Touring Binh Dinh Province and Marble Mountain in Vietnam.

in hive-127788 •  last month  (edited)

Binh Dinh is a province on the southern central coast region of Vietnam it is a province that attracts many tourist because of it's huge green lush mountains , hills and beautiful green lowlands also has great beaches and there culture is something to experience.




In Binh Dinh Province there is a lot of beautiful green lush lowlands and rice paddy fields which have bicycle paths leading you to little rivers , streams and the mountains we decided to rent bikes with a tour group for a day tour with a few extra activities involved.




This is a ceremony that a rice farmer in Vietnam will do with his Buffalo praying for a good years harvest.


The tour included riding through some rice paddy fields enjoying the sceneries of nature around us also the tour guide was explaining to us how the rice was grown and harvest and the history of the province.





The tour also included going to the Marble Mountains so after riding for about 15 km through all these beautiful rice paddy fields we got to the other side and are put on to these wooden boats to take us across to see the marble mountains.





Once reaching our destination down river which was only like a 30 minutes boat ride by these powerful women foot peddling these row boats they definitely have some built up calf muscles we stop for some lunch before heading into the caves of the mountain marble.





After an amazing lunch of tasty corn and bbq chicken with seafood we headed of to the Marble Mountains they are made up of a cluster of five hills made from limestone and marble and have caves in the mountains that you can climb up into pretty rough steps climbing up but intriguing to get inside.




Once in the mountain caves you will find some amazing religious marble sculptures and even bullet holes within the caves from the Vietnam war with America were the U.S troops use to hide and relax but were fired upon by the Vietnam soldiers.





The Marble Mountains came to be according to ancient folklore, a dragon emerged from the water on Non Nuoc Beach and laid an egg. A thousand days and a thousand nights followed before the egg hatched, and out stepped a beautiful girl. The fragments of the shell were left on the beach and eventually grew into the five mystical Marble Mountains.source





The Temple grounds and gardens were just fascinating revolving around Vietnamese , Japanese and Chinese architecture and sculpture and done in colorful polished marble showing the most color effect. This was really a highlight of my tour in Binh Dinh seeing these marble temples really blow my mind out thinking about the amount of hours gone into this incredible masterpiece was unimaginable.

Looks beautiful and serene ,would love to visit sometime, the caves look like a wonderful place to explore too.

Thank you @jess-ica was a beautiful refreshing place to visit and hope you do get there some day 🌞

I hope so too

You never know what the future brings live the dream 😊

I’ll try

Amazing cycling adventure seeing local life as it is, then exquisite time exploring the mountains that keep secrets of the past.

Marble temples would most definitely be a highlight in stunning architecture surrounded by ponds with beautiful lily pads and blooms.

Thanks for sharing this, found on #amazingnature

Thank you @joanstewart it really was a adventure done at slow pace and taking all the beauty in , i would go back there in a heartbeat and do it all over again such a amazing country full of beautiful nature surrounding you 😊

There are some regions with strife many never venture to, beauty hidden within, always a pity when history is lost or destroyed.

This is true the history and the beauty is something i always look for when i am traveling i love seeing as much as i can before it is lost or destroyed 👍

Wow! This is a beautiful post of Vietnam! 😍 I never thought Vietnam could be this beautiful. Thank you for sharing this with us.

Is this a pre-COVID adventure? Tour across the rice paddies amazes me! Hahaha! I cannot imagine it much, because we also have rice fields here but we don't cross it using boats. Hehehe. Is it a river between rice paddies?

I enjoyed this a lot! Thank you so much! 😍

Thank you @gingbabida i found Vietnam to be a very green healthy country with lots of beauty and green rice paddies and yes this was a river running along side the paddy fields i suppose that's why they looked so green and healthy.

This trip was over a year ago and looking forward to another trip there when all this covid-19 scenario is over 😊
