Hoi An Old Town is a Sustainability Inspiration

Over the last few years, the central region of Vietnam has been showing a strong commitment towards sustainability practices. The area has implemented strict policies to foster a clean and sustainable environment, which have been endorsed by all suppliers working in the tourism value chain. This not only benefits the region’s popularity and tourism potential, but also improves the local quality of life and protects the natural environment.

Hoi An Old Town, a UNESCO listed World Heritage Center, is one of Vietnam’s tourism highlights. In order to preserve its beauty, historical culture and keep a clean and friendly environment, Hoi An implemented the following practices:

  1. Motorbikes are not allowed in the Ancient Town. Travel in the historic district is by walking or bicycle.
  2. The use of plastic bags and bottles has been reduced significantly. It is common to see the hotels using newspaper in place of plastic bags in the trash bins and replacing plastic bottles with glass bottles for complimentary water.

Vietnam still has a lot of work to do, however, places like Hoi An Ancient Town are a great inspiration to the rest of the country to be fully conscious about ways to promote sustainability. Hoi An is demonstrating that sustainability is also about preserving Vietnam’s cultural heritage for future generations.
