Regarding the cultural and spiritual tourism, the space of Vinh Nghiem pagoda was expended up to 8.4 ha from 2ha which is under request to upgrade to some 40 ha with many new items.

Currently, several religious and spiritual tourism projects have been completed such as the main hall of Truc Lam Phuong Hoang Zen Monastery in Nham Bien town to meet the tourists’ demand for sightseeing and religious visits. The project was invested some 100 billion VND (4.3 million USD).

Many visitors flock to Vinh Nghiem pagoda.

However, it is necessary to have breakthrough steps to tap the local strong points in Phuong Hoang land.

Recently, Yen Dung district has executed many projects to develop the traffic infrastructure to enhance the area linkages and drive the development of industry – service – tourism.

Particularly, the road to Kem pagoda (Nham Bien town) and the road to link provincial road No.299 to No.293 (Tay Yen Tu road) were completed while many other routes are put in construction.

However, there are several shortcomings in local tourism sector such as few accommodation suppliers (34 facilities with 380 rooms), few services at the prominent tourism sites in the district such as Vinh Nghiem pagoda, Truc Lam Phuong Hoang Zen Monastery...

Yen Dung district is gradually developed the tourism potentials into economic advantage by investing great efforts and materials. Now, it is truly need for a bold and drastic development and preservation so that tourism sector can contribute more to the local budget and the general socio-economic growth.
