Da Bac CBT has gone from strength to strength as the community’s capacity has continued to grow. Tourism infrastructure improves, and more and more visitors come to discover Da Bac.
In 2017, we welcomed more than 2,000 visitors, half of them international. We contributed over 40,000 USD to the local economy and 6,000 USD to the community fund. This has helped to create environmental and infrastructure improvements including village roads, sanitation facilities and incinerators. The community fund is a key element in distributing the benefits of CBT to the whole community.
The CBT’s role is also to help engage the community in decision-making and help to preserve the local cultures. Da Bac CBT does this by holding regular community engagement events, creating art and dance groups, and encouraging women to be active in all processes.
