The move aims to reduce the burden on budget spending for the restoration of the site.

Specifically, entrance fees to Yen Tu will be VND40,000 each adult and VND20,000 each child. Children under 1.2 meters or under 7 years old, person with disabilities, Buddhist or Buddhist delegates are free.

People who enjoy preferential policy on culture in accordance with Decision 170/2013/QD-TTg of the Government leader and elderly people will benefit from 50% discounts on the entrance fees.

Earlier, at the 4th session of the 13th provincial People’s Council in December 2016, the plan of collecting entrance fees to Yen Tu was proposed but not yet approved by the People’s Council, because many projects were under construction in the relic.
