Hanoi (VNA) – The Prime Minister has recently approved several tasks regarding the master plan on the Nui Coc Lake national tourism site in the northern province of Thai Nguyen towards 2030. 

The master plan aims to build a major ecological and resort area in the country with synchronous and modern infrastructure, contributing to promoting socio-economic development in the northern mountainous and mid-land region and Thai Nguyen in particular. 

It will also help tap existing advantages such as the ecological system of lakes, islands, protection forests, and the Tan Cuong tea growing area to develop tourism effectively and sustainably.

As planned, the national tourism site will lie in the communes of Phuc Xuan, Phuc Triu, and Tan Cuong in Thai Nguyen city; the communes of Tan Thai, Binh Thuan, Luc Ba, Van Tho, Quan Chu, and Quan Chu township in Dai Tu district; and Phuc Tan commune in Pho Yen town. 

Nui Coc Lake, covering 25 sq.km of surface water, took shape after a dam was built on the Cong River, a tributary of the Cau River, in 1973. It is also a well-known tourist destination in Thai Nguyen province.–VNA
