Nature has endowed Ninh Binh with magnificent green mountains and blue water. The Trang An eco-tourism site is part of the Trang An Scenic Landscape Complex, an “outdoor geological museum”.
Trang An Scenic Landscape Complex in Ninh Binh Province in northern Vietnam has just been inscribed in the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO)’s World Heritage List, is the country’s first site to be acknowledged as a mixed natural and cultural property. 7km west of the center of Ninh Binh province and 96 km south of Hanoi, Trang An covers an area of nearly 2,200 ha surrounded by limestone, hills, and river valleys.
The only way to discover the place’s beauty is on a small bamboo boat. A 3-hour tour begins at the reception center in Trang An avenue. It takes about ten minutes to go from Trang An to the river through the mountains. The weather is cool here.
The Trang An complex boasts several locally-recognized sites like the Trang An eco-tourism site, Tam Coc – Bich Dong, Bai Dinh pagoda - the largest of its kind in the country - and Hoa Lu, Vietnam’s former capital in the 10th and 11th centuries. The area is also home to temples, pagodas, paddy fields, villages, and other sacred sites. It has around 500 species of flora, 73 species of birds and 41 species of other animals, and is renowned for its diverse ecosystem, unique natural beauty, and geological characteristics.
From 2017 April 15, the studio where film Kong: Skull Island was shot in the northern province of Ninh Binh was open to tourists. Restoration work has been underway for more than 20 days and two out of three tasks have been completed, said a representative from the Trang An Landscape Management Board. The restored area is part of the tribal village depicted in the movie, with a dozen of rattan tents being set up with decorative items. Models of a ship and airplane resembling those used in Kong: Skull Island also be exhibited at the site, where parts of the movie were filmed and therefore named "Skull island." The "island" lies within the Trang An Landscape Complex.
