Thousands descend on Tam Chuc pagoda during the start of Lunar New Year
Situated in Ba Sao town of Kha Phong commune in Kim Bang district, Tam Chuc pagoda witnessed over 60,000 people visit the site on January 29

As the nation’s largest temple, Tam Chuc pagoda in the northern province of Ha Nam has seen hordes of people flock to the site during the opening days of the Lunar New Year, with the Management Board of the site deciding against selling entrance tickets to avoid severe congestion.

In order to move between the parking area and the temple, visitors are able to travel either by boat or shuttle car. Due to the area’s popularity the wharf is constantly crowded with visitors, with ticket prices set at VND200,000 per person for round-trips

Tourists scramble as they all try to board a boat, with each boat carrying only 60 people per voyage.

Approximately 500 electric cars are present with each one operating at full capacity. The price of an electric car is VND90,000 per person for the 12 km-trip to the pagoda

Due to the burden placed on the electric cars and boats at the site, the Management Board has been able to mobilise roughly 100 passenger cars to serve visitors with the capacity of each vehicle ranging from 29 to 45 seats

The Jade tower within Tam Chuc pagoda stands at 15 metres high and serves as one of the venue’s most popular tourist attractions among visitors
