The entrance to the temple at the lake is really beuatiful. We went and looked at the temple etc. It's very nice but not worth to drive hours to see. But if you stay in Tam Coc it's definitely worth to visit. You can cycle there from Tam Coc town. Instead to walk through the gate to see the temple you can walk around the lake on the right side and then climb up the hill. You end up between hills in a very beautiful landscape, most likely alone as people don't go that way.

Motorcycle scam in front of the entrance where they ask for ridiculous amounts of money to park your bike…

also wasn’t allowed in because i wore shorts, wouldn’t have been a problem if we hadn’t witnessed a whole other group of tourists all in shorts and sleeveless t-shirts making pictures just stroll on by…

Entrance was nice.

The pagoda is an easy walk from the centre of Ninh Binh, up some steep stairs. Enter over a small bridge through a nice gate, then proceed to the first 2 temples ; the third one is tucked behind the second. A pleasant walk and sightseeing after a day exploring the fields and waterways.

It is quite and gorgeous. There are 3 temples in Bich Dong Pagoda ( Low, Middle, High) You can easily find a way to the Low and Middle one. The third one, however, is hidden behind the middle temple. You need to find a way to Dark Cave, which is next to the Middle Temple (it quite hard to notice it) . Go along the dark cave until you reach the end of the road. Trust me, you won't regret. I think it really cool and worth it. Visit here if you have time. It Free by the way.

There is a small alley beside the small temple in the second picture which will lead you to a hidden temple in the cave. I found it really cool and it also will lead you to another temple.

The place is beautiful, the stairs are sometimes scary but it's worth it. I was lucky to be alone there, usually, it's quite croudy

Bich Dong is worth going to if you have ample time in Ninh Binh but if you are short on time stick to the main attractions.
Overall the entrance is very cool and worth a few photos but the pagado itself is under whelming. The views are ok considering the walk up is slighly strenuous and time consuming.

Very unadorned and humble pagoda that still has a monk living in/working from it. Fascinating peep into their everyday life, slightly spoilt by the people in your face selling highly over priced items

Was alright. Apparently you can leave your bikes anywhere but we chose to leave them at the entrance and pay 10k per bike. Don’t try and ride them over the bridge into the pagoda... like some stupid tourists tried to do 🙄
It’s all a bit run down but has some nice views. You can walk around the back and up some steps for a good view. Be respectful and if it says don’t wear shorts in the temple DON’T WEAR SHORTS. It might not be religious to you but be respectful. So many people aren’t it’s disgraceful.
