The Telegraph, a UK-based website has recently released the list of 15 more extraordinary places you’ve probably never heard of and it is a pride for Vietnam to have its Tam Coc in the northern province of Ninh Binh included on the list.
“Pinned to the north of Vietnam, 60 miles south of Hanoi, Ninh Binh Province is an antidote to the crowded confines of Halong Bay. It deals in similar wonders – limestone scenery, lonely karsts rising from the water – but without a million tour boats chugging into the picture. Most striking, perhaps, is Tam Coc canyon, where cliffs and caves are laid out for photogenic reflection along the slow-moving flow of the Ngo Dong River”, says the Telegraph.
Only 60 miles from Hanoi, the Tam Coc is worth a visit if you want to experience a short vacation from the Vietnamese capital. If you are in foreign country and want to travel to Vietnam, please check the Vietnam visa requirement before your departure.
