Mekong Stories is an online magazine to feature stories from the various Destination Mekong programs, including all stakeholder groups – businesses/ organizations, people/staff, and travelers/residents.
The initial edition of Mekong Stories reflects four years’ work telling the stories of many individuals and organisations working in the GMS’s tourism industry. Mekong Stories is designed to tell the hidden stories in the Mekong Region, introducing people working in the industry that have made a difference and devoted their lives to sustainability, such as Mekong Heroes and Mekong Faces. Stories from businesses, in particular, from the Experience Mekong Collection and Made in Mekong businesses bring closer the human aspect and the social impact created by these enterprises. And finally, stories from travelers and residents unleash real experiences from Mekong Moments, Mekong Minis, and Mekong Memories.
The format of the stories might be in essay format from contributing travel writers and bloggers, to videos bringing the stories to life. A podcast is also in development to showcase industry executives and business owners from the Experience Mekong Collection.
