VINH PHUC (VNS)— Tam Dao officially launched a new free wifi service yesterday in a bid to lure more tourists to the beautiful but relatively unknown mountain resort near Ha Noi.
The Department of Information and Communications in Vinh Phuc Province confirmed that over VND7.8 billion (US$366,600) had been spent on the project, which would allow visitors and local people to enjoy free access to the internet until 2019.
Due to the mountainous terrain, wi-fi hotspots were placed in hotels and high buildings in the centre of Tam Dao.
Tam Dao has followed in the footsteps of Da Nang, Hoi An, Hue and Ha Long to become the fifth tourist destination to provide free wifi in Viet Nam. The project aims to help visitors discover more about the people and culture of the region.
Tam Dao is located in Tam Duong District, 86km from the capital. — VNS
