The People's Committee of Lam Dong released on February 21 a master plan, approved by Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc, to turn the Dankia - Suoi Vang area into a national tourism site by 2030.
Dankia - Suoi Vang is a forest-lake site spanning about 4,000 hectares in the Central Highlands province's Da Lat City and Lac Duong district.
According to the planning, approximately 760 hectares of the total area will be used for tourism, toward making the location a tourism hub of the region and nation by 2030. If recognised as a national tourism site, Dankia - Suoi Vang will become the second in Da Lat following the Tuyen Lam Lake, which achieved the status in 2017.
The plan focuses on developing cultural, resort, sport and educational zones at the site. It set goals for Dankia - Suoi Vang to welcome some 3 million tourists and earn more than 1.2 trillion VND (51.65 million USD) from tourism in 2025, with the figures increased to 5 million visitors and 3.5 trillion VND (150.66 million USD) in 2030.
Vice Chairman of the municipal People's Committee, Phan Van Da has requested related sectors and localities push for early implementation of the planning. He also directed local departments of Culture, Sports and Tourism and of Construction to prevent illegal construction and land clearing activities on the site.
On the occasion, Lam Dong announced a list of 17 priorised projects on building infrastructure and facilities for Dankia-Suoi Vang tourism development.
