Thien Van Hill - Hai Phong's 'miniature Dalat'

Translated by Bing
Thien Van Hill is about 10 km from the city center, known as "Little Dalat" thanks to its fresh, tranquil air and abundant vegetation.

Thien Van Hill is located in the center of Kien An district, a busy urban area of Hai Phong City . To reach Thien Van Hill, start from Kien An junction, straight to Tran Thanh Ngo street, continue 100 meters along Nguyen Xien street to reach Dragon gate, then follow the small road towards the top of the hill. Astronomy Hill will bring many special feelings, making you feel like you are entering a completely different world with cool air and tranquility. Try hiking to the top of the hill for the full experience.


Astronomy Hill has winding paths and abundant, green vegetation all year round. On the hill planted many pines, creating a scene like Dalat. With a cool climate, easy roads, Thien Van Hill is a favorite walking and cycling place of Hai Phong people. The peaceful atmosphere on Astronomy Hill is far from the noise and bustle below.



Along the way from the foot of the hill to the top, there are many stone benches for people to rest and breathe fresh air. With many beautiful check-in corners, Thien Van Hill also attracts young people to take photos. Nguyen Hoa, 19, a student at Hai Phong University, poses with his friend on the winding road in Thien Van Hill.

There are many other activities such as relaxing camping. Ms. Phuong Thao, 33, from Hong Bang district, also found a suitable forest for camping with friends on weekends.


At the top of Tianwen Hill, there is Phu Lien meteorological observatory, at an altitude of 113 m. This is a hydrometeorological observatory in the Northeast region built by Indochina Governor-General Paul Doumer in 1902 according to French architecture. From the top of the hill, you can enjoy the panoramic view of Kien An district, a bustling and old urban area in Hai Phong City.
