Located inside the Tràng An Landscape Complex, which was listed as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO on June 23, 2014, the Tam Cốc-Bích Động tourism site has one of the most scenic rice fields in Việt Nam, 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 Ngô Đồng river, zigzagging its way through karst mountains and caves. Besides aesthetics and geological value, Tam Cốc-Bích Động has a lot of cultural values too. It guards the history of the Hoa Lư ancient imperial capital, which was chosen by various kings during the Đinh, early Lê and beginning of Lý 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 Đại Cồ Việt State (968-2018). It provides a platform to showcase the province’s tourism products. — VNS
