Situated in the northern mountainous province of Tuyen Quang, Na Tong cultural village is one of 130 tourist destinations of 11 APEC economies that have been selected by the APEC Secretariat to promote tourism in the Asia-Pacific region.
According to the APEC website, the cultural village of Na Tong is about 130km from Tuyen Quang city and 290 km from Hanoi’s capital. The village is inhabited by the Tay ethnic group residing along Thuong Lam Valley and boasts both beautiful natural scenery and fresh air.
Upon arrival in Na Tong, visitors have the opportunity to enjoy the majestic natural landscape and discover the traditional culture of the Tay ethnic people, such as the architecture of the house, accommodation, food, culture, art, traditional legends, and rituals, says the website.
In 2017 Na Tong started welcoming and letting tourists stay overnight in the village. Since then, the name Na Tong has become well known among tourists from near and far.
The website also offers guidance in detail about how to travel to the area, the best things to do in Na Tong village, what’s good to eat in the village, as well as information about accommodation there.
The Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) forum was established in 1989 to leverage the growing interdependence of the Asia-Pacific region.
Currently, the website of the APEC with the address https://communitytourism.apec.org focuses on tourism promotion, in which the APEC Secretariat selects typical destinations for APEC members. It provides an opportunity to promote community tourism in the Asia-Pacific region, thereby attracting more and more tourists to those destinations.
