Tam Dao, a small mountainous town in the northern province of Vinh Phuc, just 70km from Hanoi, has made it an attractive destination for visitors on weekends and holidays thanks to its cool weather throughout the year like Da Lat and Sa Pa.

Domestic and foreign visitors head to Tam Dao, at 1,000m high, mostly on weekends, solo or in groups, on sunny or chilly days. Although the town is small, there are plenty of options for tourists rushing here to escape the usual busy city life.    

Young newlyweds can choose spots to take wedding photos, since Tam Dao offers an ancient stone church, silver waterfalls, jungles, pagodas, sunsets and poetic overcast vistas. Visitors can stay at small mansions, looking down the valley from their perch at one of the resorts.  

Others can savour coffee at Windy Inn, famous for its restless wind blowing all day and night.

The ancient stone church is a common place to take pictures thanks to its European architecture style, which appears romantic when shrouded in fog. Especially, the vine-covered walls add to the mysterious fairy tale atmosphere here.

Climbing to Tam Dao is an unforgettable experience. The place is where many athletes chose to practise climbing. Many also come here to enjoy the winter stir-fried chayote bud, a specialty of the town.

If you are in search of a short weekend away, or simply wish to be far from the maddening city crowds, then throw your stress away and head to Tam Dao.
