(HBO) – Thanks to its charming beauty, Lac hamlet has been dubbed as a "fairy” in the poetic valley of Mai Chau. The programme on new-style rural area building has given a facelift to the hamlet, making it more attractive to visitors.

Lac hamlet in Chieng Chau commune (Mai Chau) has been given a facelift.

Lac hamlet in Chieng Chau commune, Mai Chau district, has become a famous community tourism destination. Over the past years, it has been given a facelift through the national target programme on new-style rural area building.

"Such changes are attributable to the State’s investment as well as the determination, consensus and support of local residents in the new-style rural area building,” said Ha Cong Hong, head of the hamlet.

At the beginning of the programme, the hamlet had met only seven out of the 11 criteria.

Aware of the significance of new-style rural area building, hamlet leading officials have stepped up the communications work, thus raising the consensus among the villagers.

Local residents have contributed land to expanding roads and constructing the sewerage system, and upgraded walls around their houses and gates.

The villagers are delighted at the changes brought about by the programme over the past two years.

Ha Cong Quyet, a local, said the road to the hamlet was once small and the sewerage system had not operated well, adding the upgraded infrastructure has helped the locality better tourism services.

"I have visited Lac hamlet for many times. The hamlet has a beautiful landscape with traditional stilt houses of the Thai ethnic minority group,” said Thanh, a tourist from Hanoi. "When I returned to the hamlet, it has been given a facelift. This is a beautiful, attractive place.”

According to Hong, in 2019, Lac hamlet’s per capita income stood at 32 million VND, 1.76 times higher than that in 2015. To raise the figure, the hamlet has focused on accommodation and catering services, among others. Therefore, the hamlet’s per capita income increased to 54 million VND. The hamlet has fulfilled 10 out of the 11 criteria set for a new-style rural area./.
