From the enchanting natural beauty of the caves to the magnificent historical relics such as the temples of King Dinh and King Le, each location is part of a profound story about the culture and history of this land.

This journey is not just a regular tourist trip but also an opportunity for us to seek and explore the true beauty of life and nature. Living amidst the majestic nature and hearing deeply historical stories, we experienced profound emotions and meaningful moments from every aspect of this journey.

Day 1: We Explore the Ancient Capital of Hoa Lu, Tam Coc, and Mua Cave

Guests can enjoy hot tea and light snacks to recharge for the next leg of the journey. This is also an opportunity for everyone to socialize, share their plans, and expectations for the trip.

10:30: Explore the Ancient Capital of Hoa Lu Starting the journey from Hanoi, the bus and tour guide take us to Ninh Binh, where the ancient capital of Hoa Lu sits amidst the stunning and majestic natural scenery. Just over two hours later, we arrive in Hoa Lu – the former capital of Dai Co Viet from 968 to 1010, under the reigns of King Dinh Tien Hoang and King Le Dai Hanh. Stepping into the ancient capital of Hoa Lu, we can’t help but feel reverent and solemn. The remaining traces of a bygone era are vivid, evoking indescribable emotions. Landmarks such as the temples of King Dinh and King Le appear before us with ancient beauty and grandeur, deeply imbued with the characteristic culture and history of the nation. The enthusiastic guide tells us stories about the feudal dynasties here, about heroic achievements, and historic events full of magnificence. Each story, each tale, brings to life a part of the glorious past, increasing our admiration and pride in the nation’s history. The unique architecture, the intricate carvings on every wall, every brick, contain invaluable cultural values, creating an inspiring and meaningful journey.

Every detail, every decoration on the walls tells a story, reviving a part of the golden history. Next is the temple of King Le Dai Hanh, where deep-seated cultural and historical values are preserved. Standing before these relics, we feel like reliving the glorious days of our country’s history, experiencing the greatness and pride of the nation.

Not only does Hoa Lu have historical value, but it also stands out with its stunning natural scenery. To better understand the life and landscape here, we participated in a cycling activity around the countryside. The rustic village roads, surrounded by lush rice fields, interspersed with ancient houses, create a peaceful and serene rural picture. The sound of birds singing, the gentle breeze rustling the branches, the scent of newly harvested rice… all blend together, giving us a sense of tranquility and peace. This activity not only helped us discover the beauty of nature but also brought intimate moments, connecting with the simple life of the local people. The smiles, the friendly greetings from the farmers, the playful children along the way made the trip warmer and more meaningful.

Enjoying Local Cuisine in Ninh Binh

At 12:30, we were ready to embark on a new journey – a culinary journey in Ninh Binh. Stopping at a local restaurant, we not only savored the specialties of the Ninh Binh region but also experienced a part of the local culture and hospitality spirit of the people here. 

Ninh Binh goat meat, with its distinctive and nutritious taste, is a symbol of the delicate combination of nature and humanity. Prepared from free-range goats on the limestone mountain range, goat meat is not only a delicious dish but also a part of the story of this local land.

Accompanying it is burnt rice, which carries the rich flavor and skillfulness of the local cuisine. The rice grains are roasted to golden crispness, creating a unique flavor that makes the meal complete and enticing.

Gathering together, enjoying delicious dishes, we not only satisfy our taste buds but also enjoy the warm atmosphere and hospitality of the people of Ninh Binh. Lunch is not just a simple meal but also an opportunity for sharing, bonding, and understanding the local culture.

Boating to Explore Tam Coc, Ninh Binh

As the afternoon sun begins to cast its golden glow over the limestone mountains.

At 13:30, we arrived at the Tam Coc pier, ready for an amazing journey on the Ngo Dong River. Tam Coc, also known as “three caves,” is famous for its pristine and majestic natural landscapes, where the beauty of the mountains blends harmoniously to create a lively watercolor painting.

On the Ngo Dong River, a journey begins, taking us into a different world, where the tranquility of nature captivates every traveler. The small boat gently glides on the azure river, like a boat lost in the midst of a serene natural painting.

Gentle waves lapping against the boat, the soft sound like a gentle breeze whispering in our ears, bringing us a sense of tranquility. On either side of the riverbank, golden ripe rice fields stretch out endlessly, creating a harmonious and serene landscape.

In the peaceful and tranquil space of Tam Coc, we immerse ourselves in the magical beauty of the towering mountains and the graceful flight of white storks against the deep blue sky. The fragrance of ripened rice blends with the sound of flowing water, creating a captivating natural symphony.

Tam Coc, with its three main caves: Ca (First), Hai (Second), and Ba (Third), each cave possesses a mysterious and mystical beauty. Stepping into these caves, we feel like entering a fairy tale world, where flickering light from the cave entrance filters through the shimmering golden foliage, creating a space full of enchantment and mystery.

Ca Cave is the first and largest cave among the three. As the boat enters the cave, we marvel at the sparkling stalactites, forming surreal and unique shapes. The light from outside creates glittering rays, reflecting on the water’s surface, making the interior of the cave appear mystical and breathtaking.

