HCMC – The northern province of Quang Ninh is planning to develop tourism products along the 176-kilometer Ha Long-Mong Cai Expressway to spur local tourism growth, the authority told the media.
The Quang Ninh government has told the Department of Tourism to tap the tourism resources of each district along the expressway to ensure tourism will grow 15-20%.
Each district and city will be assigned to develop different forms of tourism, such as spiritual and cultural tourism in Quang Yen District and Uong Bi City, community-based and eco-tourism in the districts of Tien Yen, Ba Che, Binh Lieu, Dam Ha, and Hai Hai and entertainment activities in Mong Cai City.
When this plan is carried out, Quang Ninh can boost tourism and revenue in the province and create more job opportunities for locals.
Mong Cai City welcomed 150,000 visitors on National Day, the highest number since the beginning of 2022, according to statistics from the local authority.
Currently, the famous tourist attractions in the province, such as Tra Co Beach, the central market and the border gate, are always crowded with tourists on weekends.
