Located inside Pu Luong Nature Reserve, Kho Muong village is surrounded by evergreen forests and is an ideal getaway for those seeking to experience ethnic minority life. Thirteen local households now offer homestay services, each year welcoming 300 tourists on average and earning up to 5000 USD. But they still encounter numerous difficulties in providing tourism services, in particular a lack of investment in sanitation.
The same situation applies for eight homestays in Am Hieu village, Co Lung commune, in Ba Thuoc district. Though it welcomes 3200 tourists each year and every household can earn up to 1000 USD a month from tourism, they still require training and adequate investment to fully tap into tourism’s potential.
A brighter picture is seen in Don village, Thanh Lam commune, in Ba Thuoc district, which has 29 beautiful homestays and impressive terraced fields. Roads to the village, however, are still in poor shape, which is hindering tourism development.
In order to better exploit the tourism potential the locality holds, the People’s Committee of Ba Thuoc district has been zoning tourist attractions, upgrading public infrastructure, and organising training classes for local tourism service providers./.
