Learning about socio-economic development in Vietnam recently, the issue of livelihoods and sustainable livelihoods has become a research target with many different approaches. Based on the theory of sustainable livelihood framework put forward by the UK Department for International Development (DFID), the article outlines the sources of livelihood capital of local people. With the method of sociological investigation, statistics and data analysis, the article has presented the types of sustainable livelihoods associated with tourism in the Cam Mountain tourist area, An Giang province. This study also wants to replicate the types of sustainable livelihoods associated with tourism in terms of scale and quality to contribute to the economic, social, and environmental development of the locality.
