The discount is considered a special gift for International Women's Day (March 8).

Cam Mountain is favored by tourists as a place to "hide from the heat", and to look for clouds in the early morning or at sunset. At present, the average temperature on the Cam Mountain is between 20 and 24 degrees Celsius during the day, and 30 to 34 degrees, sometimes up to 35 degrees, in the southern region. At night, the temperature drops below 20 degrees Celsius. 

According to the Board of Directors of the Cam Mountain Cable Car System, the reduction of ticket prices was done after the Tet holiday in order to welcome major holidays of the year, including International Women's Day (March 8), followed by the Hung Kings’ Death Anniversary and the April 30 - May 1 holiday.
