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
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.
