According to VOV, Reporter Cheng Chi Lun from The Central News Agency (CNA) (Taiwan, China) said, the mountainous areas of Quang Nam Province with majestic nature and rich culture are ideal conditions for tourism development: “Local people here shared with us that many international visitors coming to Tay Giang but most of them got here by motorbike, maybe it was the people who lived here, not the large groups from abroad. We think once the authority develops an efficient policy to develop tourism, many tourists will be attracted and people will have more chances to increase their income”.

It’s been a while since the Ancient Village of Co Tu, Tay Giang District has lived in a festive atmosphere. The bustling sound of gongs and drums with the tang tung da da dance of Co Tu people are the highlight to attract visitors and international reporters. Village patriarch A Lang Son, A Vuong Commune, Tay Giang District felt happy and proud when the unique cultural values of the Co Tu minority group were introduced to international friends.

“We feel over the moon to welcome friends from all over the world to the Tay Giang and Co Tu community and show their interests in the culture of Vietnamese ethnic groups. The policy of the Government is to develop green tourism, therefore, Tay Giang District has put every effort into protecting forests. Recently, Tay Giang is all green forest and so is the local culture, we can't give it up easily", said village patriarch A Lang Son.
