Overnight visitors to Ha Long Bay enjoy 50% discount on entrance fees
NDO – Quang Ninh Provincial Authorities have decided to offer 50% discount on entrance tickets to tourist attractions for visitors staying overnight on Ha Long Bay from July 10 until September 30.
The preferential policy will continue to create attractive conditions for domestic tourists to experience the overnight service on Ha Long Bay – one of the high-quality and luxury services which were mainly aimed towards international tourists.
There are nearly 190 overnight cruise ships with over 2,000 accommodation rooms on Ha Long Bay. Over 1,200 workers have served for the cruise ships.
Due to Covid-19 epidemic, the number of visitors staying overnight at Ha Long Bay was over 150,000 in the first six months of this year, equivalent to 36% over the same period last year.
The Ha Long Bay Management Board has also coordinated with the departments of transport, tourism and finance and Ha Long City People’s Committee to agree the plan on organising and managing the provision and exemption of entrance tickets to this wonder of the world.
The board has also cooperated with Au Lac Quang Ninh limited company and Ha Long Sun limited company (the management unit of Ha Long International Passenger Port) as well as relevant agencies to provide the exemption and discount of service fees for passengers via the port.
The Quang Ninh Provincial Tourism Department has worked with travel, service and transport enterprises to develop stimulus products and hold promotion activities to attract more visitors.
The timely and effective stimulus policies have helped the provincial tourism sector recover quickly. The number of visitors to Quang Ninh increased sharply in May and June, with an average of 7,000 tourists to Ha Long Bay per day, especially over 26,000 on weekends.
The total revenue from the entrance fees to Ha Long Bay reached VND32 billion in the two past months. As a result, the workers at the hotels, restaurants and entertainment areas have returned to their work.
