Tourism areas upgraded, images of the people, culture and tourism of the Muong Vang land further popularised, and more destinations of sightseeing and festivals formed are among the strides Lac Son district has made after three years of implementing Resolution No. 06-NQ/HU, dated July 26, 2021, of its Party Committee to turn tourism into an important economic sector.

 


The pristine and majestic beauty of Mu Waterfall in Tu Do commune, Lac Son district, attracts a large number of domestic and international visitors.

Over the past years, infrastructure for socio-economic development, especially the facilities serving tourism, in Lac Son has improved considerably. Utilising different capital sources, the district has completed upgrading and expanding Road 12B and Provincial Roads 436 and 437. Many linking districts, communes, and villages have also been paved, making the district more accessible for tourists.

As a result, local sites of natural, ecological, and community-based tourism such as Mu Waterfall in Tu Do commune, Bai Bui – a grassland area in Ngoc Lau commune, the Muong flower garden in Vu Binh commune, and the terraced rice fields in Quy Hoa and Mien Doi communes are attracting more and more visitors.

Aside from developing infrastructure and creating conditions for organising festivals, the district has also paid attention to holding tourism promotion events and bringing into play the local cultural identity. Communications and promotion activities have been diversified such as opening booths at exhibitions; coordinating with the Mass Culture Department under the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism and central press agencies to produce films and documentaries about local culture and tourism; and working with press outlets of Hoa Binh province to introduce landscapes, historical and cultural relic sites, and traditional festivals of Lac Son.

The district is currently home to two hotels with star ratings, 24 accommodation establishments, and 17 community-based hostels.

Some tourist destinations have also had their infrastructure properly invested such as Coi Communal House in Vu Binh commune, Khoi Communal House in An Nghia commune, the relic site of Regiment 52 (Tay Tien Regiment) in Thuong Coc commune, and Khenh Communal House in Van Son commune.

Besides, the postal and telecommunications system and the information technology network, including transceiver stations, now cover all local tourism areas and destinations, ensuring convenience for travellers to keep communication and search for information.

Bui Van Kia, Standing Vice Secretary of the district Party Committee and Chairman of the district People’s Council, said by implementing the resolution, local tourism has been flourishing as seen in the growing number of visitors. Apart from domestic tourists, some community-based tourism sites in Tu Do and Quyet Thang communes have also welcomed thousands of international travellers.

Lac Son aims to become one of the centres of high-quality leisure and wellness tourism in the northern mountainous region and Vietnam by 2030 by capitalising on its quality hot spring potential, beautiful natural landscapes, the fresh environment, the northern region’s biggest artificial freshwater lake, and its unique culture.

To that end, it will strongly carry out such measures as stepping up tourism promotion, creating conditions for businesses to invest in tourism with a focus on ecological and community-based tourism, and enhancing cooperation with localities and businesses to develop attractive tourism products, according to the official.
