Things to do in Ninh Binh

Trang An Complex and Bai Dinh Pagoda day trip (from Hanoi)

1 review

  • 8 hours in total

  • Meals, round-trip transport included

  • Pick up at your place in Hanoi
A worthwhile day trip to visit Bai Dinh Pagoda and take a sampan boat trip along Trang An River, a recent UNESCO World Heritage Site.


Pick up

Around 8 a.m., your local guide will pick you up at your hotel in the Old Quarter. The drive to Ninh Binh will be approximately 2 hours.

Main activities

  • 10:30 a.m.: Arriving in Ninh Binh, your first stop is Bai Dinh Pagoda, which has hundreds of Buddhist statues including the biggest statue of Buddha made in bronze standing 10 meters tall.
  • 12:30 p.m.: Time to take a break and have lunch at a local restaurant with Ninh Binh traditional dishes cooked from goat meat.
  • 1:30 p.m.: Head to Trang An Complex. Upon on arrival, take the boat trip along Trang An River to enjoy its cave complex. The scenery of Trang An is a unique combination of deep turquoise river water, rising limestone mountains, water caves, and a clear blue sky which you will not find anywhere else. The sampan boat will be rowed by local people, lasting around 2 to 3 hours.
  • After the boat trip, get on a bus and return to Hanoi city.

Your local guide will drop you off at the original departure point and the trip concludes.

The highlight of the day was the boat trip, through truly wonderful scenery. We did not see the Pagoda which was a shame but we did go to some temples instead. Overall a lovely trip.

Still have question?

How do I book on Inspitrip?

There are two options: Small Group and Private tour. For both options, you can chat with your local guide and other people in your group even before the trip takes place.
  • Small group tour: operates with a maximum of 10 people. If you like to make new friends, this is a great option. You would pay for the trip to confirm your slot, then join a chat group with your local guide as well as fellow travel buddies, everything would be on Inspitrip. Get to know them!
  • Private tour: maximizes your privacy and allows you to freely customize the itinerary. First, request to communicate any specific needs you may have, wait a couple minutes for these requests to be confirmed, and then you can proceed to payment.

What is the cancellation and refund policy?

Cancellation is free if you cancel up to 48 hours before the trip date. We believe that this is the fairest way to ensure that both our travelers and local guides are happy.

Does the Small Group option still operate if there are less than 10 people signed up?

Yes, even if you are the only person who signs up for the trip on a given date, the tour will still take place.
