Medicinal herbs such as Ngoc Linh ginseng, elettaria cardamomum, jiaogulan, cinnamon, and paris polyphylla are being planted more and more in Nam Tra My, which is a great interest of scientists and tourists. So, local authorities and people want to carry out tourism services that provide visitors with leisure travels in combination with the experiences in planting medicinal herbs. Besides, visitors can buy the products from medicinal herbs right at the local gardens.
