HCMC – Vietnam and China have initiated trial tours of the Ban Gioc-Detian Waterfalls, situated in the border area between the two nations.
This trial operation, which began on September 15, marks a significant step toward the official opening of the Ban Gioc-Detian waterfall tourist sites. The trial period will run until September 14 next year.
Notably, Vietnamese and Chinese citizens can visit this destination without the need for a visa. Instead, they must make advance reservations for group tours comprising fewer than 20 people. Each group is allowed a maximum stay of 5 hours on the opposite side and is prohibited from overnight stays.
In the initial three months of the trial operation, no more than 10 tourist groups will be permitted to cross the border each day. This opening is exclusively available to travelers from Vietnam and China and is not accessible to visitors from other countries.
The pilot launch of Ban Gioc-Detian waterfalls aims to strengthen the peaceful relationship along the Vietnam-China border, promote cultural exchanges, and foster partnerships between localities in both countries.
Ban Gioc Waterfall, situated in Dam Thuy commune, Trung Khanh District, Cao Bang Province, has received multiple accolades as one of the world’s most stunning waterfalls.
