Thôn Hải Nham, Hoa Lư, Ninh Bình, Vietnam
Park is very nice and not do many people go here. Entry fee is 100k and we parked right outside the park to avoid any additional charges. They are still building the park. Currently there are 2 caves, Mermaid inside and another on the way up to the park. Additionally the are gardens, flowers and plants. Nice accommodation, some grocery. Bur the main are the birds, we saw several storks here. The map you see on the ticket does not really reflect the reality, but with some imagination and not opened places, you get the point.
Extremely impressed with this beautiful park! Quiet, peaceful and tranquil, with not many visitors (we only saw a handful of people in the park). It looks new and nicely decorated. The flowers were beautiful. We did not see that many birds in the day, but there’re lots of butterflies. You can ride your bicycle around the grounds, which is a great way to see every section of the park. Highly recommended
I wish we had more time to spend here. We were only able to spend about an hour and a quarter and you really need two hours or more of you want to do any of the caves as well. Go late in the day, we arrived at 5 and left just after 6 pm and the birds were just starting to come around. Cool garden as well.
We went in the afternoon between 3-4 as that's when the birds are meant to flock in. We saw wallowing buffalo and beautiful butterflies, but not a single bird. Not one. The place has a theme park vibe. Beautifully manicured in places...it was just not what we were expecting.
The nature walk was incredible with glimpses of beautiful landscape before you reach the end of the road. The only reason I'm rating this 4 stars is because of how low the cave was. I'm 6'3 so it was damn well impossible for me to walk on a slippery wooden path which was very lengthy. Would definitely have injured myself if I had continued! I took 10 steps before bashing my head on the cave ceiling (whilst crouching). My suggestion would be to have a sit-down transport cart which rides through the cave rather than having to walk :) Other than that, the experience was incredible with a lot of hiking and sightseeing
