About Triem Tay village
Only three years ago, Triem Tay village (Dien Phuong commune, Dien Ban district, Quang Nam province) was in danger of being erased on the administrative map because of a severe landslide, thanks to an Vietnamese architect living in French who admired this beautiful village so he designed an ecological embankment to protect Triêm Tây before the big water. UNESCO and the International Labor Organization (ILO) jointly provided villagers with the skills needed to develop the sustainable community tourism. Like most of the Central Vietnam’s villages, Triem Tay only remains the old people because the young people go to the city. However, the foreign tourists are more interested in being guided by the elders.
The attraction of this old village
Towards the end of the concrete road, we entered the three-room house where two of her grandmothers were dying. Before we had a couple of travelers are experiencing the feeling of sitting weaving. She said, in the past, each day, weaving mats only earned thirty thousand VND, now the travel helps her earn double or triple. Even, there were Korean customers after the purchase ordering more products to send to Korea as a gift. It is known that the people here learned the basic business travel, studied English and learned how to entertain guests. When the community cooperatives came into being, 25 households participated and especially the members were all over 60 years old. Co-operative groups are divided into food groups, folk groups, boat crews … The old men and women organized tours by themselves, self guided visitors, self-cooking as well as served other needs of the foreign guests so they seemed to be very interested. There are almost no days the village has no guests coming here.
