Lam Binh district joins hands to develop community-based tourism

TQO - With its advantages in terms of natural conditions, diverse tourism resources and unique cultural features of ethnic minorities, Lam Binh district in the northern province of Tuyen Quang is seizing numerous advantages to develop community-based tourism.

Realising Lam Binh’s tourism development potential, over recent years, a number of businesses, cooperatives and households have invested in developing the homestay tourism services in association with the ethnic cultural spaces such as stilt houses, display of labour tools and traditional costumes, resort services, food, lake tourism, mountain biking and Kayak sailing.

The family of Hoa Duc Phu in Na Tong village, Thuong Lam commune has cooperated with some friends to invest in community-based tourism. Taking advantage of a stilt house and a large campus, in addition to providing accommodation services, Phu has invested in constructing eight more saunas with Ngoc Am wood (cupressus funebris) tubs, selling coffee and offering a night fishing tourist adventure as well as relaxing massages.

After two years of implementing the project “Building and operating the community-based tourism model,” up to now, Lam Binh has 24 households participating in developing the community-based tourism in the communes of Lang Can, Thuong Lam, Phuc Yen and Khuon Ha. In 2019 alone, the district has welcomed over 50,000 domestic and foreign tourist arrivals. In order to develop community-based tourism, Lam Binh is focusing on closely associating with preserving national cultural identities, embellishing cultural and historical relics, restoring traditional festivals and craft villages, and developing high-quality agricultural products, especially local specialties, so tourists can have  unique and memorable experiences.

With the whole community joining hands in tourism development, there is a strong belief that the tourism potential in Lam Binh district will be exploited effectively, contributing significantly to boosting the local socio-economic development.
