Some notes to keep in mind when traveling in Ninh Binh
Ninh Binh is a very large place. If you are intending to explore all the sites in Ninh Binh; you should stay here for at least 5 days to explore.
You should have your schedule ready in order to book at the right places. At present, there are many tours around Ninh Binh. If you do not have time; you can book tours to discover Ninh Binh; but it is best to prepare yourself as it allows more freedom on the trip.
If you travel in Ninh Binh in summer; you should bring sun-cream, sun-glasses and long sleeved clothes to protect yourself from the heat.
Ask your receptionist for the necessary information prior to leaving because locals rarely speak English.
Always ask for your hotel address and phone number if you should need help in case of a problem.
Ninh Binh is very crowded at the beginning of the year (from January to April). If you travel at this time; the price of the services will be higher.
Hope that my advice will be helpful for you. Have a good trip and be safe.
