Viet Nam News - - LIFE&STYLE -

NINH BÌNH — Lo­cated around 100km to the south of Haø Noäi, Ninh Bình Prov­ince hosts spec­tac­u­lar karst moun­tains re­flected on rivers. The most beau­ti­ful site may be Tam Coác with moun­tains, caves and cliffs sprout­ing along gen­tle Ngoâ Ñoàng River. The site has been dubbed the “in­land Haï Long Bay”.

In re­cent years, Ninh Bình has shined brightly on the world’s tourism map with mil­lions of for­eign vis­i­tors each year. Most of the tourists can­not help but be “wowed” by ro­matic and splen­did land­scapes at a series of sites like Traøng An, Tam Coác- Bích Ñoäng and Vaân Long marsh land.

Tourism sites in the prov­ince can be vis­ited all year round with spe­cial beauty each sea­son. The be­gin­ning of spring and be­gin­ning of sum­mer are con­sid­ered the best time to tour around the prov­ince. In the first pe­riod, the weather is nei­ther too cold nor too hot, and a fresh land­scape full of en­ergy is suit­able to those who like trav­el­ling and vis­it­ing pago­das.

In the se­cond pe­riod, from April to June, one should visit the prov­ince to en­joy the sea­son of the but­ter­fly. The best place to see but­ter­flies is Cuùc Phöông Na­tional Park, which is dec­o­rated with thou­sands of colour­ful but­ter­flies fly­ing in sunshine.

The end of but­ter­fly sea­son is the be­gin­ning of har­vest sea­son with a car­pet of ma­ture rice in Tam Coác. Im­mense fields of yel­low rice stretch to the feet of the karst moun­tains. The aerial scene from some peaks may be breath­tak­ingly beau­ti­ful. Ma­ture rice sea­son lasts un­til the end of June.

For the rest of the year, Ninh Bình’s land­scape boasts great po­ten­tial for photo hun­ters. — VNS
