TAM COC MEANS THREE LIMESTONE CAVES

Tam Coc is located in Ninh Binh, it is 2 hours driving from Hanoi ( to the south of Hanoi capital). Tam Coc just understands " Tam" means three, “Coc" means caves. Tam Coc means three limestone caves in Ngo Dong river of Ninh Binh. Tam Coc becomes well-known with most of the tourists around the world because of the natural beauty and imposing scenery by limestone mountains, rivers, and water paddy rice. When you book Discovery Ninh Binh Luxury Tour: Full day, we will arrange you take a boat trip along Ngo Dong River in Tam Coc then paddle through three limestone caves. 

Tam Coc Tours ( Rowing boat, walking, fishing, biking) are one of the most interesting Ninh Binh Tours from Ecoway Travel.

1.  Meet the amazing and smiling Vietnamese people rowing with their feet

Tourists visit Ninh Binh increasingly every year. The higher influx of tourists means that the boat rowers

must work longer hours. Since tourism is a big income for local people and rowing with the hands can lead to severe back pain, Vietnamese people came up with an ingenious idea – feet rowing.

Rowing the boat by feet is not only faster but it also involves less effort. Another advantage is that while using their feet to row, the people can use their hands for other activities such as using the phone, eating or drinking water. Since this method is quite effective, many people have picked it up. The Vietnamese people rowing the boats by feet have become popular and a real attraction of the Ninh Binh Province.

2.  Invest in the local economy

Many locals rely on tourism as their main source of income, including the ones who row the boats in Tam Coc. By taking a boat tour, you basically help the local people have a better life. Don’t forget to leave a tip at the end – those people are working really hard!

Giving your rowers money as a tip will definitely help them more than buying him a drink. If you are wondering how much you should tip him, I would say that anything between 20,000 VND and 40,000 VND/person would be great. However, you can tip any sum of money you want.

3.  Enjoy the best views in Ninh Binh

Ninh Binh is well known for its spectacular views with mountains popping out of the rice fields. Tam Coc Tours will allow you to experience all that while taking a relaxing boat ride. At about the middle of the boat ride, you will have the chance to admire the Hang Mua Peak from a different perspective.  Also, if you are lucky enough you will see pigs swimming in the river (no, I am not kidding). Paddle the rowing boat in Tam Coc: If you like to take the experience for rowing boat as locals. Please tell us tour guide our tour guide will tell the boatman, give you the paddle to take the experience of driving boat trip.
