My Son Community Tourism Village opens


My Son Community-based Tourism Village in Duy Phu commune, central Quang Nam province, was opened on March 14 by the provincial Department of Culture, Sports and Tourism and the International Labour Organisation (ILO). 

The village, funded by the Luxembourg Government, is located close to the World Cultural Heritage Site of My Son. 

Forty households took part in the project, 30 of them from My Son hamlet. 

To ensure the effectiveness and sustainability of community tourism, five households built service facilities with a total sum of 15,000 USD mobilised by ILO. 

ILO’s representative Charles Bodwell said that the village helps improve local residents’ well-being and popularises My Son Heritage Site to domestic and foreign visitors. Its aims are both economic development and environmental protection.-VNA
