Tam Coc Ninh Binh is best rowing-boat ride. However, you’ll need to be prepared for a glut of fairly persistent hawkers. The guys photographing you will want to sell you the photos when you return. Also, overprice drinks and snacks are sold at the turnaround point for boat trips. Bring your own refreshments, and combine a polite but firm ‘no’ and complete lack of interest to combat the hawkers.
Tam Coc is about 90 kilometers from the South of Hanoi in Ninh Binh province (home of the Tran dynasty). Also it’s around 7 kilometres to the West of the city of Ninh Binh.
