(HBO) – Hoa Binh Lake in Hoa Binh province with the beauty of mountain and water has become a favourite destination for many domestic and foreign visitors, as they have a chance to not only enjoy the peaceful spaces but also experience adventure games on the lake, including kayaking and rowing.

Tourists excited to experience kayaking on Hoa Binh Lake.

Currently, in community-based tourism villages around the Hoa Binh Lake such as Mo Hem and Duc Phong in Tien Phong commune, Ke in Hien Luong commune of Da Bac district, and Ngoi in Suoi Hoa commune in Tan Lac, homestay owners have invested in upgrading infrastructure systems to preserve, restore and promote the cultural identity of their ethnic groups and ensure environment protection.

At the same time, they have taken the advantage of the lake to organize activities and games on the water such as rowing and fishing, bringing new experience to tourists.

Lo Thi Trang, the owner of Lake View Homestay in Tien Phong commune, said that one of the activities that draw the highest number of tourists to community-based tourism villages in Da Bac is kayaking and raft rowing.

In order to ensure safety for tourists, the owners of homestays have equipped tourists with life vest and arranged rescue personnel in rowing areas, while regularly examining and maintaining the boats to ensure operational safety.

Before getting on board, visitors receive guidance on how to row and get out of the boat. Even the first timerscan be confident to row after being instructed and wearing life vest, Trang said.

Taking off her life vest after rowing around, Nguyen Mai Lan, a visitor from Ninh Binh province, said exuberantly: "It’s a big fun to row on the massive water area of the lake. I feel like I’ve just completed a tough mission. We receive life vest and instructions on basic rowing skills, while seeing rescuers around, which brought us the feeling of safety to freely enjoy water activities.”/.
