Hi everyone,

I have an article introducing a famous destination. But my vocab and grammar is not good at all.

Pls, help me fix these problems. Thanks!


Tam Coc – Bich Dong, a part of Trang An scenic landscape complex, is considered as the most attractive tourist destination in Ninh Binh Province, known for its famous name likes “Halong bay on land” or “the second most beautiful cave in Southern country”.


Tam Coc is a combination of two distinct destinations: Tam Coc, a flooded cave karst system and Bich Dong, a series of mountain pagodas.


Tam Coc includes three caves which are created by Ngo Dong River that pierces through the mountain. It is an ancient tourist destination, so all services are quite regulated and there is no tourist solicitation phenomenon. The journey of Tam Coc discovery is started from Dinh Cac boat station. The ferryman takes us going along flexuous Ngo Dong River, with its both sides are golden rice paddy fields. On the boat, tourists can see amazing mountain cliffs, observe aquatic species fluttering under the river and watch the storks on the grass…


Sailing along the river, we will come to three caves with different names. Ca cave is 127m in length, passing through a big mountain with many limestones in various forms; the mouth of the cave’s width is over 20 m. Hai cave is nearly 1 km away from Ca cave with a length of 60 m. Ba cave is 50 m long. Its ceiling is like a stone arch and lower than the others.


After visiting Tam Coc, you can visit Bich Dong Pagoda. It is an ancient temple leaning on the mountain and has its own featured Asian-style. In 1773, when going on patrol with Lord Trinh Sam, Prime Minister Nguyen Nghiem (father of great poet Nguyen Du), saw that the cave was both beautiful and magnificent and presented “the second most beautiful cave in Southern country” for it, behind Huong Tich cave” “the most beautiful cave in Southern” conferred by Trinh Sam.


The pagoda inside the cave was built in the style of “三” which is meaning “three” in the Chinese word. It includes three separate pagodas: Ha Pagoda, Trung Pagoda, and Thuong Pagoda. Ha Pagoda consists of two floors with eight curved roofs. It has five rooms with huge wooden and stone pillars. They are made of one whole block stone and all of them are more than 4 m high. From Ha pagoda, you must go upstair 120 steps to reach Trung pagoda. It is a unique one with half open-cast and half attached to the cave. Finally, Thuong pagoda is on the top of the mountain, worships Avalokitesvara Bodhisattva. It has 2 shrines on either side: Tho Dia shrine on the right and Son Than on the left. Next to the pagoda is a water tank called: “Cam Lo water tank” of Bodhisattva.


When standing inside Thuong pagoda’s campus, visitors can see the panorama of Ngu Mon rice paddy fields and cover the whole beautiful scene of Bich Dong, not only its beautiful landscapes but also its cultural-architectural art, which has the meaning of a historic site in Ninh Binh.
