REPORT: Garden houses for green tourism in Hue City, Vietnam

Traditional garden houses of Hue city, Vietnam are a unique urban architecture known for their harmonious design with the nature and are (ancient) examples of passive buildings designed considering local climactic conditions. Though the number of garden houses has fallen from about 4000 households to 2000 households at present, promoting garden houses could be an important option of green tourism and promotion of eco-friendly city.

Garden houses were considered to promote green tourism, given its closeness to nature. This study, Garden houses for green tourism in Hue City, Vietnam, focuses on the income generation from garden houses and the potential for promoting garden houses as a part of green tourism, along with an analysis of the different (future) occupations men and women can be involved in this initiative.
