QUANG NAM (VNS) — Quang Nam Province will debut a community-based tourism site in Dien Ban District's Triem Tay Commune this July.
The district's culture and information centre told Viet Nam News that the site is included in the new 2015-20 tourism development project that will receive assistance and support from UNESCO and the International Labour Organisation.
The rural commune will offer tourists a chance to see and participate in farming and fishing production activities as well as learn about local cuisine and lifestyles while lodging with locals in organised home-stays.
The central province is home to two UNESCO-recognised world heritage sites – Hoi An ancient town and My Son Sanctuary – and the world biosphere reserve of the Cham Islands.
Quang Nam drew 3.7 million tourists last year, of which 1.7 million were foreign visitors. — VNS
