Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

If you have some spare time, it was worth a look. Not too many other shops around Nin Bin. We bought a few things and had a walk around. Pictured below is the local bike shop doing a full rebuild on the footpath.

Certainly worth a stroll. Trip adviser has it wrongly located - it is about the same level on the map horizontally but is right by the river - follow either of the main streets and you cannot miss it. I just wandered and did not try to buy anything. Don’t worry about losing your sense of direction it’s not that big, and it’s certainly not claustrophobic - aisles are big enough for scooters to pass and they do. Be aware the Vietnamese desire for meat and fish as fresh as it could be means you will encounter what happens before we in the West get our cellophane packaged lumps of dead flesh (I am vegan). People are either friendly or ignore you - no pushy selling or pressure witnessed.

If you're interested in authenticity this is the place. The stacks of pearled dry fine vermicelli in several colours alone is worth the visit. Heaping mounds of every kind of rice and legume, housewares, handmade knives and machetes, go on and on through cool dim rows until you are lost somewhere on the other side and find endless rows of stunning produce, fruits, herbs, garlic. You will be the only tourist. Don't pay the asking price: the word will get around before you do and there will be a trail of good natured mocking laughter wherever you walk.

The Rong Market is a great place to get lost and take photos if you're in Ninh Binh and you have a couple of hours to spare. There are several areas (meat, fish, veggies, shoes, clothes...) and people just sell and buy. And there aren't many tourists, so, it's a good place to get a taste of the local culture.

If anyone want to buy fishing equipment this market has cheap second hand and new machines and rods and variety of hooks and almost all accessories for fresh water fishing I recommend go for second hand as those are more reliable than the new ones.

Rent a bicycle and take a 10 minute ride thru the countryside from Tao Coc dock. Not the usual SE Asian market, but actually what the locals shoppe and buy daily. Food, flowers, clothing, shoes etc...whatever the villagers need. Have a cool drink and observe before biking back.

We hired push bikes from our hotel (4.00 per day) and rode to the market, you really need to see the goods , there are many many things for sale and you really should skip parts of this market if you have a weak stomach as some things the locals eat can be very confronting to us. The market runs along a main street but the market itself can be a labyrinth so make sure you pay attention to which way you turn or you can get lost easily. People aren't pushy to sell you anything but once you take there photo or a photo of there wares , some expect payment .

Cho Rong is a real Vietnamese market and an authentic experience. You won't find any counterfeit shirts or sunglasses here because this is the real Viet Nam. Except for the few ladies carving pineapples no one is trying to lure you into their store or sell you souvenirs that you don't need. People selling fresh produce and everyday household items like pots and brooms in masses. One part even sells alive seafood and poultry (chicken, ducks, pidgeons...) that is being butchered at the market on your request. After you visited this market you realize what a real Vietnamese market is, that doesn't try to sell any fake bags and shirts to tourists.
If you are in tp. Ninh Binh make sure you give it a try. Even though you won't be able to buy any souvenirs or clothes from there you can still stroll around, soak up the atmosphere and enjoy a nice noodle soup.
