Mang Den town (Kon Tum), surrounded by mountains and cool air, is increasingly attracting attention from young people who like to travel and relax. More and more tourists come to Mang Den, especially during holidays, making it difficult for many people to find a satisfactory stop if they do not book early.

Du Song Linh (Buon Ma Thuot) shared that she did not have many choices at Mang Den due to last-minute reservations. “Originally, I planned to go to the beach on holiday, but I changed my direction at the last minute to travel to Mang Den, so I booked a room late. I found an empty room but I didn’t like it at all,” this young person said.

Guests continuously call to make reservations

According to statistics from the People’s Committee of Kon Tum province, in the first quarter the province’s tourism industry had a positive change with more than 600,000 visitors, reaching 46.18% of the plan to attract 1.3 million tourists. guests at the end of the year.

The number of visitors to Mang Den is increasing day by day but not massively, mainly on weekends and holidays. According to survey by Zingthe homestays in Mang Den are all full on the three main holidays. Some places like Paradiso Homestay receive too many calls a day, so they have to install an automatic response system to notify them that the homestay is full.

Ms. Do Hai Anh, owner of Ventosa Homestay Mang Den, said that a week before April 30 last year, the homestay was fully booked. During this year’s holiday, this accommodation facility has had no rooms left since the beginning of April. Every day, Ms. Hai Anh receives dozens of calls and messages on her fanpage. The most repeated question is tourists asking to book rooms on holidays. .

“The number of guests coming to the homestay is more than last year. Every day I receive about 50-70 calls from customers asking for holiday rooms, from 5am to 1am the next day,” Ms. Hai Anh shared.

Similarly, Huynh Loan, owner of Ylang home – Homestay Mang Den, shared that the homestay has reached maximum room capacity on the holiday of April 30 – May 1, with all rooms booked from the beginning of the month. The number of visitors to this homestay increased by 30-40% compared to last year.

However, homestays in Mang Den are booked full months in advance and often fall into homestays with optimal designs and private rooms. Accommodation establishments that own dorm rooms for group tourists must take the first week or so of the holiday to fill the rooms.

Ms. Nguyen Thuy Trinh, owner of Nha Nha homestay, shared: “Normally, homestays with private rooms and unique designs are of interest to tourists, so they fill up early. Dorm room homestays like my facility will be full for about 2-3 weeks on major holidays. The remaining days are random, in case groups of guests coming to Mang Den do not book in advance, or there are no private rooms available at large homestays, then my facility will accommodate such a number of guests.”

Homestays are springing up a lot, tourism workers are worried

Tourists visiting Mang Den are a positive sign for the tourism industry in Kon Tum province. However, homestay owners are increasingly under pressure to constantly innovate and improve service quality to attract customers. Because, when they saw that Mang Den began to be welcomed by tourists, many people flocked to Lam Vien plateau to do tourism. They buy land and build homestays, helping visitors to Mang Den have more choices.

Ms. Vo Thuy Ai, representative of a accommodation facility in Mang Den, said that in 2022, the number of guests coming to the homestay will be steady, fully booked on weekdays, with a diverse guest file from provinces such as Quang Nam and Da Nang. , Hanoi, Ho Chi Minh City. On normal days, tourists on business trips book rooms at homestays, and some guests from Gia Lai choose homestays to celebrate their birthdays. However, this year, the number of visitors decreased by about 30% on weekdays.

“This year the number of guests at homestays has decreased because Mang Den has many accommodation establishments springing up, plus the economic recession. During the holidays, every year my homestay is full 1-2 months in advance,” this person told Zing.

According to Ms. Ai, Mang Den has few entertainment venues at night, and tourists flock here mostly because of the cool climate. But natural conditions such as climate are one of the difficulties for tourism workers here.

When winter comes to Mang Den, the weather is rainy and windy, the average temperature is about 10 degrees Celsius, visitors to Mang Den tend to stay in their rooms to avoid the cold.

Winter brings hoarfrost, forcing tourism operators to constantly upgrade facilities to avoid mold, and invest in dehumidifying equipment to serve tourists.

Furthermore, because the town is still pristine and does not have delivery services like big cities, it is difficult for tourists to find food outside their accommodation during this season. Reality requires homestay owners to meet the diverse needs of tourists, not simply renting rooms.

Sharing the same opinion as Ms. Ai, Ms. Hai Anh shared that the homestay has funds used to equip furniture to serve tourists in the winter.

“The weather is humid, homestays need to be cleaned continuously, grass grows quickly so pruning work must take place regularly,” this person said.

Although attracting a lot of attention from tourists, Mang Den still does not have many nightlife entertainment activities. Tourists mainly look for restaurants and cafes to check-in and live virtually. At night, Mang Den town is quiet and peaceful. Visitors who are not familiar with the lifestyle here should consider carefully before deciding to visit.
