Hotels in Ninh Binh
When coming to Ninh Binh to play, there will usually be 2 choices: 1 is in the city, 2 is near tourist attractions.
Last time I went to Ninh Binh. I choose according to my feelings in the city and go to all tourist attractions at least 8km from my accommodation (like going on a trip). If I travel, I will choose to stay at a homestay for it to chill and go out more convenient. In the city to have coffee at night, but in reality, there is nothing, so I still recommend staying near tourist areas.
What to eat in Ninh Binh?
With determination to enjoy Ninh Binh specialties. I asked the homestay owner and was advised to have burnt rice and goat meat. I heard that I was already in love, and right next to my homestay, there is a Thang Long restaurant. With the motto to go where the specialty cup goes, the burnt rice and goat meat dishes cannot be ignored. Admittedly a specialty, it’s already delicious to eat cooked rice in a bag, let alone other things. Here, eat cooked rice with extra sauce to make it indescribably delicious. When I asked, I only knew that the sauce had pork heart and kidney stir-fried with vegetables, onions, carrots, tomatoes, and mushrooms. And the goat meat dish can not be faulted. Maybe it can’t be described in words, if you have the opportunity to visit Ninh Binh, remember to try these 2 specialties.
Going with her sister decided not to eat goat meat because goat meat stinks. But when I went to the Three-door restaurant to eat goat meat with lemon, I ate all of a plate by myself and complimented it on delicious. So you can come and eat here. The shop is near Trang An area, right. Located in the alley but the food is delicious and reasonably priced. The staff is also quick and friendly. In general, this is a very good place to eat.
At this restaurant, I read a review on Facebook so I went to try it. Because around Trang An area, I only see goats and goats, but I am afraid of chopping and not being delicious, so I still choose to eat according to the review. Luckily it’s delicious.
