NGUYỄN QUYẾT THẮNG & NGUYỄN VĂN HÓA
Ecotourism has witnessed the fastest growth among other types of tourism, and recently been generating substantial revenues for many countries. Although ecotourism has great potentials, it may not necessarily be a mode of sustainable tourism because it can be objected by local communities. As per this fact, a so-called community-based ecotourism has been developed. The present paper aims to synthesize experiences of developing community-based ecotourism in some countries, analyze the operation of ecotourism in the North Central Vietnam (henceforth called NCV),
and then extend some solutions to the sustainable development of the community-based ecotourism in NCV.
