Trang An is look like Ha Long Bay on land. Very nice cave when you take the boat trip. It takes 2 and half hours. The landscape is nature and so nice. You should take the boat trip in the morning because it is quiet. We will recommend to everyone.

Too many tourists but still worth to go. The caves are long up to 300m and impressive. You can also paddle to help the boat man

I'd say this is the number one thing you should do if you visit nihn binh. The scenery is gorgeous and going through the caves was fun! Think it lasted about 2-3 hours on the boat but you get to get off at a few stops.

The trip started off well with glimpses of ducks, fish and goats on the rock ledges. Going through the cave systems was fascinating and a welcome break from the heat. Our oars lady paddling the boat for 21/2 hours began to get slower after an hour and not surprising trying to do that job in temperatures where by 12pm felt... More

Our family of 5, 2 boys 6 & 3 plus Grandma, enjoyed a leisurely 2 hours boat ride. Passing through lovely scenery and 9 caves. Quite an eye opener as we were in the caves. Our boys enjoyed helping with the rowing. All of us enjoyed our time here

Trang An Grottoes Caravan of boat is well-organised and safety. Temperature in April is quite well. Boat sailing is amusing. When we passed caves,we feels like back to childhood. Narrow and cool. Concert set up in the middle of lake makes us deeply feel vietnamese feeling.That's awesome!

An interesting part-day jaunt out of Nimh Binh, with good rock formations, and amazing caves through which the rowers guide their boats with a graceful ease. There are two tours from which to choose. We chose Tour 1 which has fewer temples but more river caves. The caves are illuminated by eco-lighting by the way so no need to worry... More

Got there by 8am on a Sunday morning and it is already crowded with tourists- 90% Vietnamese tourists. However lots of boats and didn't wait long for another couple to turn up so we can get going as they need 4 person in a boat. Amazing views and on way there is Vietnamese singing troupe In middle of the water... More

Our boat ride was shorter than normal - we tried to get the boat rower to stop but she refused. It was a shame we didn't get to stop off at the temples like the other boats. Nevertheless, we enjoyed the ride through the caves. The boats seem to go off in a group, probably for safety reasons, so there... More
