Ninh Binh can be considered as a bridge linking Northern provinces with Southern ones and it is located on the trafic life-line including National Highway 1A and trans-Vietnam railway.

Ninh Binh is located close to the key economic areas of the North, including Hanoi, Hai Phong, Quang Ninh. Therefore, its development will form a new growth triangle of Hanoi - Hai Phong - Quang Ninh - Ninh Binh through National Highways 1A, 18, 10 and 2 important airports of Noi Bai and Cat Bi, sea Port and river Port systems meeting demand for passenger tranport with different means within the 100 km radius.

Ninh Binh is located in the tropics and monsoon area affected by coastal climate. Every year, Ninh Binh receives a big mount of solar radiation with high total radiation and radiation balance (equivalent to 110 - 120 Kcal/cm2/year and 87.2Kcal/cm2/year ), which creates a high temperature degree with the average temperature of 2307C and the total annual working heat at about 8,5000C. In winter, the temperature degree is low cold and dry weather. In summer, it is Southwest monsoon causing much rain. the major part of Ninh Binh is delta with few hills and mountains, so the climate is varied according to the territories.

The river density in Ninh Binh is at medium rate of around 0.6 - 0.9 km/km2. Most rivers flow in the Northwest - Southeast direction and into the sea through Day river mouth. In addition, Hoang Long River is an estuary of Day River and other rivers. In Ninh Binh, there are many lakes and lagoons namely Dam Cut and Dong Thai lake range with spectacular scenery, and Kenh Ga and Ky Phu spas.

Ninh Binh's hydrography has many advantages, creating the favourable conditions for development of agriculture with variety of crops and development of tourism and industry.

The total area of natural land in Ninh Binh is 143, 300 ha with various kinds of land including raised and un-raised alluvion land (in the coastal plain) favourable for raising aquatic products and growing industrial crops; the poor and aluminous alluvion land (in the hollow delta ) suitable for intensive cultivation of rice and farm produces; the peralitic land (in semi- hill and mountain areas) suitable for developing fruit - tree, industrial crops and medicinal plant.

Out of the total natural tand area, agricultural land accounts for the largest proportion of 66,900 hectares, making up 46.5% of the natural land area, forestry land 19,800 ha, accounting for 14%; specific-use land area 15,500ha, accounting for 11%; residential land area is 5,000ha, constituting and un-used land 36,000ha, at 24,5%.
