Hong Thai Communal House in Tan Trao site

The Tan Trao historical site, a Special National Relic in the northern mountainous province of Tuyen Quang, has received 400,000 visitors so far this year.

The site has reported an average of 4,000 visitors on peak days, including the occasion of the 69th anniversary of the August Revolution's victory (August 19).

It expects to welcome 650,000 arrivals this year.

Tan Trao is situated in Son Duong District, 41km from the centre of Tuyen Quang Town toward the north-west, about 200km from Ha Noi. It was once the home of Uncle Ho along with the central agencies in the pre-insurrection period and in the war against the French. It is the site of many historic events leading up to the August Revolution and victory. — VNS
