Visitors to the Trang An tourism site in Ninh Binh province are very impressed by Tam Coc which looks like Ha Long Bay on land.
While Hoa Lu is famous for its temples dedicated to the Dinh and Le Kings which were built in the 10th century, Tam Coc is known as a place where the Le King lived a secluded life.
Located in Van Lam commune, Ninh Hai village, Hoa Lu district, Tam Coc has three caves: Ca, Hai and Ba formed by the Ngo Dong River.
Ca Cave, about 127m in length, runs through a big mountain. Its mouth is more than 20m wide. Hai Cave, nearly 1km from Ca Cave, is 60m in length and Ba Cave 50m in length.
From the centre’s pier, visitors enjoy going for a row in the cool and clear weather, and seeing the breathtaking scenery.
On their way, they can stop at Thai Vi and Tam Coc temples along the Ngo Dong River.
