Thai Binh (VNA) – Hundreds of vacationers flocked to Con Vanh ecological tourism site in Nam Phu commune, Tien Hai district, the northern province of Thai Binh, each day during its peak time from April to July.

What attracts holiday-makers most to the site is a 7-km long beach, its diverse mangrove forest and reasonable prices.

Dang Van Cuong, a tourist from Ly Nhan district, the northern province of Ha Nam, said the site offers bathing, fresh air, entertainment and cheap seafood.

According to To Manh Bien, deputy head of the site’s management board, local restaurants have committed to observing business regulations and serving clean food with clear origins.

Tourists have been encouraged to report those providing unhygienic food to the management board, he said.

Teams in charge of collecting garbage have been established across the site with local students participating during weekends.

To ensure safety for tourists, the management board has advised them to use lifebuoys and bath in safe zones, Bien said, adding that the Tien Hai district People’s Committee has handed over a motorboat to the management board and organised training courses for rescue forces.

Con Vanh is located in the Tien Hai Wetland Nature Reserve and was recognised as a Ramsar site in 1995.

Together with the Xuan Thuy National Park in Nam Dinh province, the Tien Hai Nature Reserve in Thai Binh province plays a significant role in preserving national and international biodiversity.

The sites form two core areas in the Red River Delta Biosphere Reserve – which spreads over Ninh Binh, Nam Dinh and Thai Binh provinces, and was recognised by UNESCO as a world biosphere reserve in 2004.-VNA
