Participants discussed cooperation programmes between State management agencies and businesses in the field, as well as shared experience in providing tour packages, improving the quality of human resources, and attracting investment to tourism.

Vice Chairman of the provincial People’s Committee Le Anh Duong said the locality will focus on developing spiritual, ecological, garden, community-based, and trade village tourism.

Bac Giang has signed a Memorandum of Understanding on cooperation with its bordering province of Hai Duong to develop tourism.

At the workshop, the provincial People’s Committee coordinated with the Vietnam Posts and Telecommunications Group to launch a smart tourism portal of Bac Giang at htpp:// and smart tourism app.

Located in the Lang Son - Hanoi - Hai Phong - Quang Ninh economic corridor and bestowed with stunning natural landscapes like Tay Yen Tu Natural Reserve, Khe Ro primeval forest, Dong Cao Plateau, and Khuon Than Lake, Bac Giang Province possesses huge potential to build various kinds of tourism products. 

The province is home to more than 2,200 historic and cultural relic sites, including Quan ho (romantic duet singing) which was recognised as a UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity, and Ca Tru which was inscribed in the UNESCO’s list of Intangible Cultural Heritages in need of urgent protection. 

It has tremendous possibilities to connect local tourism attractions with key tourism sites in the north such as Mau Son (Lang Son Province), Nui Coc Lake (Thai Nguyen Province), Ban Gioc Waterfall (Cao Bang Province), Ha Long Bay (Quang Ninh Province), and Con Son - Kiep Bac (Hai Duong Province).
