Daily Mail also suggests that travelers should visit this place in October and November when water levels are high and the rice fields are ready for harvest.

A 12-night tour of Vietnamese landscapes is available, which spends two nights in Ninh Binh, including flights into Hanoi and back from Ho Chi Minh City, transfers, most meals, and some excursions.

Ninh Binh is home to Trang An Landscape Complex which was recognized as the World Cultural and Natural Heritage Site. The first and only dual world heritage in Southeast Asia.

With its towering run of jagged karst pinnacles, Ninh Binh is just as dramatic a sight as the better-known Ha Long Bay, although it doesn't come with hordes of tourists, according to the publication.

Located just two hours south of Ha Noi and bordered by rivers, farms, and temples, it's best discovered by bike or by gliding downstream on a sampan, it wrote.

Spanning a total area of 12,000 hectares, the complex symbolises the magic, mystery, and majesty of the natural world, including Hoa Lu Ancient Citadel Cultural – Historical Area, Trang An – Tam Coc – Bich Dong Scenic Area and Hoa Lu Special-Use Primary Forest.

Among them, the highlight is Trang An scenic area located in the centre of the complex. With its picturesque scenery, renowned spiritual tourism sites, unique festivals, and attractive specialities, Trang An is becoming one of Vietnam's most worth-visiting tourist destinations.

This is not the first time Ninh Binh has received compliments from international media. The province has achieved high rankings in the lists of many prestigious international tourism sites.

Previously, trips to Discover (U.S.) listed Ninh Binh among the 14 most attractive destinations in Asia in 2020. The U.S. travel magazine Travel + Leisure has listed Ninh Bình as one of Asia's 12 "coolest movie filming locations" in 2022.

Besides Ninh Binh, the top 10 crowd-free tourist spots also named other famous destinations such as the Coral Triangle; Mayan ruins in Caracol; the Pantanal tropical wetland, Brazil; the Valley of Fire State Park in Las Vegas, Nevada, the United States; the Namib Desert, Namibia; Napier port city, New Zealand; Ancient Tibet, China; the boiling lake in Morne Trois Pitons National Park, the mountainous Caribbean isle of Dominica; and the Kimberley Coast, Australia./.
