Tours to the Ca Mau Cape National Park is among key tourism products of the province, giving tourists an opportunity to experience the diversity of the tropical mangrove forest in the UNESCO-recognised Ramsar Biosphere Reserve.
The local authorities have paid due attention to building cooperative brands for local typical products like Rach Goc dried shrimp, Nam Can crab, Hang Vinh shrimp crackers and Thoi Binh fish sauce.
Besides, the provincial People’s Committee has directed competent authorities to enhance investment promotion so as to attract capital for tourism resort complexes and eco-tourism sites, while improving human resources quality to create high-quality tourism services.
The province will organise a tourism week and inaugurate several works at the Dat Mui tourism site in later this year.
In the first eight months of 2019, the province welcomed more than 1 million visitors, up 15.1 percent year on year, accounting for 62.6 percent of the yearly plan. Tourism revenue reached over 1.67 trillion VND (72.1 million USD), increasing 10.7 percent from the same time last year, and making up 69.1 percent of the set target for the whole year.
