Trang An Grottoes and Boat tour
This is one of the favorite things of your whole trip in Vietnam. You basically hop on a small rowing boat and a lady rower takes you on a 2-hour journey through caves, temples and lakes. They usually wait for a group of four to assemble.
The technique needed to maneuver the boat inside the underwater caves is impressive, watch your head!
During the whole trip, the scenery is memorizing. Trang An is usually the second choice of travelers in Ninh Binh in terms of boat rides. Most people do Tam Coc only. Still, it’s advisable that you make your way there early in the morning or late in the afternoon where most day Asian trippers coming in gigantic bus excursions are not there.