Continuing our journey, we arrive at Hai Cave and Ba Cave. Although smaller, these caves are equally fascinating. The scenery inside the caves is created by stalactites and stalagmites of various shapes and sizes, like works of art meticulously carved by nature over millions of years. Each rock carries within it a story, a legend, leaving us in awe and amazement.

The local people, with their skill and talent, have transformed traditional boats into means of navigating us through the twists and turns, the winding rivers. Their unique skills and warm hospitality make us feel admiration and gratitude, as it is through them that we experience the full beauty of Tam Coc.

Returning to the pier, we feel as if we have just lived through a beautiful dream. The pristine and majestic beauty of Tam Coc, the lingering moments amidst the serene nature, and the warmth of the local people, all create an unforgettable and unforgettable journey.

Stepping into the mysterious cave of Mua Cave, we felt like entering another world, where the majestic beauty of the mountains and the wonders of nature blend together. Known as a must-visit destination in Ninh Binh, Mua Cave offers an incredibly beautiful and captivating panoramic view.

Conquering Mua Cave is not only a physical challenge but also a journey to discover the true beauty of nature. With over 500 stone steps leading to the mountaintop, each step was a new challenge but also a worthwhile experience that we will never forget.

Reaching the top of Mua Cave, a breathtaking landscape unfolds before our eyes. From here, we could admire the panoramic view of Tam Coc and the city of Ninh Binh from a completely different perspective. Below the mountain is the winding Ngô Đồng river, vast golden rice fields, creating a peaceful and romantic scenery.

Every viewpoint from the top of Mua Cave left us amazed and mesmerized. The scenery resembled a vivid watercolor painting, with the green of the trees, the white of the clouds, and the gray of the limestone mountains. It created a breathtaking landscape that made all the fatigue of climbing the mountain disappear.

Standing at the top of Mua Cave, breathing in the fresh air, admiring the vast scenery of the land and sky, gave us a sense of peace and tranquility. This was a moment where all the worries and tiredness of everyday life seemed to vanish, leaving only a connection with nature and inner calm.

The top of Mua Cave is also an ideal place to capture the most beautiful moments of the trip. We didn’t forget to take memorable photos, preserving the best images of nature and people. The photos taken from the top of Mua Cave always have a surreal beauty, with the vast natural scenery and expansive views.

After breakfast and check-out, the car picked us up and departed for Bai Dinh Pagoda – one of the largest and most famous pagodas in Vietnam. Bai Dinh Pagoda is famous not only for its majestic architecture but also for preserving many records of Vietnamese Buddhism. The group was guided to visit the unique architectural structures of the pagoda, the giant Buddha statues, and listen to the history of this temple. The sacred and peaceful space at Bai Dinh Pagoda made our souls feel light and serene.

When arriving at the pagoda, we will need to purchase tickets at the gate. After buying tickets, we begin our journey to explore Bai Dinh Pagoda, famous for its many records such as 500 Arhat statues, a 100-ton bronze statue of Shakyamuni Buddha, and a 36-ton bronze bell. Each step along the Arhat corridor feels like being immersed in a space of tranquility and sanctity. The Arhat statues with their unique and finely crafted appearances emerge before our eyes, each statue like a story, a prayer for peace and happiness.

The sound of the temple bell echoes, blending with the chanting and the gentle breeze, creating a serene and peaceful atmosphere. We feel the inner peace standing before the majestic Buddha statues, amidst the sacred space of Bai Dinh Pagoda. The surrounding scenery harmonizes with the hearts of people, bringing a sense of serenity and contentment.

Here, I am not just a visitor but also a worshipper, paying homage. Every step, every lit incense stick, is a prayer and hope for a peaceful and happy life. I distinctly feel that Bai Dinh Pagoda, not just a famous tourist spot, is also a place of faith and hope for millions of souls.

12:30: Enjoying local cuisine

After visiting Bai Dinh Pagoda, we stop at a restaurant in Ninh Binh to enjoy a buffet lunch.

Sitting on the boat, we immerse ourselves in nature, amidst the majestic limestone mountains and the clear blue river. Each cave in Trang An has its own beauty, with strange shapes and legendary stories. Especially, our group visited the King Kong film set – where the famous movie was shot in 2016. The majestic and pristine scenery here made us amazed and excited.

This was not just a discovery trip but also an opportunity for us to bond more closely, to understand more deeply about the culture and people of the locality. Each moment stopping by the beautiful landscapes, each epic historical story echoing amidst the ancient capital of Hoa Lu, and even the moments of leisure on the boat down the Tam Coc river, all blend together into a vivid tapestry of memories. The hearty local meals with goat meat, burnt rice, and other specialties not only warmed our hearts but also helped us feel closer and more connected. Through each road, each peaceful village corner, we not only observed but also deeply felt the simple yet charming beauty of Ninh Binh. The journey may end, but those beautiful memories and emotions will remain forever, like an indelible mark.
