Things To Do

Start your Trang An – Bai Dinh Pagoda 1 day tour with a transfer to Ninh Binh after 2-hour drive from Hanoi.

First, pay a visit to Bai Dinh – regarded as the biggest pagoda in Southeast Asia with a lot of Guinness records. The pagoda gives the chance not only to explore Buddhism culture in Vietnam but the history of Ninh Binh – the ancient capital of Vietnam during the 10th century as well. It is such a reward of nature to get on the last pagoda at the top with the panoramic view of the whole area.

After lunch in a local restaurant, continue your journey with Trang An Scenic Landscape Complex. This site is regarded as Halong Bay inland for its incredible beauty of nature. Jump on a sampan boat trip to go around and explore the areas. Now it is time for you to admire the natural surroundings of Ninh Binh and take the photo opportunities.

Great day trip from Hanoi

Such a day full of sightseeing in “Halong Bay inland”. Trang An and Bai Dinh pagoda are the best sites in Ninh Binh. We highly recommend the trip for 1 day in Ninh Binh.

Such a beautiful place

Trang An was amazing with breath-taking landscape formed by mountains, rivers, caves…etc. We did a lovely boat ride to explore the area with a lot of photos and fantastic experiences. Bai Dinh Pagoda was also incredible with World records and panoramic view from the top pagoda. Love the trip so much!

Enjoyable trip to Ninh Binh

We had such a lovely time with Jack from Conical Travel with our day trip to Trang An and Bai Dinh Pagoda. Everything was well-arranged and more than perfect with the great help of guide Jack. He showed, explained and told us all good stories about the area and took us to a great restaurant for lunch, with goat meat. We loved the trip and highly recommend it as well as Jack as tour guide.

Highly recommend!!!

This was a once in a lifetime day trip from Hanoi. The scenery was amazing, which is worth being called “Halong Bay on land”. Our tour guide Ivan was very professional, knowledgeable, and sweet. Highly recommend the trip for a day out from Hanoi.

Fun day trip with stunning nature!

The trip was fascinating. The visit to Bai Dinh Pagoda and Trang An was worthwhile and meaning full. We not only had a great feeling of beautiful nature but learned a lot about the history of the former capital of Vietnam.

Beyond Expectations!!!

Our group of 12 friends did a private day trip to Trang An and Bai Dinh Pagoda with our guide Jack from Conical Travel. He did a great job in showing us the best of Ninh Binh, along with his sense of humor. The bus was very comfortable and clean. Lunch was amazing with the specialties of Ninh Binh. We highly appreciate and recommend this tour.

Lovely family day trip to Ninh Binh

We had a memorable family day trip to Ninh Binh with our guide Loan. She was very cute, knowledgeable and took care of every member of our family all the time. The visit to Bai Dinh Pagoda and the boat ride in Trang An were the highlights of the day. Ninh Binh was so beautiful with stunning landscape, and it is a suitable place for a family trip 1 day from Hanoi.
