Summer is always an opportunity for many families or groups of “crazy feet” friends to have the opportunity to travel here and there. But with the complicated developments of Covid-19, your summer 2021 will seem to pass without any “hiding from the sun”. Ba Vi, Tam Dao or Pu Luong are all places right next to Hanoi and you only need to spend 2 weekends to “change the wind” without worrying about moving too much.
1. Pu Luong
As an emerging name in the last few years, but every time it is mentioned Pu Luong, many travel devotees are constantly admiring. Located in Pu Luong nature reserve of Ba Thuoc and Quan Hoa districts, Thanh Hoa, Pu Luong stands out for its pristine and peaceful beauty.
When coming to Pu Luong at this time, you will enjoy the fresh and cool air because Pu Luong belongs to the lowland limestone mountains with many tropical forests and the population is still quite sparse. If Hanoi is too hot and bustling, Pu Luong will make you fall in love with the wild mountains and the peaceful life of the ethnic minorities here.
Coming to Pu Luong, you can visit some places such as: Kho Muong village, Bat cave, Hieu village, Hieu waterfall… and enjoy attractive specialties such as: Co Lung duck, Lam rice, hill chicken, grilled stream fish , bitter bamboo shoots…
2. Ba Vi
Located just 50 km west of Hanoi, you can easily reach Ba Vi after about 2 hours by car or motorbike. Thanks to the favor of nature, Ba Vi has fresh and cool air all year round. Just set foot in Ba Vi, you will feel like you are lost in a new world, a paradise with quiet space, fresh air and unspoiled natural scene.
Ba Vi National Park, cactus garden or ancient church … are destinations that you cannot miss when coming to Ba Vi. In addition, you can also visit some places near Ba Vi such as: A9 – Da Chong relic site, Khoang Xanh – Suoi Tien tourist area, Tien Sa lake eco-tourism area…
3. Tam Dao
Always likened to Da Lat of the North, Tam Dao is famous for its cool air and beautiful scenery like Europe. Tam Dao is about 80km from the center of Hanoi, so it only takes about 2 hours by car to enjoy the cool air of this destination.
Although Tam Dao does not have too cold weather in the summer, but with the average temperature of the year only about 18 degrees Celsius, you can “fly away” the sweltering summer heat of Hanoi summer weather season.
Tam Dao’s tourist attractions are quite close to each other, so you only need about a day to explore the whole town of Tam Dao. The TV tower, Ba Chua Thuong Ngan temple, Tam Dao ancient church, Silver waterfall… are all places that you should not miss when coming to this foggy town.
