In contrast to Da Lat, which is known by most travelers, Lac Duong tourism is still growing. Even though a lack of systematic planning distorts many distinctive features, Lac Duong nonetheless evokes strong emotions in tourists thanks to its pure, endowed environment.
With the strengths at hand, Lac Duong has steadily established itself as an excellent travel destination, even though it still has to "rely on" the Da Lat brand to provide a foundation for the roadmap to increase the level of local tourism.
Coming to Da Lat indicates that travelers are genuinely looking for a slow-paced environment in which to unwind and reenergize. It is just an experience and a revelation for Lac Duong. That experience is a journey for each individual to gain greater regard for nature, as well as to understand and preserve the good traditions of indigenous cultural values.

The majestic natural setting, which includes many well-known landmarks like the top of Bidoup mountain, which is known as the "Roof of the Central Highlands" and is located at an elevation of more than 2,000 meters above sea level; Lang Biang, which is Vietnam's ninth World Biosphere Reserve; and the Dan Kia-Suoi Vang tourist area have been given government approval for investment and exploitation.
Particularly, with up to 85% of the area covered by forest, a diversified system of rivers, lakes, waterfalls, and primeval conservation forests with a variety of rare and exotic plant and animal resources, this is truly a "asset". It is crucial that Lac Duong "awakens" and develops into a prime location for eco-tourism, environmental education, recuperation, and farming.

Not only that, but the area of Lac Duong is colored with typical cultural products and indigenous ethnic minority products that have been conserved and modified for many generations, such as the New rice festival, buffalo eating ceremony, traditional wedding ceremony... or traditional crafts like as winemaking, knitting, brocade weaving...
It is simple to determine whether Lac Duong's tourism potential will soon awaken and become a brand. Because the local government has always placed two fundamental concerns with human values, with resolutions throughout the terms, when deciding to develop tourism into a spearhead economic sector of the district in the future.
"In order to improve the lives of the poor, end hunger, and lessen it, tourism must provide the right conditions for their participation in the production of goods. At the same time, preserving the environment is a requirement for all investors," said Su Thanh Hoai, Chairman of the People's Committee for the Lac Duong District.
