The products made from the red sycamore not only create the diversity of tourism products, confirm its economic value, propagate the Cham island and Hoi An tourism better but also upgrade the trademark and the conservation of this type of plant- an outstanding symbol of the Cham islands. The red sycamore can give signals for seasons changing in the year. When its leaves become yellow and fall, summer is coming. Its flowers are flourishing in autumn. Its fruit is ripe and falling when the dry season ends.
