The Hanoitimes - Mua Cave, Ba Na Hills, Tam Thanh Fresco Village… these are the best place in Vietnam for people who love to discover.
Small “Great Wall” in Ninh Binh
Being located in Dau Khe Ha hamlet, Ninh Xuan Commune, Hoa Lu district, Ninh Binh province, Mua cave is one of must-see attractions that you should call on when doing a trip to Ninh Binh.You can connect your visit to Tam Coc, Trang An or Bai Dinh pagoda with biking, then trekking to this cave.

Mua Cave has its meaning as “dancing cave” because this site was previously considered as the place where Tran king used to come to enjoy dancing & singing shows performed in this cave.
In addition, Mua Cave is constructed following the model of “miniature Great Wall” in China with nearly 500 steps up to mountains to conquer. It is a hard trek up with many of its uneven limestone steps ( expecially at the top point) but worth your conquering efforts for impressive panoramic view of Tam Coc, Trang An & Ninh Binh city when you reach the top point of Mua mountains.
Take your leisurely trek up with care due to steep steps on the way.For wonderful panoramic photos of golden rice fields & limestone monntains,you’d better arrange your trip to Ninh Binh & Mua cave between April and May when the rice is getting ripe from green to yellow colours.

“French Village” in Ba Na Hills, Da Nang
The magical French Village!! Located around 1,487 meters over the sea water level, the climate in Ba Na Hills is pretty cool and breezy, it was around 17 degrees celcius at night during our stay. Inside French Village there’s a Wax Statue Museum filled with many famous figures from music, movie, sports, politics, etc industries. You can also enjoy various art performances in French Village.

The sky was overcast when we got there, in fact it was drizzling a little while in the afternoon, that explains why the weather became foggy during the night, resulting a mysterious yet romantic vibes. Every corner of French Village is so pretty and picture worthy or instagenic no wonder we saw so many couples having their pre-wedding photo session in Ba Na Hills.

The most convenient way to enjoy Ba Na Hills is by staying in the Ba Na Hills at Mercure Ba Na Hills Hotel. The hotel is located nicely in the beautiful French Village.
“Small South Korea” on Tam Thanh Fresco Village
Tam Thanh village has become a new tourist attraction in Quang Nam Province with bright and colorful giant mutual paintings. Located in Vietnam’s central province of Quang Nam, Tam Thanh used to be a poor fishing village, like other hundred thousand villages across the country. However, an art project with the participating of artists from both Vietnam and South Korea has changed the image of Tam Thanh completely.
Walls and doors are painted with bright colors and cute images. The painting themes are varied from familiar cartoon characters, such as genie from “Aladdin and the lamp”; nature, such as sea and its creatures; to daily activities of local people.
Tam Thanh is the first mural village in Vietnam while in South Korea, the culture of mural painting on buildings and villages has become very popular.

That sight is really fresh, so it makes everyone fall in love with one at the first sight. That sight is Ninh Thuan province. Mui Dinh is far from Phan Rang city about 30 kilometers. Starting in Ho Chi Minh city, you go follow 1A highway to Ca Na intersection, then turn right along the littoral way adding with 20 kilometers. It is Dinh cape.
In other words, Dinh cape is not a new space, there are many tourists coming here 2 years ago. However, in the present, Dinh cape is paid attention so much. It may be the hottest destination in Summer 2017.
