This sight is supposed to be one of Vietnam’s best sights and is said to come just a little behind the UNESCO World Heritage site of Halong Bay. The view is very simple. There is a lazy river that meanders through ageless caves, locals grow rice next to the shallow banks of this river and this river is protected on either side by mighty ranges of limestone karsts that project eerily everywhere.
This view can be seen at Ninh Binh’s Tam Coc and Hang Mua. Tam Coc allows you to feel the experience while sitting on a bot slowly paddling through the river, while Hang Mua or Mua Cave ensures that its steep 500 steps give you a bird’s eye view of this sensational natural wonder. The only sad part when I was here a couple of days back was that there was hardly any sun and in spite of that, I adored the view. Just imagine, how much better the view would be when the colors get glorified by the sun’s rays.
