My Favorite Place in Vietnam: Tam Coc // Ninh Binh, Vietnam
After four straight days of non-stop travel, I arrived at my final destination before Hanoi: Tam Coc. This area near Ninh Binh, Vietnam is just stunning!
Imagine the famous Ha Long Bay with its tall, narrow limestone peaks jutting out of the water, but instead of water, there were lush green rice fields. Also, less tourists... That's Tam Coc!

I arrived in Ninh Binh after spending the night in a sleeper car on a train from Dong Hoi. I wasn't sure if I'd find a place to store my bag, but immediately I saw signs to a place that would take them and rent me a bike. From there, I rode to Tam Coc and found myself surrounded by an emerald dream. The landscape was absolutely stunning!
I made my way to Bich Dong Pagoda, the home of three historic temples built into a mountain. Then, I biked along the river to watch the tourists who rented boats float through the countryside. I took a break from bike riding to at Thai Vi Temple, a isolated, quiet retreat in the middle of a valley. And then I climbed up the most stunning view of Tam Coc at Hang Mua, where I got to take in all the the gorgeousness of this beautiful place.

THE BEST PLACE in VIETNAM - Ninh Binh, Tam Coc
Of all the places in Vietnam, Ninh Binh is by far the most beautiful. Floating on the water next to these giant steep mountains rising from the ground is just surreal. Ninh Binh is also known as the Ha Long Bay on land, but having been to both places, Ninh Binh is way more impressive, since you can be in the middle of it, up-close. It's still not too touristy yet and has a serene atmosphere. I'd prefer the Tam Coc boat ride to the Trang An one, because the mountains look nicer and you don't have rice paddies in between. In Trang An you will go through 9 caves and in Tam Coc through 3, which is well enough.
It is well worth staying here for a few days, but it's also possible to do day trip tour from Hanoi.
If you go, do not stay in Ninh Binh City (nothing to see here), but in Tam Coc!
We tried the mountain goat, it was pretty good.
UNEXPECTED ADVENTURE // Tam Coc/Ninh Binh, Vietnam
Vlog 7 of my backpacking trip though Vietnam! After the overnight bus from Phong Nha dropped me off in Tam Coc village instead of Ninh Binh city, I went on an unexpected adventure, all before noon! Bicycling to Bich Dong Pagoda and a bird sanctuary nature park with caves. Tam Coc-Bich Dong is a UNESCO World Heritage site.
