Vice director of the department Huynh Thi Phuong Hoa told Viet Nam News that the island of Ly Son, mountainous Ba To District, the mural village of Thanh Thuy in Binh Son District, My Thien pottery village and the rural gardens of Nghia Hanh District have been selected to host visitors in the first quarter of next year.

She said the province has prepared accommodations, tour services and connections among travel agencies and locals to boost tourism in a way that will benefit local communities.

She said Ly Son Island is regarded as the first location in the province promoting home-stay services with 56 households.

According to island authorities, 18 hotels, guest houses and home-stays provide accommodation for 1,000 tourists at present. Visitors can explore farming experiences and rural life in the villages of Nghia Hanh District and encounter the culture of the H’Re ethnic group living in Ba To District.

Ba To District, 40km south of the provincial capital Quang Ngai City, preserves traditional brocade weaving, gong play and dance and a museum of artifacts and history.

The islanders of Ly Son will offer local cuisine and garlic and onion farming for tourists during a sea trip from Sa Ky Port in summer.

An Binh Islet, three miles away from Ly Son Island, was decorated with a street art project by the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) last year. Boat services linking Ly Son Island with the Cham and Tam Hai islands in Quang Nam Province and the Han River Port in Da Nang City have been planned to boost tourism next year.
