Mua Cave Motorcycle Tour

Ninh Binh Dance Cave is located at the foot of Mua Mountain, a large cave in the middle of Hoa Lu Ancient Capital. Looking down from above, you will see this place looks like an upside-down bell. 

One of the most interesting experiences at Mua Cave is conquering 486 stone steps leading to the top of the mountain. From the top of the mountain, Tam Coc’s charming beauty with vast green rice fields will freak you out.

Also, on both sides of the stairs of Mua Cave are carved figures bearing cultural characteristics. This is also the place where King Tran in the past used to visit to listen to gorgeous women singing and dancing, so it was called Mua Cave (Mua means dancing in the local language). The beauty of Mua Cave makes both domestic and foreign tourists overwhelmed by the beauty of nature.

Van Long Lagoon Motorbike Tour

Van Long lagoon is one of the famous ecotourism areas in Ninh Binh. This place retains the pristine features that attract many motorbikers and is home to many flora and fauna. 

With attractive scenery, Van Long Lagoon is known as "the bay without waves" because you will see the water surface as flat as a giant mirror when the boat is on the lagoon. 

However, the water surface of Van Long does not have the blue color of the sea but clearly shows the extremely beautiful layers of moss on the bottom.

An extremely interesting discovery not to be missed that Van Long Lagoon brings to you is a system of up to 1000 beautiful caves, many large caves like a charming watercolor painting. 

Among them, the Ca cave stands out; the highlight is the cave that spreads 250m long, 8m high, and 10m wide. This cave is also the gathering and breeding place of catfish, perch, and banana fish.
