In the 19th session of the Quang Ninh People’s Council on September 8, the Council decided to adjust and supplement a number of solutions to support tourism demand stimulus in 2020.

Accordingly, the locality will reduce 50% of entrance fees and overnight stay prices on Ha Long Bay.

At the same time, onshore attractions such as Quang Ninh Museum and Yen Tu tourist attractions are also discounted from September 9 to December 31.

In addition, free overnight stay will be offered for tourists staying at accommodation locations on Ha Long Bay on major holidays such as October 20 (Vietnamese Women’s Day), November 12 (the traditional day of mining workers and traditional day of the coal sector), November 20 (Vietnamese Teachers’ Day) and December 22 (the founding day of the Vietnam People’s Army).

This stimulus package is worth VND100 billion.

Deputy Head of the Management Board of Ha Long Bay Pham Dinh Huynh said that for nearly one month, each day, Ha Long Bay has about 100 tourists hiring boats to visit tourist attractions. Before the COVID-19 pandemic, Ha Long Bay greeted nearly 10,000 tourist arrivals a day with more than 500 boats operating at full capacity./.
