    Being one of the major donors for the Vietnam tourism industry, SNV has been and are supporting eight North Western provinces in responsible tourism development by developing tourism products and branding within the framework of the Northern Trail project.

    One of the tangible outcomes of this activity is development of a website for eight North Western provinces, which has been handed-over to the ESRT Programme in May 2012.


    The ESRT Programme will support eight North Western provinces, represented by Department of Culture, Sports and Tourism of Lao Cai (being the leader of the eight provinces working group), to maintain and develop the website


    Objective of the website:

                    -          To promote Responsible Tourism both domestically and internationally

    -          To promote tourism brands and products in the Northwestern region to domestic and international tourists

    -          To provide information on inter-province tourism activities to tourism practitioners


    This website plays an important role in enhancing tourism product competitiveness in the North Western area, as well as promoting public-private dialogue.
