Awakening tourism potentials in Duy Xuyen

|

(QNO) - Duy Xuyen district (Quang Nam province) is rich in historical and cultural resources, especially ancient Champa culture with Tra Kieu Simhapura and My Son Sanctuary. The romantic Thu Bon river flowing through the district’s green villages creates enormous potential for ecotourism development. Duy Xuyen is the only place to remain a relic of Nguyen Dynasty, the royal tomb of Doan Quy Phi. The district’s tourism develops by linking closely to that of Quang Nam, Hoi An, Da Nang and Hue cities.
