Glamping sites encroach on Ho Chi Minh City rivers, canals

Several glamping sites are encroaching on rivers and canals in Thu Duc City, an administrative district under Ho Chi Minh City.

Inspectors in Thu Duc have released the conclusion of an investigation into land management and construction in Long Phuoc Ward, pointing out multiple violations in the use of land along rivers and canals.

Many enterprises and household businesses offering catering, lodging, and tourism services have encroached on rivers and canals.

These include many glamping sites, such as Rio Glamping of Long Phuoc Invest Co. Ltd., Vietgiangz Glamping Club, A New Day Glamping, and Savora Farm & Glamping.

Glamping describes a style of camping with a host of amenities and services. It has become a new tourism trend among the young.

Instead of normal tents, glampers stay in special luxury tents, wooden houses or bungalows.

Glamping sites are often developed in areas with beautiful landscapes, such as mountains, forests, beaches, and islands.

Glamping tourism is developing strongly in Vietnam with multiple glamping sites mushrooming in the country’s most famed tourist destinations, including Da Lat, Mui Ne, and Phan Thiet.

The model combines experiencing nature and enjoying services like resorts and hotels.
