Ninh Bình is a postcard-perfect destination in northern Vietnam best known for its stunning location in the Red River Delta and for the spectacular Tràng An Scenic Landscape Complex, a Unesco World Heritage Site. The province is criss-crossed with rivers and dotted with limestone karsts, caves and grottoes, making it a popular destination for trekking, kayaking and cycling. Away from the water, the province is home to a number of minority ethnic groups, including the H’Mong, Dao and Thai.
Explore the area’s stunning scenery by taking a boat trip down the meandering rivers, or take a hike and admire the views from atop one of the towering karsts. Visit the ancient capital of Hoa Lu, home to the 11th-century Dinh and Le Dynasties, and explore the nearby Tam Coc caves. Then, cool down in one of the many hot springs, or take a dip in the nearby Hoang Long River. Ninh Bình is the perfect destination for nature lovers and culture seekers alike.
