Boat racing festival always attracts large numbers of visitors along the banks of Ca Ty River.

This year is also the year Binh Thuan hosts the National Tourism Year 2023 with the theme “Binh Thuan – Green convergence”, so the Boat Racing Festival on the Ca Ty River is considered one of the activities to respond to the National Tourism Year 2023.
