Photographs of Ninh Binh, Vietnam

Photographs of Ninh Binh to inspire you to visit with your family (Vietnam)

Most people only visit Ninh Binh on a day trip from Hanoi, however you really need at least 3 days here to enjoy everything it has to offer. The surrounding countryside is beautiful in all of its rural glory, and it’s only a very cheap 2 hour train ride from Hanoi.

These photographs of Ninh Binh were taken when travelling through Vietnam on a family adventure with my young kids.  We stayed here for four days before continuing our journey south towards Hoi An, Ho Chi Minh City and Phu Quoc Island.
