Mr. Joe Lewis loves the way of making tourism of Con Son people
For example, after the incident of Mr. Joe Lewis, the British billionaire returned to visit Can Tho for the second time and enjoyed the folk cake at Con Son is a typical example from the way of making community tourism of the people here. Because to make many kinds of cakes for customers, only the family of Bay Muon artisans can make folk cakes, having their own taste according to the traditional recipe.
However, the development of the community based tourism industry needs to have a good orientation, avoiding overloading tourists at peak periods, but still ensuring revenue from tourism.
