Preservation of garden houses for sustainable urban tourism – Hue City

Nestled between nature, garden houses can be a prime tourist attraction in the otherwise busy streets of Hue City. Garden houses combine nature, local cultural heritage and tourism making it a perfect combination to promote sustainable urban tourism. Moreover, it helps income generation for the owners and garden workers from the sale of fruits and vegetables from the gardens. Restricting motorized vehicles around the garden houses can provide additional income generating opportunities to the cyclo drivers and street vendors.

This document presents the proposed policy brief and policy statement for Hue city, Vietnam, for the promotion of garden houses for the sustainable urban green tourism. The proposed policy statement was approved by Mr. Ngo Hoa, Vice-Chairman of Thua Thien Hue Province People's Committee for implementation.
