A boat tour around Trang An will reveal something not many foreign tourists know -- indeed, this hidden attraction and its breathtaking landscape is Ninh Binh’s gem.
Trang An is marked by the large number of colourful boats inviting guests to take a tour around the river for a clearer view of the towering karst mountains and lush greenery. The boat tour traverses a route that allows tourists to enter interesting caves, and visit local temples. A trip around Trang An is a serene, relaxing experience — especially with the slow rowing of the boat — but it could get pretty hot. Tourists are encouraged to bring sunscreen, hats, and water to make the trip more comfortable.
