Quang Ninh to hold 50 tourism stimulus events by year’s end

Quang Ninh province plans to organise 50 events and activities to stimulate travel demand and promote tourism between now and the end of this year.



According to the provincial Tourism Department, Quang Ninh province has built a plan on tourism recovery and tourist attraction for the fourth quarter.

It has also completed a provisional set of criteria for COVID-19 safety evaluation for tourism based on which a safe travel model will be devised to minimise pandemic-related risks to locals and visitors.

Quang Ninh identified safety and risk control as the prerequisite for the local administration, travel businesses, and residents to succeed in implementing the tourism recovery plan because only when safety is ensured can tourism activities be resumed.

Quang Ninh is striving to attract 1.9 – 2 million travellers in the fourth quarter of this year.

The province is endowed with natural advantages for sea and island tourism. It has a coastline of more than 250 kilometres and more than 2,000 islands and islets which account for two-thirds of the total number in Vietnam.

It is home to popular destinations such as Ha Long Bay, Bai Tu Long Bay, Ha Long Bay National Park and some islands.

In particular, Ha Long Bay was recognised twice as a World Natural Heritage site by UNESCO, in 1994 and 2000./.
