Project Mangrove Xuan Thuy
The project has two stages:
Stage 1: Sharing the message with family, friends, acquaintances

COMMUNITY-BASED ECOTOURISM in the buffer zone of XUAN THUY NATIONAL PARK
Being one of five communes in the buffer zone of Xuan Thuy National Park, Giao Xuan has all characteristics of the region with a long coastal line, mangrove forests, large alluvial ground for aquaculture, mild climate, and hospitable people, and the unique culture of Red River delta. All these characteristics give Giao Xuan striking advantages to become a pilot site for development of the community-based ecotourism.
