Travellogue on a trip to the south of vietnam. The venice in Vietnam called Ninh Binh

Venice Of Vietnam: Ninh Binh

Vietnam ladies and gentlemen is a pristine piece of Land and if you are an adventure traveller and still want to see how God had initially designed things before the Plastic Holocaust you should visit Vietnam once. I can say the same for people here but then that would be too judgemental.

90 Km South of Hanoi, is located Ninh Binh province, in the heart of the Red river delta. The red river slithers on its back refusing to move ahead coiling up every now and then to make a bend. The green grass soothes the heart and the lush paddy fields sermonize abundance and grace.
History says that Ninh Binh, was the original capital, much before the Chinese invasions and Vietnam wars. The view one gets looking at it at all from the top, does make it look like a fortress built out of Limestone mountains. A visit to the pagoda of the King Hen lay, gives some idea of the history this piece of land has seen.

Much beyond lay the great water tracks of Ninh Binh. The river flowing between the limestone mountains, and thick grass foliage actually smells of the riches it has brought down in the years of its flow.A trip on the boat is sheer ecstacy, following the curves of the water passing small bridges and caves.

The high point was the caves under the mountains which can be crossed on the boat. The first cave is the longest on the 6 Km stretch. Its upon entering the cave that one realizes that the No matter how hard the Sun tries, it can not pierce the fortress carted by mountain and the river. And then 2 more follow.

The Vietnamese families, villages run the boats here and get paid minimally but they know how to make it a pleasant experience for the tourists. Courtesy is one word, one feels, run as a thread of the social fabric.

It was a quick trip with cycling added to it after the 2 hours on the boat.

Will pour more
