My wife, 4 yr old daughter and I will be visiting Vietnam for the first time (we are very avid travellers but this is our first trip to Asia). I am finding it a bit tricky to plan the Ninh Binh part of the trip. We will be in Hanoi and planning to head to Ninh Binh on the 6th of March.
- I booked a home stay in Tam Coc after reading that it’s a good base - is it? Or is there a better option?
- what would your recommendations be for this time of year? What areas are worth seeing if we are short on time as such?
- when in Ninh Binh - are there any recommended tours that can take us to the areas we will be visiting? (Ideally pick us up from Hanoi as well - and perhaps make a short stop in the incense villages on the way)
I’ve asked those questions to the reception of the home stay but they’re extremely short on answers and to be honest not very helpful - so I’m happy to pick something else if there are any recommendations. For reference I booked tam coc melody homestay
Thanks for all your help!
