Ninh Bình is considered the origin of Vietnam

Ninh Bình, situated south of Hanoi in Northern Vietnam, holds great significance as the birthplace of Vietnam. This city has witnessed the historical progression of Vietnam since its early days. From 968 to 1010, Ninh Bình served as the capital for three dynasties (Đinh, Lê, and Lý), known as the Hoa Lư capital. Today, Ninh Bình is home to two temples dedicated to these revered emperors.

The landscape of Ninh Bình is truly a heavenly gift, surpassing all expectations.! The green river of Ngô Đồng meanders around the vast mountain giving us an excellent point of view to see how wonderful nature is. It's no wonder that the production team of Kong: Skull Island was captivated by this stunning beauty and chose Ninh Bình as the main backdrop for the movie.
