The first Vinh Long Tourism Festival was held over August 25-26 in Long Ho district as part of activities to promote local waterway tourism to the province’s domestic and foreign visitors.
A wide range of activities were launched during the two-day event, such as a delicious fruit contest, a vegetarian food contest, a boat race, a Vietnamese product fair in rural areas, a demonstration of the art of cock-fighting, performances of Don ca tai tu (Southern amateur music), a charming Ao ba ba (a traditional shirt of Southerners) contest, and a talk on developing special tourism products of Vinh Long.
Lu Quang Ngoi, vice chairman of the provincial People’s Committee, said the festival helped travel agents in and outside of the province to share their experiences in tourism management and development, and gave the locality an opportunity to advertise its cultural values and special tourism products to visitors.
Vinh Long province will continue to focus on developing its eco-waterway tourism with unique products such as homestays and tours of craft villages and cultural and historical relic sites, in the aim of establishing tourism as a key economic sector in the near future.
The Mekong Delta province welcomed more than 1.2 million visitors last year, including over 70,000 foreigners, to generate a revenue of more than VND340 billion. It will further coordinate with nearby provinces and cities to boost regional tourism development.
