VTV.vn - Ben Tre Province is now offering climate change tours, in addition to its traditional tours through its rivers and farms.

The new tourism service brings tourists to locations where there is clear evidence of the impact of climate change. Some of these places include Thanh Phu District, where hundreds of square meters of protective forests have been lost and where landslides have occurred. There's also Cho Lach District, Ba Tri District, and Binh Dai District where there's a lot of salinization and water shortages. The tour contributes to raising awareness of the need to protect the environment, and gives a closer look at the effects of climate change. It is forecast that about 30% of Ben Tre province will be flooded when the sea level rises by 75 centimeters in 2100.
