The sea in harmony with the forests: Quang Ninh Tourism

Of the Red River Delta provinces, Quang Ninh province wins the creator's favour with a system of various and diverse kinds of natural tropical forests. More fortunately, the province is home of 2 the National Parks: Bai Tu Long National Park (Van Don) and Dong Son - Ky Thuong Natural Reserve (Hoanh Bo) which are the sources of "green resources" for sustainable tourist development. Naturally rich as they may be, the "green resources" for tourism have not been utilized as they should be...

Bai Tu Long National Park

Top-listed of all is Bai Tu Long National Park. For a long time, the National Park becomes well known for its fascinating eco-tourism ranging an area of 15.783ha, including 6,125 ha forest land and 9.650 ha sea surface, tidal wetlands. The rocky island belonging to the park consists of different eye-catching caves as Cai De cave, nearly 2 kms in length, part of great Tra Ngo island, with one end linking a mangrove forests covering nearly 200ha; In Soi Nhu cave (Ha Long commune), the ancient Viet Namese people's remains of the Old Stone Age dating back 20,000 years ago have been found. there are also peaceful sand shallow beaches of Chuong Nep, Nhang Ria (Minh Chau) and Son Hao (Quan Lan) as well ...

Most impressively, Minh Chau, the approximately 3-km-long beach with white smooth sand, soft waves, is considered the most attractive one in the Gulf of Tonkin. Above the sea is the over 100-year-old natural pure forest of ​​14ha surrounding the beach ideal for eco-tourism. What is more, in the heart of ​​Bai Tu Long National Park is Ba Mun archipelago the biggest, most superb, diverse in flora in Bai Tu Long National Park ...

Though limited parts of ​​Bai Tu Long National Park have functioned as tourist sites for five past years. the great potential has no been fully realized..

Unlike Bai Tu Long National Park, In the Nature Conserve The Son - Ky Thuong, little is known in terms of tourism. The ​​15637.7ha - wide Park belongs to 5 communes of Dong Son, Ky Thuong, Dong Lam, Vu Oai, Hoa Binh bordering Ba Che district and Cam Pha city. In the Reserve, there are many species of fauna and flora, many of which are Red Book listed rare species The eco-system here such as Khe Ria fall in Dong Lam commune with cool climate, beauty landscapes, hills, mountains, waterfalls and forests partly hidden with hanging mist best for resort eco-tourism is perfect ...

Despite the natural favours and the flourishing tourism in most parts of the province, the Nature Reserve Dong Son - Ky Thuong has not been included on the tourist map of Quang Ninh tourism. There were some investment projects on tourism development in some areas of the Park (allowed by Decree No. 117/2010/ND-CP of the Government on the organization and management of special forest system). However, due to unknown reasons, no project has been realized ...

The development of ecotourism in the forests today not only is economically and socially beneficial but also makes crucial contribution to the image of Quang Ninh tourism highly respected nationwide and worldwide as well.

In fact, the tourist operation in the Natural Parks is facing challenges and tremendous pressures from the economic development activities, local communities ... And also there are many possible solutions proposed to ensure and support for conservation activities. Eco-tourism has always been considered as a leading solution, not only contributing to job creation and assistance for the local development, but also is very useful for conservation tasks. Through this form of tourism, all people and visitors enjoy and realize the value of nature to promote conservation, reduce the negative human impact on the forests, as well as contribute positively to the socio-economic development. The potential, however, has not been effectively realized.

To develop eco-tourism, sustainable one, in the Natural Conserve, sustainable tourist products should be necessarily made. Hence, the development of various tour programs, eco-tours in the forests, mass and experience ones for students and foreigners ( to study unique values ​​such as the beauty landscape, biodiversity, cultural and historical values ...), tours to the potential tourist sites, etc...should be considered. In addition, the trekking trips through forests, over the falls and camping tours etc.. are well-suited in these forests.

In brief, how to utilize the forests to develop eco-tourism, sustainable one, is so challenging for travel managers. Once well-utilized to develop eco-tourism, the forests not just are socially economically beneficial but also helps improve the image of Quang Ninh tourism nationwide and worldwide. And the most important thing is that the unique natural resources of forests should not be wasted, but enrich the tourist products of Quang Ninh./.
