Print

Up to 70 percent of the 1,300 hotel rooms in Tam Dao in northern Vinh Phuc province have been booked by international and domestic tourists, although there is still nearly one week to go before the five-day national holiday from April 27 to May 1.

This is good news for the Vinh Phuc tourism industry as it had been concerned that the economic crisis and rise in the price of petrol would have an effect on tourist numbers.

Tran Van Quang, Director of the province’s Culture, Sports and Tourism Department, said that some travel agencies in the locality have worked with hotels, restaurants and airlines to offer reasonable prices to tourists, along with promotion programmes to help attract more visitors.

Last month, the province organised a culture-tourism week to promote its images and tourism potential, Quang added.

Tam Dao’s 77 hotels can cater for 2,700 guests per night.

In the first quarter of 2013, 750,300 tourists (13,200 foreigners and 737,100 domestic tourists) visited Vinh Phuc province, helping generate 280 billion VND for its tourism industry.

Tam Dao, a range of mountains located in three north-eastern provinces of Vinh Phuc, Thai Nguyen and Tuyen Quang, is famous for its beautiful natural scenery, mild climate, diverse flora and fauna, and various cultural-historical sites.

The name “Tam Dao”, meaning “three islands”, describes the natural beauty of the area’s three mountains that appear as a trio of islands in a sea of cloud.

In addition to some well-known tourist destinations including Tay Thien Temple, Tam Dao National Park and Dai Lai Lake, visitors can now discover the forests or visit Xa Huong Lake and Bear Rescue Centre in the region.-VNA
