According to Chairwoman of the Thung Nai commune People’s Committee Bui Thi Luyen, Thung Nai port, with wharf and waiting lounge upgraded and tourism services improved, is an important port to bring visitors to the Hoa Binh Lake Tourist Area.

A 20-minute boat ride will take tourists to the Thac Bo Temple, a renowned spiritual destination where they pray for good luck and prosperity, and enjoy picturesque landscapes. Domestic and foreign tourists have flocked to Mo hamlet in Binh Thanh commune, Cao Phong district, to experience tranquil lifestyle and discover the architecture of the Muong ethnics’ traditional stilt house. 

Many tourists stop by the community-based tourism sites in Mo hamlet, Binh Thanh commune, and Tien hamlet in Thung Nai commune to explore local culture and feel the beat of the tranquil lifestyle there. My Anh, a representative from a travel firm in Hanoi, said her business has introduced and developed diversified tours to the Hoa Binh Lake Tourist Area, with those to the Muong Ethnic Group Cultural Space Museum in Hoa Binh city and the community-based tourism sites in Thung Nai and Binh Thanh communes favoured by tourists. Well-preserved traditional stilt house, stunning scenes and standout cultural experience have made the communes attractive to visitors.

Notably, development of transport infrastructure and wharves have helped Hoa Binh attract capital to build accommodations and tourism offerings in the Hoa Binh Lake area. Many corporations have studied, surveyed and landed high-quality resort and eco-tourism investment in the two communes. Notably, the five-star Parahills resort, developed by Beru Group joint Stock Company, has been recently put into operation in Binh Thanh commune. Together with other tourism projects being carried out, the resort is expected to contribute to elevating local tourism profile.

According to head of the Culture-Information bureau of Cao Phong district Pham Ngoc Nhat, developing the resort- and eco-tourism, spiritual tourism and community-based tourism is a bold step to diversify offerings to attract visitors, thus helping improve sustainable local livelihoods and create jobs for local workers and promote growth for the Hoa Binh Tourist Lake Area.
