The event is an opportunity for the northern province of Quang Ninh to promote its image to international friends.
The province, which is home to the World Heritage site of Halong Bay, will host the National Tourism Year 2018 themed “Halong-Heritage, Wonder, Friendly Destination”.
About 100 events will be held during the year by Quang Ninh province, the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism and other localities. Highlights of the National Tourism Year 2018 will include the opening ceremony and Carnaval Halong 2018 in Halong city.
Meanwhile, the closing programme will be held in January 2019 in combination with the opening of the ASEAN Tourism Forum 2019 and the Halong – FLC 2019 open golf tournament.
The head of the local Tourism Department stressed that Quang Ninh is focusing on developing four main tourist zones, namely Halong with the centre being Halong Bay, Mong Cai-Tra Co with border tourism, Van Don-Co To with island and resort tourism, and Uong Bi-Dong Trieu-Quang Yen with the Yen Tu cultural and spiritual tourism site as the main attraction.
Thanks to its clear investment policies, Quang Ninh has attracted a lot of strategic investors in luxury service tourism projects, thus helping change the face of the province and its tourism sector.
To date, some projects have been put into operation and produced effective results such as the Vincom Halong commercial centre, Marina Plaza amusement park, Sun World Halong Park, and the five-star Vinpearl Halong Bay Resort, Wyndham and Hoang Gia (Royal) Hotels.
