The first location of the delegation is Trang An landscapes, 7 km northwest of Ninh Binh city, 96 km south of Hanoi. Trang An complex is one of the most beautiful and charming karst region in Vietnam and also in the world. You would find no place that have such thick forest floor covered by imposing conical towers of 200 meters height, with self-contained hollows, surrounded by array of mountains, swamps connected thoroughly via the underground river system. The harmonization of the mountain, the river, the forests and the sky of Trang An would create a vivid natural land, make it become a mysterious wonder.
