What a waste of time and effort. There is no floating village or hot springs. The once floating village has been replaced with a series of concrete islands around the small mountains, connected by cheap nasty looking metal bridges. All the area is under construction. There's not much to see there anymore. The concrete islands are now surrounded by rice fields. There is no longer any boat tours. All very disappointing. The place didn't even warrant me taking any pictures, it's that uninspiring.

We were surprised about the lack of knowledge of the place from the hotel staff or driver, but the information I had read sounded great and... we really wanted hot springs!!! We also got ripped of by a boat operator like in other reviews I wish I had read before going. There's nothing to see. The floating village is gone (couldn't figure out why) or inexistent. The hot springs are closed. What they do show you to justify the money you pay for the motorboat is a little pagoda? with hot spring water, very hot, not a place where you can bathe. There are many beautiful places around Ninh Binh; unless you have a specific interest in this non-floating village, forget it.

there is nothing to see here at the moment and we got ripped off by a boat operator who literally took us 300 yards to see where the hot spring used to be and where the development is starting - we got to feel the hot water though. We thought we had negotiated a half hour tour of the village but insted went straight back. Woulnt advise independent travel here. The village isnt floating - instead its built for flooding

It was nice to putter along the river in a motor boat and view the pagoda and big spout that stuck out of the river and supplied boiling hot water (it was almost too hot to wash my feet). You go through a sweet village but there is little of note to see other than some nice scenery.
