Van Long Natural Reserve

Van Long Natural Reserve, known as the "Preserved Nature Area" of Ninh Binh, offers wonderful views of landscapes and rural life. 

Compared to Tam Coc and Trang An which are more popular tourist attractions, Van Long is much more primitive and completely untouched. Rivers, mountains, grottoes, rice paddies, old houses, friendly locals, tiny-bamboo boat riding... all contribute to make Van Long a must-see for the travelers. 

Tourists who come to admire the reserve will have the opportunity to view rich flora and fauna, particularly the rarely-seen silver langur, within the most bio-diversified wetland in Vietnam, according to international and national research findings. Van Long Natural Reserve is within walking distance from Emeralda Resort Ninh Binh.
