PSNews – Agritourism projects in Lam Dong are now reopened to tourists under specific regulations and guidelines in the context of COVID-19.

According to the temporary regulations on investment and management of agritourism business issued by the Lam Dong Provincial People’s Committee, in order to be recognized as agritourism site, tourism businesses must meet 4 criteria, including the combination of tourism and agriculture.

Agritourism sites must be run by businesses or cooperatives other than private owners. The Lam Dong authority still prohibits tourism businesses from providing accommodation services in their agritourism sites.

The agritourism site must have a minimum area of 5,000 square meters for Da Lat city, and 10,000 square meters for Bao Loc City and other districts of Lam Dong Province.

Earlier, on January 2021, the Lam Dong Provincial People’s Committee has suspended local agritourism agents from operating agritourism activities due to the lack of specific regulations for management and supervision of this type of tourism.
