Tuyen Lam Lake National Tourism Area, located in the Central Highlands province of Lam Dong, has recently been recognized as an outstanding tourism area in the Asia-Pacific region by UNESCO.
This recognition marks Tuyen Lam as the first site in Vietnam to receive this prestigious title, and it is the only one in Asia to be honored this time.
The announcement was made by the president of the Vietnam Federation of UNESCO Associations, stating that Tuyen Lam will officially receive the title during the Vietnam-India cultural and economic exchange.
This event, which will also honor intellectuals, managers, scientists, social activists, entrepreneurs, and businesses in Asia-Pacific, will take place in New Delhi on August 3, according to a report by VN Express International.
Tuyen Lam Lake, situated six kilometers south of Da Lat, a renowned tourist destination of Lam Dong, boasts a water surface of 350 hectares. The lake was formed by Tia stream up the Da Tam river. The name Tuyen Lam, which translates to ‘stream’ and ‘forest’ in Chinese Vietnamese, reflects the grandiose nature surrounding it.
The lake and its surroundings offer a tranquil atmosphere, fresh air, and a diversified natural landscape. It is poised to become a significant attraction with unique types of tourism such as sight-seeing, camping, health caring, trekking, mountaineering, fishing, visiting revolutionary base, and other activities for sport and recreation, especially eco-tourism.
Viewed from a cable car or seen from above, Tuyen Lam appears as a miniature ocean with each oasis on the lake a continent. Visitors can experience the immensity between sky and water surface and discover a very different Da Lat.
The recognition of Tuyen Lam as a UNESCO-recognized Asia-Pacific tourism area is expected to boost tourism in the region and attract more outdoor tourists in the future. The area’s potential for eco-tourism, coupled with its tranquil atmosphere and diverse natural landscape, makes it an ideal destination for outdoor enthusiasts.
