QUẢNG NAM — The central province’s Culture, Sports and Tourism department has introduced eight new tourism sites in the province this year.

Director of the department, Đinh Hài told Việt Nam News that the province now operated tours to a forest of centuries-old Pơ Mu trees in Tây Giang District.

He said these trees, some of which are about 1,000 years old, have been included on the national heritage register.

Triêm Tây Village in Điện Bàn town was recognised as a community-based tourism site, across the Hoài River only 10 minutes from Hội An City.

Hương Mỹ organic farm village and beach of Bình Minh in Thăng Bình District along with rural market in Tiên Phước District also offer a rural lifestyle and farm produce.

Tourists can explore and practice with local residents in farmin, and enjoy a homestay in the two districts.

Tam Hải island – off the coast of Núi Thành District – has been linked with Chàm Island and Lý Sơn Island in Quảng Ngãi Province in a sea route.

Recovered mangrove forest in Tam Giang Commune in Núi Thành will offer a tour of sea and wetland biodiversity as well as fishing villages.

Travel agencies in the province also launched a cruise service along the Thu Bồn River connecting rural villages with Hội An, nipa palm forest of Cẩm Thanh and crafts villages of Kim Bồng, Bàn Thạch and Duy Vinh.

Mountainous district of Nam Trà My, where is known for farms of Ngọc Linh ginseng offers a tour to ginseng farms and ethnic hamlets in the district.

The mountainous districts in Quảng Nam Province including Tây Giang, Nam Giang, Bắc Trà My, Nông Sơn, Quế Sơn and Nam Trà My are favourite destinations for motorbike rides and off-the-road adventures that give a glimpse of the lifestyle of ethnic minorities at 1,500m above the sea level.

Last month, the province in co-operation with Đà Nẵng and Thừa Thiên-Huế province hosted a promotion programme in Bangkok, introducing new tourism services and destinations to travel agencies in Thailand.

Quảng Nam, home to world heritage sites Hội An, Mỹ Sơn sanctuary and Chàm Island-Hội An biosphere reserve, hosted 4.4 million tourists last year. — VNS
