Create an itinerary including Bich Dong Pagoda
Bich Dong Pagoda stands out with its unusual formation--each of the three pagodas rest on three different levels of the mountain. Climb the steep stairs, wind through the caves, and see rice fields on the way up. The path abounds with vistas of pointed green mountains, mist, and rivers. The pagodas have different designs--the low pagoda boasts five departments, while half of the middle one is carved into the mountain. A green pond encloses the top pagoda, creating a serene and picturesque ambiance. Enter the gloomy interiors displaying altars, Buddhist statues, and smelling strongly of incense. Consider bringing a flashlight to better explore the caves. Make your Ninh Binh itinerary with Inspirock to find out what to see and where to go.

  • Motorcycle scam in front of the entrance where they ask for ridiculous amounts of money to park your bike… also wasn’t allowed in because i wore shorts, wouldn’t have been a problem if we hadn’t...

  • tourist trap don’t go. people at parking will scam you charging everyone a different price. they told us we had the someones else’s bikes, which we didn’t and held onto us not letting us leave. pagoda is nice but not worth the scam.
  • Amazing temple that's in a cave and has another chamber with bats. I'm pretty sure the parking is a scam so just park away from "parking sign" and walk in. It's a regular Buddhist temple with no ticket booth or anything. They tried charging 30k (2 people) but when I said take 20k or I'm leaving they said okay.
