TOURISM CONSULTATION

1. Community tourism consultancy service

For the last 2 decades, the development of rural and community-based tourism has been receiving great attention by many international organizations and governments. The development of the mentioned types of tourism offers great opportunities to eliminate hunger and reduce poverty as well as socio-economic development for the communities taking part. 

Community Tourism plays an integral role in the development of the local communities in the buffering zones of national parks and nature reserves, contributing to promoting development as well as reducing economic pressure for these sites via tourism. 

Moreover, Community Tourism also contributes to reducing, and eliminating illegal hunting, and exploitation inside national parks and natural reserve areas, by providing income and occupations. 

Furthermore, developing this type of tourism can enhance local people’s education and knowledge and raise their living standards.

There have been many projects funded by the Government, organizations and investors in Community-based Tourism in rural areas in the Greater Mekong sub-regions for the past few years. 

There are successful cases in developing local tourism, creating more jobs and stable income for the local people. However, there are cases that did not meet expectations due to subjective and objective factors.

2. Ecotourism product development

Green tourism or Ecotourism is becoming more and more common and in the spotlight around the world. Especially, ecotourism has become a focal point of many local areas and countries around the world following the COVID-19 pandemic.

OneStep has been a pioneer consultancy unit assisting Oxalis Adventure in Quang Binh Province in building ecotourism and adventure tourism products for the past 10 years. Oxalis tourism products have been attracting national and international tourists. In particular, the Son Doong Expedition Tour to the biggest cave in the world, is always in demand, and fully booked a year in advance. Other tours such as Tu Lan, En Cave, Va Cave are products that attract a large number of visitors from across the globe.

Beside operational training activities, local community training, and assistance in supply chain service for the visitors, OneStep always emphasizes supporting local areas to create unique tourism products to attract visitors. When consulting on tourism products OneStep aims to build the connection between the tourism development unit and the local community. Our approach is to make the unique product as the foundation for attracting tourists, while the local community joins as an unbreakable supply chain for the tourism product.

By building up the number of unique tourism products, a greater amount of tourists will be drawn both nationally and internationally, contributing to socio-economic development, the state budget, as well as assisting Community-based Tourism development.

Oxalis tourism activities have contributed to creating direct occupations for more than 500 local people and thousands of indirect ones in Quang Binh Province. Oxalis tourism products contribute to Quang Binh Province’s state budget.
