Ninh Binh

Ninh Binh, Vietnam

A guy we met in Hanoi recommended us to come here to simply get a moped & scoot about to explore the place, so that's exactly what we did.

We made our way to Tam Coc which was only about a15 minute ride & took a trip on the Ngo Dong River which was a bit like a mini Halong Bay with huge caves which we paddled through, and was surrounded for Miles by jagged cliffs jutting out of the lush paddy fields. The scenery was just gorgeous. A quirky little Surprise to the trip was that the locals actually paddled the boats with their feet - it looked like a great workout!

We also did a spot of unexpected rock climbing! what we thought was a few steps up a Mountain to take in the gorgeous views ended up being climbing up the side off quite treacherous rock for about 30 minutes in just our flip flops. But its actually doing unplanned things like this that have made our trip so amazing :-)
