Ninh Binh is located south of the Northern Delta, between the Red and Ma Rivers. It is bordered by Nam Dinh, Ha Nam, Hoa Binh, and Thanh Hoa provinces. The population is made up of 23 ethnic communities, among which the Kinh account for more than 98%. The rest of the population consists of the Muong, Tay, Nung, Tai, Hoa, and Dao ethnic groups.

The sub delta climate, with an annual average temperature of 23C, is divided into two seasons: the dry season from November to April, and the rainy season from May to October.

The old city of Ninh Binh is one of many famous historic sites in Vietnam. Other sites in this area include Hoa Lu Citadel, Nhat Tu Pagoda, and Can Linh Pagoda.

From Hanoi to Ninh Binh province is 93 km on National Highway 1. The province is endowed with picturesque scenery. The provincial town of Ninh Binh has diverse landscapes because of its proximity to the mountains of Non Nuoc and Canh Dieu. It also has the Day River and the Van Sang River running through the town.
