Mua Cave / Hang Mua

Mua Cave is one of the key visiting spots in Trang An ( Halong Bay on the land) in the Ninh Binh province in Vietnam.  It is my most favourite place during my trip in Vietnam. The views up the 500 steps are stunning.  The sights over Tam Coc and the landscape of Ninh Binh are gorgeous. Green fields, river and mountains compose harmony and beauty.

It is about 150 kilometres from the famous bay. Hundreds of islands form a natural wonder is another  impressive landscape but much less known.
