6 ways to get to Ninh Binh, Vietnam

If you’re a new traveler or don’t have a lot of experience, a tour might help you ease into traveling and save time. There are some options for you to travel to Ninh Binh


Ninh Binh Department of Tourism
Address: Dinh Tien Hoang Street, Dong Thanh Ward, Ninh Binh City, Ninh Binh.
Tel: (+84) 229.3.844.101

a. Bring cash with you
There are only a few ATMs that are available in Ninh Binh. And you nearly find no one in Tam Coc, Trang An, and other rural areas. In Tam Coc, there are some restaurants which charge you more than 5% if you pay by credit card. Therefore, make sure you bring enough money.

b. Be aware of the mini backpacker district
The area near the train station has become a mini backpacker district which is full of travel agents, touts, overpriced drinks, and English-menu restaurants. It is cramped and annoying. In addition, you’re often pushed to pay prohibitive prices. It’s better to stay away from it.

c. Keep calm when driving
Riding a scooter, feeling the wind on your face and listening to funny engine sounds will blow your mind and distract your attention. However, transportation in Vietnam is totally crazy. Therefore, don’t be overexcited. Keep calm and don’t forget “safety first

d. Create a must-bring bag
Sunblock Cream: Apply sunblock cream every 2 hours when boating or cycling in Trang An and Tam Coc
Anti-bug balm: never forget to apply anti-bug cream or put on anti-bug clothes when hiking in Cuc Phuong National Park. Or else, you will be attacked terribly by mosquitoes, insects, and even leech.

e. Be aware of floating hawkers
There a lot of floating hawkers both in Tam Coc and Trang An. They often push you to buy something no matter how hard you explain that you don’t need anything. Don’t waste time or be loud. What you should do is gently reject, then be quiet and continue to catch the view. Besides, bring with you some bottles of water and a snake. When hawkers sailing on boats along the river see you have your own food, they won’t insist you buy something from them.
