Our province has a lot of potential for tourism development. Currently, there are 296 historical and cultural sites in our province.

The routes and tourist sites, especially the national tourism resort ò Hoa Binh lake and Mai Chau national tourist spot have been effectively exploited. The links to form tours, routes, tourist destinations have been strengthened. Building and promoting tourism brands and tourism products have been also focused on.

On that basis, the delegates agreed to propose the solutions for the tourism development such as increasing investment and improving the quality of accommodation, and strengthening the links and cooperation for the tourism development. The values of national culture have been preserved and promoted to sustainably develop the type of community tourism. The brand names for the tourism products have also been actively promoted and set up.
Mr. Nguyen Van Chuong, the Vice Chairman of the provincial People's Committee has emphasized: In recent years, the province's tourism has developed well and has positively contributed to the overall growth of the province. However, Hoa Binh tourism is still developing slowly, which is not commensurate with its potential. In particular, the tourism products are not diverse, plentiful and unattractive.
The Vice Chairman of the Provincial People's Committee has acknowledged and highly appreciated the solutions presented by the delegates to promote the tourism development of Hoa Binh province. The solution is strategic and suitable for each tourism destination. That is the basis for the provincial People's Committee to formulate and promulgate the preferential mechanisms and policies in order to attract investment, mobilizing resources for tourism development and trying to make tourism be a key economic sector of the province.

If in the first 6 months of 2019, the whole province welcomed 1.52 million turns of visitors, then in the first 6 months of 2020, there were only about 1.2 million turns of visitors with a turnover of over 750 billion VND, of which the international visitors were 150 thousand turns. After a period of social gap, tourism has gradually recovered.

Traditional villages possess many cultural values and great potential for tourism development; however, their ways of thinking and creative methods need to be innovated to awaken this potential.
