Tam Coc is located in Trang An Scenic Landscape Complex which was recognized by UNESCO as a mixed natural and cultural property. Tam Coc is one of the most favorite spots in Ninh Binh thanks to its towering outcrops sweeping up from serene rice paddies. Bich Dong Pagoda is an important religious place for the locals in the region. It comprises three structures: Ha (Low), Trung (Middle), and Thuong (Upper) pagodas in ascending order at the side of a rocky mountain. It is nice for a hike up to visit the three structures. Inside each pagoda, looming statues and the smoke of burning incense create an otherworldly atmosphere. From the top, there are some incredible views of the countryside.
