The attraction of Yen Trung Lake comes from the large, flat water, the roads under the canopy and fresh air.
Yen Trung is a large freshwater lake in Quang Ninh province, about 100 hectares wide, belonging to Phuong Dong ward (Uong Bi city). Surrounding the lake is the green of the mountains and the pine forests for a long time, making this place many tourists like "miniature Dalat" of Quang Ninh.
A road passes through pine forest along Yen Trung lake. This destination is about 6 km from the center of Uong Bi city and more than 1 km from National Road 18A, providing a quiet space, in stark contrast to the noise and dust of the streets.
When visiting the lake, visitors can see how people get resin. The bowls and bottles appeared on many pine trees in the forest, catching fresh, ivory white plastic.
Yen Trung Lake is still quite new to tourists from remote provinces, but is a popular tourist destination with people in Quang Ninh. This place is suitable for day or weekend excursions for families and friends. Visitors can camp, picnic under the shore canopy or hire boats from the locals to set up two small islands in the middle of the lake at an agreed price.
