Some 2.4 million visitors embarked on a range of unique farm tours in Da Lat in the central-highlands province of Lam Dong during the first four months of the year, a rise of 10 per cent against the same period last year.
Aside from improving the quality of traditional tourist sites, the provincial tourism sector has put a major focus on developing and improving the quality of existing farm tours in order to provide tourists with a more varied and interesting experience.
Visitors can now pick red ripe strawberries, take beautiful photos amid the orchards, become involved in farming activities, and gain an insight into both organic farming and hydroponic vegetable growing models that can deliver a high quality and safe product to consumers.
Nguyen Thi Bich Ngoc, deputy director of the provincial department of Culture, Sports and Tourism, noted that Da Lat has over 30 standard tourist sites operating under the current model to serve tourists.
The locality has brought farming models into operation in order to turn the tourism sector into the province’s spearhead industry in the future, she added.
Ngoc emphasised that local authorities have strengthened promotional activities along with organisations and individuals to improve the service quality of these models.
