The city’s authorities have set out a plan to conduct measures to stimulate and recover tourism activities in the upcoming months of this year with the COVID-19 pandemic under control.

Many practical events are expected to be held such as the awards ceremony for a clip and photo contest on Mong Cai’s tourism in association with cultural and artistic activities and introduction of One Commune – One Product products of the locality; a contest honouring women with Ao Dai (Vietnamese traditional long dresses); the inauguration of Hong Van ecological garden; a singing festival for residential areas; Hai Son ethnic groups’ cultural, sports and tourism festival; the Mong Cai City Sports Festival; and a programme to welcome new year 2022.

In order to ensure the implementation of the "dual goal" of preventing COVID-19 pandemic while recovering tourism, Mong Cai City is focusing on giving two doses of vaccine against COVID-19 to all locals.

By September 23, 99.75% of eligible people aged 18 and over were covered by COVID-19 vaccination, including 31,960 injected with two doses and 43,308 receiving first doses.

The city has also reviewed, updated and promptly added new policies and information to the plan as well as regularly inspected the development and implementation of the COVID-19 prevention and control regulations at business service establishments.

Mong Cai City is developing a variety of tourism products; accelerating the completion of tourism projects; training tour guides at tourist attractions; and boosting tourism promotion with the messages “Mong Cai Tourism with safety, friendliness and attraction”, “Quang Ninh people travelling Quang Ninh” and “Vietnamese people travelling Vietnam”.

In the immediate future, Mong Cai is focusing on attracting intra-provincial tourists while preparing plans and conditions to welcome inter-provincial and international tourists as permitted by the Government and Quang Ninh Province.
