HCMC – The Mekong Delta province of Ca Mau plans to spend VND1,458 billion on resort and ecotourism development in U Minh Ha National Park by 2030.
The project will cover an area of 1,318 hectares, and offer a broad range of tourist products and attractions, such as fauna and flora collections, herbal gardens, forest villages, and traditional craft villages, in addition to diverse hospitality services.
Tran Hieu Hung, director of the provincial Department of Culture, Sports, and Tourism, said the development of tourism in U Minh Ha National Park would ensure natural resources protection and biodiversity preservation in the area.
The province has a two-pronged approach that improves the livelihood of locals based on sustainable tourism and raises public awareness on environmental conservation.
The 8,500-hectare U Minh Ha is part of Vietnam’s 34 national parks and one of the three core zones of the UNESCO-recognized World Biosphere Reserve Mui Ca Mau (Ca Mau Cape).
