Tuyen Quang: Homestay tourism takes off

Bookmark and Share

Homestay tourism in Lam Binh District, the northern mountainous province of Tuyen Quang has drawn both domestic and international holiday-makers to the imposing landscape and cultural tradition of ethnic minorities in the locality.
Visitors can see raw mountainous regions and enjoy a family atmosphere when staying in a local homestay. Traditional stilt houses as well as “then” singing and “coi” singing now double up as tourism products.
Locals have upgraded houses to receive visitors and purchased more boats to take them to explore the Tuyen Quang hydropower plant reservoir.
This community-based tourism has earned local households stable incomes.
A board supporting agriculture business in the district has helped 16 families in Thuong Lam, Khuon Ha and Lang Can communes offer homestay services and has created opportunities for them to learn experience from each other.
Nguyen Van Hien, Vice Chairman of Lam Binh district People’s Committee, said that the locality will continue efforts to zone off potential tourism sites and pay heed to preserving ethnic minority groups’ cultural values.
The district will prioritise developing community tourism alongside preserving traditional culture and festivals as well as repairing historic relic sites and tourist attractions.
Homestay tourism villages will be built in the locality, ensuring sufficient infrastructure and hygiene.
Training courses will be opened for locals to restore cotton plantations and traditional weaving.
Covering 78,150 hectares, Lam Binh District has several tourist attractions such as Song Long Cave, Khuoi Nhi Waterfall, Khuoi Sung Waterfall and Hang Phia Vai archeological relic site. The locality is home to over 30,000 people from ten ethnic minority groups.
