Yen Tu Spring festival kicks off in Quang Ninh province

The Yen Tu Spring Festival was launched on February 25 (the 10th day of the Lunar New Year), in Uong Bi city, the northern province of Quang Ninh, starting the National Tourism Year hosted by the locality.

The festival included the opening ceremony, Cherry Blossom and Yen Tu yellow apricot blossom festival and Hang Son Pagoda Festival.

In preparation for the festival, infrastructure in the Yen Tu spiritual tourism site has been improved, including the upgrade of the road to Yen Tu relic site and the construction of a new cable car system to prevent traffic congestion.

The province has also worked to complete the first phase of the Yen Tu festival tourism service centre, which features Truc Lam palace, a Zen village, a pilgrimage village and the King monk Tran Nhan Tong museum.

Last year, Yen Tu relic site lured about 1.5 million visitors. This year, the province expected to welcome 2 million visitors.

Yen Tu Mountain is located about 50 kilometers from Ha Long City. The area has awe-inspiring scenery, surrounded by ancient pagodas and hermitages.
