If you want to find a destination that has natural sightseeing, religious heritage, and cultural patterns, Ninh Binh is the most recommended city in Vietnam. Here are the suggestions based on my experience to make an interesting Ninh Binh tour for adventure purpose.
NINH BINH TOUR: VISIT TAM COC BICH DONG
Tam Coc Bich Dong is a landscape complex based in Hoa Lu, Ninh Binh. Also, Tam Coc is a part of Trang An, which was recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage site. The complex is included two distinct parts: a flooded cave karst system and a system of pagodas situated on the mountain.
The main vehicle to explore Tam Coc Bich Dong is the boat. You can enjoy the view while going on the boat tour. Normally, a boat will include four to six passengers. While seating on the boat, you can observe the beauty of the caves, the nature surrounding them, and the mountain. The main caves include Hang Ca, Hang Hai, and Hang Ba. During this time, you can discover the pagoda complex situated on Ngu Nhac Mountain. The religious complex is a combination of three pagodas: Ha, Trung, and Thuong. From the pagoda, you can enjoy the breathtaking view of the whole complex from the top of the mountain.
If you would like to learn more about the cultural aspects and local festivals, springtime (February to April) would be the ideal time to visit. Meanwhile, if you want a more peaceful and chill vibe while experiencing your adventure tour in Ninh Binh, you can travel during the summer (June to August). However, if summer is too hot for you, and cool weather is your preference, the late autumn period (mid-October to November) can be the choice for you.

NINH BINH TOUR: CLIMB ON HANG MUA, NINH BINH
Hang Mua is a part of the ecosystem complex of Trang An, Hoa Lu, and Ninh Binh. The name of the cave – “Mua” (Dance) originated from a historical event from the Tran dynasty. Back around 800 years in the past, this is the location where the King will enjoy the dance performance. Therefore, the cave was named “Hang Mua”.
Located close to other attractions in Ninh Binh like Tam Coc, Bich Dong, or Hoa Lu ancient capital, it is convenient to move around or organize a day trip. And if you are sceptical about transportation options for your visit, don’t worry because AVT Travel will cover and support you throughout your whole trip. Hence, you can focus to explore the places and enjoy your adventure.
While visiting Hang Mua, will include the most active activities compared to other attractions. This is because you have to climb 500-step mountainous terrain up to the top. This is also the unique point of Hang Mua because this cave is of rare cases that are not flooded. Hang Mua is definitely a must-try destination for a visit because the view from Hang Mua is stunning and magnificent. The best time of day to visit Hang Mua is early in the morning or sunset time. Besides, if you are in love with photography, these two-time slots are the perfect “golden hour” to take amazing photos of you as well as the scenery.

The adventure tour is not only about visiting sightseeing but also about living up to the local experience, especially local cuisine. In Ninh Binh, the most famous dish, that everyone visiting Ninh Binh has to try, is goat meat.
You have various choices of the way to cook goat meat that fit your taste. If you are a person who is favor the authentic taste and less seasoning, boiled or goat meat mixed with vegetables can be your go-to dish.
