Recently, the Quang Ninh Provincial People’s Council issued a Resolution on a number of measures to support the local tourism industry in 2021, especially for tourists from all parts of the country. Accordingly, the tickets to visit Ha Long Bay or Yen Tu will be reduced by 100% or 50% on New Year or public holidays in 2021.

Vice-Chairman of the People’s Committee of Quang Ninh province Nguyen Thi Hanh said that to lure more tourists to Ha Long Bay following the second outbreak of Covid-19, the province has devised clear strategies. The hotels and restaurants offer discount programs to tourists but still have to maintain the quality of service, she added.
