As one of the five localities in the Hoa Binh lake tourist site, Da Bac district has exerted efforts to carry out tourism promotion programmes. Every year, it organises a New Year festival of the Dao ethnic minority group to preserve its culture. Most recently, in late 2019, an agricultural and tourism promotion conference was held at Dua (Coconut) Island eco-tourism site to attract investors, businessmen and visitors. During the event, memoranda of understanding on investment cooperation were signed with eight enterprises with a combined capital of around 2 trillion VND. The projects are expected to open up opportunities to attract more tourists, generate more jobs and increase budget revenue, contributing to completing criteria to turn Hoa Binh lake tourist site into a national tourist site.

The province built an e-portal dedicated to the site, intensified promotion on the Vietnam National Administration of Tourism’s website, made video clips and short films featuring community-based tourist sites on Hoa Binh lake tourist site.

The province will make the best use of support from the Government and telecom businesses to expand mobile network coverage, and offer free Wi-fi at key tourist sites, and at the same time organise more famtrips and presstrips to help promote the image of Hoa Binh lake tourist site./.
