Tam Coc Bich Dong is a part of Trang An Scenic Landscape Complex – a UNESCO-recognized heritage site of Vietnam, located in the northern province of Ninh Binh. Most tourists are familiar to the beauty of this place during the harvest season. However, less tourists know that the green rice season of Tam Coc also offers a unique experience amongst the paddies.
The best place for enjoying the stunning beauty of green rice fields of Tam Coc – Bich Dong is the Mua Cave Complex, which is an area composed of intricate cave systems and Limestone Mountains. In fact, no one knows the true story behind name of Mua Cave Complex, but local people here believe that Mua Cave is where King Tran enjoyed musical performance, lending itself to the name “Mua”, which means “dancing” in Vietnamese.
In order to reach the peak of the Mua Mountain where several towers are located, tourists will pass through winding roads and take on the adventurous challenge. Due to few visitors decide to join the challenge, the mountain is still kept as a quiet and peaceful sanctuary to admire the spectacular view of the mountain-flanked rice fields below.
Coming to this site, tourists are also impressed by the Ngo Dong River weaving through the Limestone Mountains and being dotted with wooden boats that glide slowly between the fields.
When July comes, the area will changes its colors from green to yellow, marking that a new harvest season has started to come to Ninh Binh. Taking a Tam Coc – Bich Dong short tour from Hanoi capital is a worthwhile experience for tourists to join at weekends.
