  • Ly Son has new mural village

    Ly Son has new mural village

    A village of sea-island murals has taken shape on Be Island, part of the Ly Son Island chain off the coast of central Quang Ngai province, painted by volunteer experts from the International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN). Eighteen murals reflecting the lives of villagers have been created on walls, with the sea turtle being the main theme. Ly Son Island is one of only a few places in Vietnam where sea turtles live. The volunteer team also cleaned, painted, and renovated 25 dilapidated homes of poor households. The presence of the fresco village on Be Island will become a destination for community tourism, supporting local people to improve their livelihoods and contributing to raising awareness among people and local authorities about the importance of marine environmental protection.

  • Project to boost Ly Son Island tourism

    A project to boost the tourism development of Ly Son Island off the coast of the central province of Quang Ngai has been approved by authorities. The 330 ha project, costing VND2,839 billion ($132 million), is expected to provide various services of basic to luxury standard. The island will have more beaches, villas, entertainment complexes and civil aviation services, as well as a dock for yachts, among others. The State budget will account for 4% of the total investment and the remaining capital will be mobilised from investors. The project will be divided into two phases. The first phase will run from 2015 to 2020 and the second from 2021 and 2025. It is estimated that 40,200 tourists visited Ly Son Island last year and this is expected to increase significantly following the completion of the project, with the opening of new services such as resorts, seaplane services, and entertainment parks.
