VTV.vn - Tây Giang District has a vision of combining discovery tourism with forest protection.

Ever since the giant Fujian Cypress forest, better known in Vietnam as the Pơ Mu forest, in Tây Giang District, Quang Nam Province was officially recognised as a primeval heritage forest, concerns have been raised about how to protect it while at the same time promote its heritage value. Tây Giang District has a vision of combining discovery tourism with forest protection.

 It takes more than an hour through the jungle to reach the centre of the forest, with dozens of giant Pơ Mu trees. During the trip, guides often use strings so that tourists don’t get lost along the way. According to the local Cơ Tu people, ever since they took part in tourism activities, they have felt closer to the forest, and are more willing to protect this natural heritage.

Returning to the wilderness is a tourism trend nowadays, so the giant Pơ Mu are certain to become a great tourist attraction. With its current vision and methods, Tây Giang District is on the right track to promote its tourism strengths and protect its natural heritage at the same time.
