A bird-eye view on Tam Cốc during rice harvest season in Ninh Binh. The rice field is scattered in the flat land among the hills and cave karst system. It is famous for its boat ride while enjoying the scenery as seen in this card. Along with several sites within Ninh Bình Province, it is part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site listed under the name "Trang An Landscape Complex." Thanks Jobbo for another amazing card sent while travelling.

A 10500d Year of the Monkey stamp was used. The blue-color postmark is rather faint. It was sent from Ha Noi ??? with postcode 100920 on day of 18. The month and year are not legible.
