Themed “Yellow Rice Season in Tam Coc-Trang An”, the week will be packed with various activities, such as business fairs, weaving of traditional lace, traditional cuisine fairs, folk music and water puppetry shows.

The Tourism Week will conclude on June 16.

Located inside the Trang An Landscape Complex, which was listed as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO on June 23, 2014, the Tam Coc-Bich Dong tourism site has one of the most scenic rice fields in Vietnam, with a romantic waterway and karst mountains.

The site hosts various tourism forms, including eco-tourism, spiritual tourism as well as culture and community-based tourism.

June is an impressive month at the site, with carpets of yellow rice fields stretched along the banks of Ngo Dong river, zigzagging its way through karst mountains and caves. Besides aesthetics and geological value, Tam Coc-Bich Dong has a lot of cultural values too.

It guards the history of the Hoa Lu ancient imperial capital, which was chosen by various kings during the Dinh, early Le and beginning of Ly reigns between 968-1009 as well as by primitive humans thousands of years ago.

The Tourism Week is the first activity of its kind in the framework of a programme celebrating the 1,050th anniversary of Dai Co Viet State (968-2018). It provides a platform to showcase the province’s tourism products.
