The northern province of Quang Ninh, the host of the National Tourism Year 2018, is focusing on four types of tourism products, namely sea and island tourism, cultural and spiritual tourism, community-based tourism, ad border tourism.

The locality welcomed 4.6 million tourist arrivals in the first quarter of 2018, up 21% against the same period last year, of whom 1.3 million are foreigners, up 8%. It earned over VND7.3 trillion (US$320.4 million) from tourism, a year-on-year rise of 24%.

In the period, the tourism sector well organised festivals, resulting in an increase in the number of visitors to relic sites and tourist attractions.

Drastic measures were taken to detect and solve any violations in holding and managing festivals and celebrations.

The sector also organised regular inspections at key tourist sites such as Tuan Chau international cruise port, Dai Duong park and Quang Ninh museum. A hotline is also available around the clock to timely receive tourists’ complaints.

Thanks to these moves, Quang Ninh is becoming a safe, friendly and attractive destination to not only domestic and foreign tourists.

The province, home to the World Heritage site of Ha Long Bay, is the host of the National Tourism Year 2018 themed “Ha Long-Heritage, Wonder, Friendly Destination”. It is projected to host at least 51 cultural, sports and tourism events throughout the year.

Highlights include the opening ceremony and Carnaval Ha Long 2018 in Ha Long City, which is scheduled for April 28. 

The province hopes to welcome 12 million visitors this year, including five million foreigners, and earn VND22 trillion (US$968 million).

In 2017, it accommodated 9.87 million arrivals, including 4.28 million foreigners, up 18% and 23% year on year, respectively.

The sector earned over VND17.88 trillion (US$786.9 million), up 30% year on year, and contributed VND3.2 trillion (US$140.8 million) to the State budget, accounting for 11.9% of the local budget collection.
