Trang An Eco Tourism - Bai Dinh Pagoda
Located East of Ninh Binh province and covering 2000 hectares, Trang An eco-tourism complex is divided into 5 main sections: specially preserved area in the ancient citadel of Hoa Lu, a central area, a natural area of grottoes and caves, a tourist service area and the holy mountain of Bai Dinh Pagoda area. The total 47 historical vestiges, hidden caves and grottoes in the limestone karsts, valleys, rivers and streams all together create a fanciful landscape. With hundreds of statues both big and small, and numerous categories of architectural work you will never be short of things to see.
Bai Dinh Pagoda is now one of the biggest in Vietnam, and in South East Asia as well. This place truly is a must see for all travellers
