Trang An – Bai Dinh Tour

The province of Ninh Binh has been well-known for typical attractions for decades, such as: Tam Coc (In-land Halong bay), Hoa Lu (the ancient capital) or Cuc Phuong (the 1st National Park). And for now, it offers you more destinations, of which the specific characteristics of Northern geography, history and religion are gracefully displayed.

Trang An Scenic Landscape Complex (Bai Dinh, Ninh Binh)

If you want to set a step onto a really appealing and quiet area, you should not miss Trang An. This scenic area covers hundreds of valleys, limestone caves, lakes and rivers with the terrain dated back 250 million years ago. A little canoe will take you through the picturesque landscape with restfulness, and this maze of limestone rocks will seclude you away from the pressure and noise of busy life.

Apart from natural values, within a day-trip to Ninh Binh, you will find the delightful meanings and aspects of the most major religion in Asia, Buddhism, in the largest temple complex of the nation: Bai Dinh. Recently completed in 2010s, the site reflects a great respect of Vietnamese people to their Buddhas, and it is also a popular destination for million pilgrims annually during traditional New-Year celebration. Visiting the complex, you will have opportunities to see the biggest gold-plated copper Buddha statues, including the Goddess of Mercy – Quan Yin with a thousand of arms and eyes making layers of coronas behind her; then the biggest bell tower bringing you a panoramic view of green mountains and river; the long corridors of 500 Arhat sculptures along 02 sides, and the other attractions what you should see by your eyes.

June 2014, UNESCO has inscribed Trang An Scenic Landscape Complex (including Trang An ecotourism site, Tam Coc – Bich Dong, Bai Dinh pagoda – the largest of its kind in the country – and Hoa Lu, Vietnam’s former capital in the 10th and 11th centuries) in Ninh Binh Province to its World Heritage List.
