2019 was a successful year of Bac Giang’s tourism sector with the strong development of various tourism products. It was the first time we had promoted the tourism product of Tay Yen Tu to numerous visitors as a tourism highlight in Bac Giang province.

Apart from the available products of spiritual and historical tourism, in 2019 there were new kinds of tourism such as experiencing orchards in Luc Ngan district, enjoying the community based tourism.

Thought the entertainment tourism is a new trend in the province, it successfully attracted some 30,000 visitors outside the province to use the service in Yen Dung Golf Course.

The infrastructure was much improved while the province has gradually invested to the key tourism complexes and sites such as Tay Yen Tu, Suoi Mo, Than Nong, Yen The Uprising...

The tourist arrivals to Bac Giang in 2019 witnessed a year on year increase of 33 percent, first ever exceeding the number of 2 millions of arrivals as well as the set target and plan.

The number of foreign visitors sharply increased, exceeding 79 percent comparing to the figure in 2018 which helps accelerate the tourism growth in 2020 and upcoming years.

What are new features of 2020 Culture – Tourism Week (CTW)?

Basing on the success of last year event, this Culture – Tourism Week has several new features such as double increased space and scale of organization (last year it was launched in 5 districts and city while this year it will be held in 10 districts and city) with 25 major events instead of 14 events as last year.

This year CTW will last for 2 weeks meanwhile last year CTW was one week only. Thus, the 2020 CTW is expanded in space, time, scale and location.

This year, the CTW opening is attached with the ceremony to receive the Recognition Certificate of National Special Relic for Xuong Giang Victory Relic Site in Bac Giang city. Last year event was much closed to spiritual culture while this year is attached to history.

Under the theme of “Bac Giang – the sacred land Tay Yen Tu”, what is the message the Organization Board want to deliver to the visitors and local residents?

With the above mentioned theme, the CTW Organization Board and provincial leaders would like to say that Bac Giang is an ancient land that is rich in history and culture as well as the location to found, develop the Truc Lam Buddhism sect as its root.

The Organization Board hopes to promote and lure numerous tourists to visit, experience and enjoy that good values while joining hand with the province to preserve and widespread the precious cultural value as well as contribute to the socio-economic growth in the province and country.

What are the focal solutions to hold the 2020 CTW with bigger scale in longer time and more widespread?

Targeting a successful CTW, 5 basic solutions were suggested, firstly raising the awareness of the local authorities, businesses and residents to the event in order to help them understand that it is a chance to promote the tourism, culture, history, the land and people in Bac Giang.

It is also an activity to contribute to the local socio-economic development and the shared responsibility of the provincial authorities, residents, enterprises and cultural sector. Because the CTW is scheduled on the new year occasion, every issues should be thoroughly prepared in advance to create impression and gain expected efficiency.

The CTW features a chain of expanded events held in several days in many localities by the joint collaboration of province, commune and village, thus it is necessary to have a good instruction and coordination between the chair agency and others toward a fruitful event.

The event should be socialised at maximum level to make it become an event of the whole society but not the authorities and cultural agencies. The residents are subject, participant, supervisor and beneficiary.

The communication and promotion should be accelerated so that all the levels, sectors and people see its good purpose and meaning, understand the content and properties of each event, hence each person can be a tour guide.

Thank you very much!
