YênBái - The second Luc Yen district “Going to Gemstone Land” tourism programme will be held from December 4-6 with a wide range of new and attractive activities.
Khai Trung green plain is a destination for visitors when coming to Luc Yen district.
According to Vice Chairwoman of the district People’s Committee Nong Thu Ha, the programme aims at introducing and promoting the district’s tourism attractions and outstanding tourism products to attract both domestic and foreign visitors, thus increasing the livelihoods for locals.
