Community Based Tourism (CBT) is an ethical, sustainable model of tourism that empowers local communities in Vietnam to lift themselves out of poverty.
CBT is an award-winning enterprise that helps ethnic minorities, especially women, develop tourism products such as homestays, guided tours, and traditional arts and crafts. CBT brings much-needed income to disadvantaged communities while helping to preserve and share their unique cultures.
A portion of CBT profits are reinvested in the community to fund development projects, such as clean water systems and road upgrades.
