Village of Tam Cốc

The Ha Long of the Rice Paddies

The area surrounding Tam Cốc is said to be one of the most beautiful places in the country. Here, large rock formations arise from the green fields, a sight which has earned the place the nickname "Ha Long of the Rice Paddies." The name Tam Cốc actually refers to the caves on the banks of the Ngo Dong river. The best plan is to take a leisurely float down the urbanized part of the river near the town and then explore the caves.

The boats hold two travelers and two paddlers who are in the back (they're usually old women). Sometimes, they conduct the boat with a foot oar which reminded me of the sailors on Inle Lake in Myanmar.

Ha Long Bay of the interior

Tam Cốc is known as the Ha Long Bay of the interior due to its incredible beauty. Sailing along the river among the incredible rock formations was an unforgettable and beautiful experience.


Tam Coc Village

The town of Ninh Binh has nothing special, but in the surrounding area are the caves of Tam Coc. You can visit Tam Coc on a nice bike ride or by motorbike trip from Ninh Binh. It is 12 km away. It is known as "Ha Long Bay between rice" and is a boat ride of three hours between canals and rice fields. The landscape has limestone formations. It's definitely a wonderful place. Nobody should miss it.

Wonderful landscape of the caves of Tam Coc. Wonderful boat ride. The big surprise is that you paddle with your feet. Curious!!!
