    We booked a private tour to Ninh Binh, to discover some more beautiful places around the province. We heard Thung Nham was a natural and beautiful and wanted to see for ourselves.
    It was a lovely and natural site and the birdlife was amazing and as this is a relatively new destination in Ninh Binh province few tourists have ventured here, but my tip is it will become a regular spot for tourists, as the quietness and fresh air were delightful. The pagoda we visited was ancient and excellent and the boat journey through the Tam Coc caves was also very interesting, so we had a great day.
