Tourists and businesspeople alike will find countless things to do in Viet Tri, depending on their interests and taste for adventure.
For casual visitors, there are plenty of cultural and natural attractions to discover, including the walking street at the heart of the city, just 5 minutes away from the hotel. Hung Vuong Temple is another nearby cultural highlight, and a visit here is one of the most popular things to do in Viet Tri for foreigners. To gain a deeper insight into daily life in the region, a journey to Lam Thao trade village is another essential experience.
Natural highlights in and around Viet Tri include Hang Lang cave and Van Mo waterfall, each of which brings out the timeless beauty in the Vietnamese landscape.
