Immerse In The Mesmerizing Sights Along The Lam River (Nghe An province)
Vietnam has 2,360 rivers with a total length of about 41,900 km. Among them, many rivers have traveled over the years, witnessing the ups and downs of Vietnamese history. It's hard to define which one bears the most magnificent beauty, but as the river of my homeland, being an indispensible part of my childhood, today, I want to introduce to you the Lam River, symbol of Nghe An province.
Nghe An province may be not as famous regarding tourism and travel as other cities or provinces in Vietnam, but if you are an explorer who want to discover the pristine beauty or simply just desire to find somewhere to escape from hustling populous cities, then I am sure Nghe An is an ideal destination for you. Refering to Nghe An, it is a real omission without mentioning to the Lam river which has nurtured many generations of Nghe An people who have long been known for their diligence, creativity and exceptional vitality despite of harsh living condition.
The Lam river begins in Xiengkhuang plateau, Laos before making its way through Nghe An. The last part of the Lam River meets the La River forming the boundary of Nghe An and Ha Tinh province before letting out into the Eastern Sea. This grand river is 512 km long in total, making it the largest, longest and widest river in North Central Region, Vietnam. Hong Linh mountain and Lam river have become a symbol of the "sacred lands of heroic celebrities"area in the Central Vietnam. Lam River with blue water, smooth flow and poetic beauty of the banks not only goes into poetry but also becomes a memorable tourist highlight of Nghe "clean blue water and green mountains".

Hoa Lam fishing village (in Hung Hoa commune, Vinh city, Nghe An)
The joy of the people of Nghe, who are well-known for their being painstaking, it's simple as the afternoon with the fishing nets full of fish and shrimps. They return home when the sun fades behind the bamboo, when workers relax to add harmony to the painting of a fishing village in the Central region. The children laugh crumplingly on the rest of the boat, some others playing volleyball in the dirt yard surrounded by bamboo bushes while their parents are working hard in the river. The afternoon flies by, paveing the way for the light to turn into golden color. At the same time, the life of the fishing village is still flowing; however a bit slower, and then the first sunlights of a new day appear, they start a new day with the hope that today's shrimp and fish will be abundant in the boats.
Hoa Lam fishing village (in Hung Hoa commune, Vinh city, Nghe An) is located on the edge of Lam river, next to Vinh bypass. Hoa Lam fishing village every afternoon comes to peace under the sunset in the horizon. The small boat leisurely in the brilliant sunset of a summer day, making the souls wandering around everywhere realize, beauty is not far away but exists right in the simple and familiar things before eye.
