Moc Chau aims to become a national tourism site by 2025
Around 200km from Hanoi Capital, Moc Chau has ideal geologic conditions, resulting in cool weather and a diverse ecosystem all year round, becoming a prime destination for relaxing vacations.
Expanding on 206,000 hectares in Moc Chau and Van Ho district in Son La province, the Moc Chau tourism complex welcomed 1.2 million tourists in 2019. In spite of the Covid-19 pandemic, the number slightly decreased to 850,000 tourists in 2020.
In 2014 and 2019, the Prime Minister decided an eco-tourism area, a theme park, and a resort will be included in the core of the Moc Chau national tourism site. With the goal of being recognized as the national site by 2025, the tourism managers are carrying out activities to promote tourism for both domestic and international tourists.
