Photo of Entry:  Visiting the Fairy Lake in Ha Tay Province

Tien Sa Lake, located about 60 kilometers from Hanoi at the base of Tan Vien Mountain, is an ideal destination for a relaxing weekend in the fresh air and quiet atmosphere, which is hard to find in the city.  There is much to see around this lake where, according to local legend, a fairy (tien) descended to earth and took a bath.

At  65-400 meters above sea level, the eco-tourism site in Tien Sa Lake has a total area of 150 hectares including 120 hectares of forest and 20 hectares of water, and the green forest covering  part of the mountain and surrounding the lake has created a cool, pleasant and romantic atmosphere. 


Young visitors can explore the lake by boat, while others may prefer a leisurely walk around the hills or sitting in the shade of a tree to read a book.  The clear water lake is also  ideal for fishing from the floating houses or the bank under the willows.  


In the summer time, tourists enjoy bathing in Nhi Long waterfall nearby or playing at the water park, which has a total area of 3,000 square meters with three pools, nine slides and a sport area of two hectares suitable for many kinds of sports such as tennis, football, volleyball and badminton. A playground has also been set up in an area of 2,500 square meters with games such as electric cars and planes, and children can hardly resist visiting the troupe of monkeys being raised there.


Overnight accommodation is available in the houses on stilts  surrounding the lake for VND100,000 to VND150,000 per room per night, or at Vien Son Hotel for VND200,000 to VND300,000 per night.   The hotel  is suitable for business meetings and company retreats, and the hotel restaurant can serve up to 150 guests with the specialties of this area, including wild pig cooked in a variety of ways.


At night, visitors can sit around a fire and mingle with other guests, or sing and dance with the Mong and Dao ethnic men and women while enjoying rural dishes such as baked sweet potato, corn and grilled meat.
