Located in the vibrant city of Uong Bi, Phuong Hoang Hill is like a forgotten land. This place has a wild beauty, separate from the noise, bustle, and dust of big cities.

From the foot of the hill, visitors have to climb a rather steep and bumpy road to reach the top. Therefore, this place is suitable for those who love to move, love to exercise, and climb mountains. Visitors need to choose light and suitable clothes to facilitate the process of conquering Phoenix Hill.

Although it is a bit difficult to reach the top of the hill, along the way, visitors will be compensated well because they can fully admire the natural beauty of this place.

If visitors are not used to exercising, they can also travel by motorbike to reach the top of the hill, but it requires the rider to be experienced and familiar with the mountainous terrain. Another way is to hire a local to drive up the hill without spending too much effort.

According to Huy Khang (in Quang Ninh) – a person who loves new experiences, Phuong Hoang burning grass hill is a suitable destination for many outdoor activities such as picnics, photography, and camping. If visitors want to take great photos here, they should visit between 6 a.m. – 9 a.m. or 14:00 p.m. – 17:00 p.m and choose beige-toned clothing, like the colors black, red, yellow, or white.
