Came here while visiting Ninh Binh. The viewpoint cost 100000 dong to visit, and there is no shortage of visitors here. We happened to come a sunset which wasn't planned but a nice bonus. There are two view points and both have lots of people...More

Hello 957davidh, If you are in normal physical condition it’ll probably take you 30-40 min to climb all stairs, rest a bit while admiring the views (360 degrees) and walk den again. Hope this helps! Have fun. Patrick
