Hanoi (VNA) – Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc recently approved a master plan to develop Lang Co-Canh Duong national tourism site in the central coastal province of Thua Thien-Hue.

Situated in the Chan May-Lang Co economic zone in Phu Loc district’s Loc Vinh commune, the nearly 9,500-hectare tourism site is set to be built into a leading destination in the central region with comprehensive and modern technical infrastructure by 2025. It expects to receive 1.5 million tourists, including some 600,000 foreigners, and earn around 3.4 trillion VND (145.9 million USD) in the next seven years.

Envisioned to become an international tourism attraction by 2030, the site eyes 2.5 million visitors, with 950,000 foreign people.

The tourism site will provide various products, with Lap An lagoon prioritising eco-tourism, entertainment and promotion of local cuisines; Lang Co beach focusing on community-based tourism; and the southern region of the Hai Van Pass organising adventure and sightseeing tours.

Regarding accommodation, the site will focus on developing four to five-star standard hotels as well as high-end resorts and villas in Cu Du-Canh Duong area, Lang Co beach, Ca beach, Chuoi beach and Lap An lagoon. Meanwhile, homestay services will be run in Lang Co town and Hoi Mit and Hoi Dua residential areas.-VNA
