In the Development Master Plan for Tam Chuc National Tourist Area, Ha Nam province to 2030, this tourist area consists of six sections: The reception center (adjacent to the northern bank of Tam Chuc Lake) - a place to welcome and provide guidance information for tourists on relaxation, shopping, and culinary services; on visit and participation in cultural and artistic performances, fairs and modern entertainments.

To date, Tam Chuc Pagoda Cultural and Spiritual Tourist Area and its Reception Center, invested by Xuan Truong Construction Corporation, have been basically completed and put into service. As a tourism highlight of Ha Nam province and a connection point with major tourist areas and attractions in the Red River Delta, since its operation, the tourist area received millions of visitors and became the first choice of their sightseeing and worshipping tours.

To advance Tam Chuc Tourist Area to be recognized as the World Cultural and Natural Heritage by UNESCO, Xuan Truong Construction Corporation came up with the idea of ​​​​building a brand identity for Tam Chuc tourism.


To preserve and promote the value of cultural heritage, professional bodies of the Department of Culture, Sports and Tourism are conducting scientific research for domestic ranking and registration before proceeding to propose UNESCO for recognition of Tam Chuc Scenic Landscape Complex as the World Cultural and Natural Heritage. Through recent field trips to Tam Chuc Scenic Landscape Complex, the survey team of the Ha Nam Museum in collaboration with the Institute of Archeology initially discovered 10 valuable caves, stone roofs and Karst wells of natural landscape values that relate to the formation of geological tectonics millions of years ago. Particularly, the delegation discovered mussel dunes in the heart of Tam Chuc Lake with a relatively thick shell structure. In this layer of shells, cultural artifacts are also discovered, including pebbles, oncolites, flint stone cores, pieces of ceramics and dishes. The above artifacts belong to many periods from Dong Son culture to the Chinese ruled era and to Vietnamese feudal dynasties.

The above findings are very important, considered the key to unlock archaeological research and excavation to decipher the cultural history of Tam Chuc land. At the same time, it is the scientific basis and the most authentic evidence for compiling scientific documentation for the recognition of Tam Chuc Scenic Landscape Complex as the World Cultural and Natural Heritage by the government and UNESCO.
