Among the ships, seven can transport 36-50 passengers each, while the remainder can carry 70 to visit Tam Chuc Lake.

The ships are used for transporting visitors before the event. During the event, they will serve delegates.


The ships are designed with two floors and pagoda roofs, looking like pagodas on the water.

Initially, Xuan Truong Construction Company planned to operate boats on Tam Chuc Lake at Trang An tourist site in Ninh Binh Province.

However, some parts of the lake are quite deep, which is not safe for boats. So the company decided to use larger vessels.
