Stunning wind farm in Bac Lieu province

Published

on

Tourists used to visit Bac Lieu province mainly because of tales about affluent landlords with children whose lavish lifestyles gave rise to many anecdotes about “princes”. Visitors to the southern land now have other reasons, like experiencing breathtaking wind turbines rising up from the East Sea.

There is a wind farm located in the coastal area of Vinh Trach Dong commune, more than 10km from Bac Lieu city centre.

This was Vietnam’s first wind power project, built in 2010 with investment in the trillions of VND.

With a landscape as beautiful as a European sky, the area quickly became a tourist attraction.

The arrangement of the turbines combined with local roads makes travel easy, and visitors can go from one area to another without any problems.

The most suitable time to visit is early morning or late afternoon, when you can enjoy the sunrise and sunset over the sea.

Bac Lieu’s wind power area has been recognised by the Mekong Delta Tourism Association as an outstanding tourist destination in the Delta, with nine typical tourist attractions./.

Quang Nam moves to boost tourism development

Published

on

Quang Nam province has developed green, sustainable, and environmentally-friendly tourism offerings in a bid to attract visitors. However, experts believe, for a breakthrough to be seen in its tourism development, the province’s tourism sector should improve product quality and meet the increasing demands of tourists.

Quang Nam is a popular spot on Vietnam’s tourist map, with two world cultural heritage sites – Hoi An ancient town and My Son Sanctuary – as well as the Cu Lao Cham-Hoi An Biosphere Reserve.

In 2022, its Bai Choi folk singing was recognised by UNESCO as an Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity. Tra Que vegetable farming, meanwhile, has been recognised as a national intangible cultural heritage by the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism.

Agritourism, sea tourism, culinary tourism, and ecotourism are typical Quang Nam products attracting tourists, especially foreign visitors.

Due to the impact of COVID-19, many local businesses in the sector have faced difficulties in reinvesting to improve the quality of their offerings.

The Quang Nam Tourism Association said Quang Nam province should further improve its tourism environment, boost training and capacity building and make ethic codes readily available for workers in the sector.

Quang Nam’s tourism sector has made an impressive recovery post-pandemic. The total number of visitors in the first five months of this year is estimated at nearly 3.5 million, including more than 1.6 million foreign visitors, an increase of 30-fold over the same period last year.

Experts say local government, local people and businesses should work closely to post a strong breakthrough in tourism./.
