Community tourism project proving successful in central Vietnam


The community tourism model, intended to help poverty-hit areas in Vietnam, has been among many projects backed by the Asian Development Bank in recent years, and successful examples can now be observed in many regions in the north-central province of Quang Binh.

Thanks to those projects, local residents who previously earned a living by working in paddy fields or collecting logs for sale, sometimes through deforestation, now understand how to conduct tourism-related business in a professional manner.

The grounding for success, as observed in Chay Lap, a village in Phuc Trach Commune, Bo Trach District, is the smooth cooperation between the government, residents and a professional tourism company, with financial assistance from the ADB.
