VTV.vn - Quảng Ngãi Province will submit documents to the UN cultural agency UNESCO in November 2019 to get Lý Sơn - Sa Huỳnh Geo-Park recognised globally.

A portfolio for the geo-park was completed after scientists wrapped up surveys and analyses to identify its value as a heritage site.

The ancient Sa Huỳnh culture inhabited Lý Sơn Island and the park includes 2600 sq km of ocean for a total 4600 sq km.

More than 300 geological, cultural, and historical heritage sites were found in the geo-park area. Recognition of Lý Sơn -Sa Huỳnh as a global geo-park would be a chance for Quảng Ngãi Province to promote tourism and preserve its thousand-year-old cultural values.
