In the first quarter of this year, about 4.85 million holidaymakers including 283,000 foreigners chose Quang Ninh as their tourist destination, according to the provincial Department of Tourism.
Quang Ninh has long been known as one of the top tourism centres in Viet Nam with numerous attractive destinations and diverse tourism products thanks to the province’s efforts to boost tourism’ growth.
This year, the province aims for 15 million visitors, including 2 million foreigners, and a tourism revenue of 32.4 trillion VND (1.36 billion USD).
To realize the target, the authority of Quang Ninh province has taken a range of measures to boost the city’s tourism market, with a focus on projects for restoring Quang Ninh’s tourism industry by 2025, sustainable community tourism development and a master plan for marine tourism management in Ha Long Bay, Van Don and Co To.
The province has sought to improve tourism marketing and develop more tourism products, especially those associated with the heritage and natural wonders of Ha Long Bay, Bai Tu Long Bay, and other destinations in the province.
The Quang Ninh People’s Committee has directed localities to focus on attracting potential investors to develop tourism products, high-class resorts, cuisine areas and food courts.
