This is a new cooperation tourism product between Hanoi and Phu Tho being conducted by the Phu Tho Provincial Department of Culture, Sports and Tourism and the Hanoi Travel Association.

The first tour featured over 90 participants, including staff from travel agencies under the VGreen Club of the Hanoi Travel Association along with tourists.

They departed from the National Museum of History (Hanoi) at 1:00 pm and visited many famous destinations in Phu Tho such as Lang Suong Temple, tea hills, the old Tam Giang Temple, Bach Hac River, and the place where Lac Long Quan and Au Co divided 50 of their children to the forest and 50 to the sea according to the legend.

The highlight of this new tourism product is the night tour at Hung Kings Temple at 9 pm. Accordingly, visitors have the chance to admire many national treasures as well as conduct incense offering at the major temples.

The caravan tourism is expected to become a trend during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic as well as to contribute to enhance the linkage in tourism between Hanoi and Phu Tho.

The tour was also the opening event in a series of cultural, sport and tourism activities during the 2021 Hung Kings Temple Festival.
