Southernmost Ca Mau province has mapped out a plan to pour VND1 trillion (US$63.3 million) into infrastructure development for tourism from now to 2010, focusing on eco-tourism projects, according to local authorities.
About half of the money will come from Government bonds and the remainder from other resources, they said.
Key construction will include building a 50km “black soil” road linking Nam Can district and Ca Mau Cape site through a mangrove forest; building a concrete road between the National Park of Ca Mau Cape and Khai Long-Dat Mui; upgrading the Co Xang – Hon Da Bac road; building a square and symbol for Ca Mau cape and upgrading the National Defense Airport.
Besides, a series of transport systems linking provincial roads to local landscapes, particularly U Minh cajuput forest and Ca Mau mangrove forest will also be improved.
In addition, tourism products will be diversified toward water eco-tourism and accommodation systems will also be upgraded.
Ca Mau is considered as the southernmost pole of Vietnam. The province is famous for mangrove and cajuput forest and diversified ecological system.
