The district’s move is in line with the National Target Program on new style rural area building for 2021-2025. Hai Lang district has much potential to develop tourism. Local authorities need to utilize the large forests in the western hills and the plains which are home to many lagoons and lakes to attract tourists.

Villages also organize many traditional festivals to introduce culture and history to visitors. The district has set the target for 2025 on developing and standardizing rural tourism destinations and products, striving to build 1-2 tourism destinations combined with agriculture, culture, craft villages or eco-tourism. In addition, the local government also needs to meet some specific targets, such as 50% of businesses meet the requirements of serving tourists; at least 50% of tourist destinations develop tourism promotion websites; 100% of rural tourism destinations are introduced to domestic and international tourists.

Vice Chairman of Hai Lang District People’s Committee Duong Viet Hai said that the district has planned a rural tourism development program on new style rural area for 2021-2025 with a focus on building and upgrading tourism destinations.

This plan also mentions the development of rural tourism products showcasing local characteristics, as well as developing high-quality rural tourism human resources. Local authorities also pilot models to develop green and sustainable rural tourism. At the same time, agencies ask local residents to build rural tourism associated with agriculture, craft villages, culture and ecological environment for better lives.

Currently, some districts such as Vinh Linh, Gio Linh, Trieu Phong, Huong Hoa in Quang Tri have successfully developed community tourism models with positive results and better income. Rural tourism has brought huge benefits to villages and communes, helping local governments raise budget revenues, creating a premise for upgrading local infrastructure and economic development.

However, rural tourism development in Quang Tri still faces many challenges, such as small and scattered scale, as well as lack of effective methods. In addition, tourism manpower has not been trained well promote local products. In addition, many areas do not recognize the importance of rural tourism or do not know how to promote agricultural effectively.

Another important element is natural disasters thatcause the disruption of rural tourism activities in Quang Tri Province. In order to promote rural tourism, all stakeholders need to focus on effective implementationof rural tourism development In particular, agencies need to increase the application of digital technology in rural tourism development; strengthen domestic and international cooperation on tourism development.
