QUANG NGAI (VNS) — Popular tourist destination Ly Son Island in the central province of Quang Ngai has introduced taxi services for the first time to serve locals and visitors during Tet (Lunar New Year) a fortnight later.
If they prove popular, the taxis will continue to operate permanently.
Ly Son, with a population of more than 20,000, has many temples, cultural complexes and beautiful natural sites.
Most locals earn a living by fishing or farming. The island's speciality garlic is well-known nationwide for its delicious flavour.
Quang Ngai is preparing to develop homestay tourism on the island.
Last year the island received more than 36,600 visitors, up 30 per cent from 2013. — VNS
