Northern province aims to become international tourism hotspot
The northern province of Quang Ninh targets to become an international tourism centre with modern infrastructure and high-quality tourism services, according to a tourism development plan.
The province plans to develop the sector so that it can compete with other regional countries. By 2020, the province hopes to attract 7.4 million foreign visitors and 8 million domestic travelers.
In another development, the Halong City of Quang Ninh Province will organise the second sakura festival from April 11-13. During the festival, many cultural exchange activities between Viet Nam and Japan will be organised. About 40 booths will be set up to introduce tourism products of Quang Ninh and Japan.
