Travel company consortium the Vietnam Travel Group (VTG) organized its 2019 program of volunteer garbage collection and charity activities entitled “Sharing Love” in Quynh Son commune, Bac Son district, in northern Lang Son province on January 5. Many gifts and wishes from the travel companies were also presented to disadvantaged households in the hope they will have a happier Tet - the traditional Vietnamese Lunar New Year.

“Bac Son is a mountainous district in Lang Son province that has only offered tourism services in the last two years,” said Mr. Hoang The Vinh, Head of the district’s Department of Information and Culture. “In order to implement government guidelines to turn tourism into a key economic sector, the district has focused on preparing a tourism development plan for the 2017-2020 period with a vision to 2025, to make Bac Son an attraction on the national tourism map. Bac Son Valley is one of the most beautiful in Vietnam and has a great deal of development potential, resembling a ‘sleeping beauty’. I hope that travel companies will help Bac Son grow.”

The mountains surrounding Bac Son Valley are incredibly high, at about 500-1,200 meters, creating a scenic landscape best seen from the peak of one of the mountains located just a few minutes from the town.

On behalf of the VTG delegation, representatives from the Hanoi Tourism Corporation said that the volunteering and charity program is a meaningful activity for people working in the tourism field. Through this, the travel consortium wishes to share both spiritual and material gifts to local people in Bac Son and at the same time help its tourism sector develop, accompanied by VTG and local travel companies.

VTG is a consortium of travel companies including Tien Phong Travel, Postum Travel, VietCharm Tour, ANZ Travel, VNA Travel (Vietnam America Tourism and Event Jsc.), and the Hanoi Tourism Corporation (Hanoi Tourist).
