Mua Caves (Hang Múa – Ninh Bình) is one of the most famous attractions in Ninh Binh.

The cave brings you one of the best panoramic view of one of the nicest sceneries in Vietnam- that’s Ninh Binh- which is known as a wonder of the world, the Telegraph from UK said “It’s an area known locally as Vietnam’s “Inland Halong Bay” or Mua Cave – The Vietnamese “Great Wall of China”

This can’t be denied since more and more foreigners choose Mua Cave (Hang Mua – Vietnamese name) for their short holidays while being in the north of Vietnam.

Tam Coc is known to travelers as Vietnam`s Halong Bay without water. Halong Bay on the rice paddies (a striking resemblance to Guilin and Yangshuo in China). Tam Coc has huge rock formation jutting out of rice fields. Tam Coc means “three caves”.

Bich Dong is the most second beautiful pagoda of Vietnam, after Perfume Pagoda. It is a couple of kilometers north of Tam Coc. The Lower Pagoda is located at the foot of the outcrop, from which it’s a climb of about 100 steps to the Middle Pagoda, then a shorter but still steep ascent to the upper Pagoda. Inside each cave temple, looming statues and the smoke of burning incense create an otherworldly atmosphere. Outside the reverse couldn’t be more true: there are some incredible views of the countryside.

This tour can be organized as joining group or private and cost in USD per person.
