With rapid growth in numbers of visitors, infrastructure development and services, the northern mountainous province of Ha Giang has proved its tourism attractiveness, especially during “golden tourism occasions” such as Buckwheat Flower Festival and Khau Vai Love Market. However to achieve substantial growth of the industry, more efforts among travel companies and local authorities are needed.

Many travel companies have asserted that as well as growth in the number of visitors to Ha Giang,the locality’s tourism products have become more and more popular with both domestic and foreign tourists.

Honestly, I fell in love with Ha Giang before I came. The path is quite difficult to travel, but the natural landscapes here are amazing with friendly people. We wish to introduce the beauty of Ha Giang to more tourists.

Phuong Quang Thang – Deputy Chairman

Vietnam Travel Association

Ha Giang has left an impression on both foreign and domestic tourists for its stunning natural landscapes, culture and friendly people.

One thing many visitors notice is the locality has kept its natural beauty. However, long and difficult- to-travel paths to Ha Giang and ineffective tourism disseminating work have hindered the sector’s growth.

Information about Ha Giang in Ho Chi Minh City is very limited. Ha Giang’s authorities should intensify disseminating works to lure more tourists.

Ha Giang’s local government has attempted to diversify tourism products of the province, while calling on investors to improve the quality of human resources in the sector.

Nguyen Van Son – Chairman

People’s Committee of Ha Giang

Ha Giang has called on domestic and foreign investors to invest more in tourism projects. The province will also create favourable conditions for enterprises to invest in the locality, contributing to bolstering tourism and economic development in the locality.

Ha Giang welcomed nearly 469,000 visitors in the first six months of this year, with foreign tourists accounting for more than 85,000. Total earnings from tourism exceeded 18 million USD.-VNA
