Community Based Tourism at My Son Cham Ruins

By Hong Thanh.

14March2013 The first community-based tourism village was inaugurated at Duy Phu Commune, Duy Xuyen District, Quang Nam Province. There are  40 households taking part in providing tourist services such as homestay, food,...The village is close to the UNESCO World Heritage Site of My Son Cham Ruins.

The community tourism project, which had been sponspored by the Luxemburg Government, started going into operation after 1 year of research and inspection. Households at the village were trained in tourism and were assisted with improving the tourist infrastructure at their home. This promises to bring extra incomes to the local communities which are close to the World Heritage Site and which have always been having very poor living standards.
