However, Tam Dao district has always been a destination with a strong brand on the tourist map.

However, with favourable conditions and full convergence of factors for tourism development, exploiting and developing tourism in the district is still limited and has not fully used the potential of tourism of the community, specifically: Infrastructure for tourism development has not been synchronously invested, many works have been degraded; tourism products are not yet abundant, service quality has not kept pace with the increasing demands of tourists; business and service activities are mainly individuals and households according to seasonality and have not yet created specific products bearing the Tam Dao tourism brand. Besides, promotional activities in tourism are still modest, qualified human resources in tourism are lacking; lack of application of science and technology in tourism, international cooperation and environmental protection in tourism development,.etc

To effectively promote and exploit Tam Dao tourism development potential effectively, the Provincial People’s Committee has just issued Decision No. 1508/QĐ-UBND approving the “Project on tourism development in Tam Dao district up to 2025, orientation towards the year 2030”.

The goal of the proposed project is to focus on building and completing infrastructure, especially tourism infrastructure. Develop new tourist attractions, invest in building high-quality tourist attractions, develop community cultural tourism, develop tourism associated with forest and ecological environment protection, promote and exploit profitable tourism products of the locality. By 2025, Tam Dao tourism industry develops its characteristic images, suitable with potentials and advantages, gradually turning Tam Dao district into a town. By 2030, Tam Dao district will become a notable tourist town, one of the tourism centers of the province and the whole country, a friendly, attractive destination for tourists. 

To accomplish this goal, the project offers nine solutions for implementation. In particular, we are focusing on meaningful solutions to leverage and build infrastructure, such as supporting investment in tourism development.
