    Tra Que vegetable village tours open

    Hoi An ancient town in central Quang Nam province has officially begun ecological tours to the famed Tra Que vegetable village in Cam Ha commune, which possesses the most abundant and varied vegetables in the area.

    Costing VND35,000 ($1.35) per person, the tours allow visitors to learn about the lives of local farmers and the vegetable growing process in the village, and they can also be involved in planting crops. Nearby relic sites are also within reach, as are the area’s many delicacies.

    Noting the success of pilot tours to the village conducted by several travel companies, Hoi An’s tourism authorities approved a project on community-based tourism development in Tra Que. The new tour is part of this project and aims to provide a new and interesting destination for visitors to explore peaceful and hospitable Hoi An.

  • First mural road finished in “Kingdom of Ginseng”

    A new mural road has been completed in mountainous Nam Tra My district in central Quang Nam province. The road is some 600 meters long and features 32 works, each 2.5 meters in height and 5 meters in width, depicting the beautiful local scenery, daily life, traditional songs and dance of local ethnic minority groups, and, especially, images of the district’s famous Ngoc Linh ginseng. The murals were painted by teachers and students at schools in the district to call for forest and environmental protection and the preservation and development of Ngoc Linh ginseng. According to local ginseng experts, the stems and roots of Ngoc Linh ginseng contain 52 saponins (the main component of ginseng, with the more saponins the better). Of the 52 saponins, 26 are commonly found in Korean, American, and Japanese ginseng, while the other 26 have only just been discovered, making it one of the world’s rarest ginseng.

  • Quang Nam targets zero plastic waste from tourism

    Central Quang Nam province’s focus on sustainable tourism development is being represented by a range of initiatives to build a friendly tourist environment, in which reducing plastic waste is among the key measures undertaken.

    The rapid development of tourism in the province has been accompanied by multiple challenges as the rising number of visitors results in an increase in the amount of waste such as plastic bottles and packaging.

    The province has released an action plan to cut plastic waste, which is also a focus of local tourism agencies. The waste challenge has been turned into opportunities in some cases, such as involving tourists in garbage collection in local tributaries.

    Quang Nam has also strived to promote green and accessible tourism products in the tourism value chain and created an innovative startup environment and creative design in tourism. It encourages suppliers and manufacturers of alternative materials to allow easy purchase by local people and tourist accommodation providers.
