A ceremony to launch tours of Viet Bac heritage sites was held in Bac Kan on November 7 with a special art performance.
Other activities scheduled for November 6 to 9 include sporting events, a photographic exhibition on Viet Bac’s land and people, a contest for presenters, a costume show of ethnic minority groups, a presentation of Bac Kan tourism site and a Bac Kan trade and tourism fair.
The Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism said developing tourism based on available resources in the region is very important. Viet Bac has great potential for developing tourism with imposing landscape and diversified culture. However, to help Viet Bac become an attractive destination for visitors, local authorities should join efforts to exploit and develop tourism products in a sustainable manner for the sake of protecting nature and maintaining cultural identity.
Famous landscapes in the region include Ba Be Lake – one of the world’s 20 biggest natural lakes, Tan Trao historic relics, Lenin stream, Pac Bo cave, Dong Van Plateau Geopark. Viet Bac is also home to ethnic minority groups with traditional folk songs, such as sli of the Nung ethnic minority, Soong co of the San Diu and Then of the Tay.
Provinces will take turns organizing the annual event to exchange experience and devise measures to support each other.
