(HBO) - Tourism is considered as one of the advantageous economic sector in Lac Thuy district, especially spiritual tourism. This is also considered as one of the key economic sectors that bring great revenue to the local budget. However, in order to exploit this advantage, the district has faced with some difficulties, especially in terms of infrastructure. Therefore, the priority of improving this issue is being paid attention by Lac Thuy district.

The Printing Factory Relic Area, Co Nghia commune (Lac Thuy) attracts many tourists inside and outside the province to visit.

According to statistics, Lac Thuy district currently has 85 relics, in which six relics have been classified as the national relics by the Ministry of Culture and Information, 11 relics are at provincial level and 29 relics need to be protected. This is the basis for Lac Thuy district to develop tourism, in which spiritual tourism is one of the strengths of the locality.

Identifying that tourism and services are important economic sectors in the economic structure of the district, every year, the district promotes propaganda in many forms and on the mass media about the country and people of Lac Thuy district. Especially, the sites of sightseeing, scenery and cultural history of Tien pagoda, Phu Lao commune, the historic revolutionary siteof the first revolutionary site of the first revolutionary printing house in Co Nghia commune with the international and domestic visitors, all of which make the highlight of tourism activities, attracting many visitors to visit.

However, tourism in the district has not developed adequately with the potential as well as available advantage. The revenue as well as the number of visitors visiting in the early months of 2018 decreased 10% over the same period in 2017. This is partly due to the fact that local tourism activities are mainly spontaneous; the connections amongroutes and tourist destinations are not effective; the tourism promotion and investment is not much, the State management of tourism has not really been thorough and has not created the typical tourism products of the locality.
