Ninh Binh overview
Ninh Binh, situated in Vietnam’s Red River Delta, has long been known for its stunning scenery, renowned heritages, and friendly locals. It is regarded as a miniature version of Vietnam.
Ninh Binh is Vietnam’s southernmost entrance to the North and Red River Delta. The city was the capital of Vietnam in the X century, and a significant strategic field during the Dinh, Tien Le, Ly, Tran, and Tay Son dynasties. Ninh Binh maintains a rich and varied tourism opportunity due to its prime position in terms of transportation, landscape, history, and community. It is regarded as a miniature version of Vietnam.
Ninh Binh is located on the frontier of three geological regions: the Northwest, the Red River Delta, and the North Central Coast. The province is bordered to the north by Hoa Binh, to the east by Nam Dinh and Day Canal, to the west by Thanh Hoa, and to the southeast by the Gulf of Tonkin. Ninh Binh, the province base, is about 93 kilometers south of Hanoi.
Ninh Binh has three different types of terrain. The mountainous area in the northwest comprises the districts of Nho Quan, Gia Vien, Hoa Lu, and Tam Diep. The coastal area in the southeast contains the districts of Kim Son and Yen Khanh. The transition delta alternates between the two regions described above. Ninh Binh has an 18-kilometer-long coastline. UNESCO has designated Ninh Binh’s coastal and marine area as a world biosphere reserve.
Climate: Ninh Binh has a subtropical climate, with hot and humid summers from May to September and cool and dry winters from November to March; April and October are called spring and autumn. Ninh Binh has a relatively warm atmosphere. The surface temperature is 23.5 degrees Celsius.
Ninh Binh city was formerly Van Sang town in Thanh Hoa, with Dai Nang village as its base. According to geographic sources, the citadel of Ninh Binh was constructed with very sturdy bricks during the Nguyen Dynasty, with the Middlle Gate in the east, the Left Gate in the west, and the Right Gate in the north.
During the French colonial era, the French built the citadel and transformed it into a somewhat bustling metropolis in the north of North Delta, establishing it as a county of Ninh Binh province. As a result, many new communities were developed, including Pesit Street, Cha Sau (Father Sau) Street, Nha Tho (Church) Street, Cau Lim Street, Gia Nua Street, and many two-story houses. However, as part of the French resistance, Ninh Binh city lost most of its homes, avenues, and offices in order to join the resistance.
The city was restored after the return of stability. As a result, Ninh Binh City is now a youthful city with natural landscapes resembling a futuristic metropolis.
