A visit to Trang An, Vietnam

 

Tràng An is a scenic area near Ninh Bình, Vietnam renowned for its boat cave tours. Tthe Trang An Scenic Landscape Complex was inscribed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site 23 June 2014, at the 38th session of the World Heritage Committee in Doha

 

A visit to Vietnam is incomplete without visiting Trang An.

The tourist boats are safe factory made ones with no seams

 

There are lots of tourists visiting Trang An

 

The female rowers can take a boat load of 4 passengers on about half an hour’s rowing sightseeing. I rowed for a while and got tired.

 

Passenger safety is taken seriously, and all have to wear life jackets although the female rowers do not.

 

 

 

 

 

we passed by a temple

the boats enter a tunnel

 

 

We entered the subterranean tunnel

 

 

 

it was dark inside as the tunnel was long

 

there were lights at points inside

 

 

 

at places the roof was low

 

 

and the side wall close at times

 

 

 

light at the end of the tunnel

 

outside at last

 

 

 

 

 

 

ore beautiful scene

 

 

we entered another tunnel

 

this tunnel is shorter

 

 

 

 

 

there were no lights inside and we were out in no time

 

 

again another tunnel, this one near human habitation or place of worship

 

a wide and short one

 

 

more beautiful scenes

 

 

 

 

boats of locals are different

 

 

 

 

 

 

another tunnel again!

 

and shorter too

 

 

 

we finally got ashore

 

 

Trang An, Vietnam, was a memorable trip
