Featuring a river cruise down the Gianh river, tourists will have the opportunity to visit a variety of villages located nearby.
The tours will include stops at a craft village making Banh Trang (a traditional Vietnamese dish known as "girdle pancakes”), a village that produces traditional conical hats as well as experiencing unique local life through discovering Gia Hung cathedral and nearby distilleries.
Ho An Phong, director of Quang Binh province’s department of tourism, said the province has implemented an ADB-funded project to instigate the development of tourism along the river route through government support.
Mr Phong emphasized that the provincial tourism industry will need to develop tourism services along the Gianh River to fully fulfill its potential. Accordingly, tourists will take cruise trips from Phong Nha to the Gianh River, visiting traditional craft villages along the Gianh River in districts such as Quang Trach and Tuyen Hoa and Ba Don town.
