Our Community Based Tourism Project
Bavi Eco Tour
As a big part of our contribution to community development, we have created our exclusive Ba Vi Eco Tour. The mission of this project is to give travelers deep knowledge about the daily life of Vietnamese villages, let them get closer to nature, and support the local community. For this, we have contributed to facilities development and offer an extra source of income for the hosts in the village. We do also limit the number of tours to this area to keep the balance between communication with guests and their main business to avoid any negative impact from tourism. We carefully select the activities and give the preference which let travelers explore the sites by cycling, trekking, or using a paddleboat, which is more eco-friendly.
