Dong Thap bolsters community-based tourism

The Mekong Delta province of Dong Thap is currently home to 73 community-based tourist attractions in Lai Vung and Thap Muoi districts and Cao Lanh city.

A Dong Thap tourism development project from 2015-2020 aims to turn tourism into the province’s spearhead sector, boost the growth of community-based tourism and devise tourism products, thereby creating more jobs and contributing to the labour transition process.

Many farms in the province have also worked to develop agrotourism with farm produce such as Chau Thanh longan, Lai Vung pink tangerine, Cao Lanh mango, Sa Dec ornamental flowers and Thap Muoi lotus, among others.

Deputy Director of the provincial Department of Culture, Sports and Tourism Ngo Quang Tuyen said travel companies have paid heed to the attractiveness of the homestay facilities.

He added that each tourism destination in the province has identified distinctive products and launched new seasonal tours to lure more visitors.

For example, tourists in the Dong Sen Thap Muoi area can enjoy various dishes made from lotus, ride boats and catch fish in the lotus pond. The tourist area is among the top attractions of tourists from other Mekong Delta localities and Ho Chi Minh City, the official noted.
