Quang Ninh province is one of the localities in Vietnam that have handled the Covid-19 pandemic, with almost no cases reported in the past three months. Utilising many solutions to catch up with the “new normal”, it is gradually recovering its tourism industry by making domestic travellers a focus.
Visitors are entitled to free tickets to visit Ha Long Bay, the Yen Tu tourism site and Quang Ninh Museum from now until the end of 2021, as well as subsidised bus fares from Van Don airport to Doc Do, Uong Bi City, and vice versa.
Local tourism and travel businesses are preparing the necessary conditions to resume operations as soon as possible and developing programmes to promote safe tourism.
According to the director of the provincial Tourism Department, Ph?m Ng?c Thuy, 50 events are going to be held across the province to stimulate travel demand from now to the end of 2021.
The highlight will be events to welcome visitors to “Yen Tu - An Autumn Journey to Buddha Land” festival, H? Long Bay Heritage Marathon and Winter Carnival 2021.
In addition, the province will also organise events for tourism at the district, town and city level and announce stimulus products to increase tourism.
Thuy said the provincial People’s Committee had a plan for tourism recovery in the fourth quarter. It has also completed a provisional set of criteria for Covid-19 safety evaluation based on a safe travel model devised to minimise pandemic-related risks.
According to Le Tr?ng Thanh, deputy general director of Tùng Lâm Development Joint Stock Company, this is the right time for travel to restart with the involvement of relevant parties.
“We will implement many promotional programmes and discounts for visitors under the conditions of strictly complying with regulations on pandemic prevention and control,” he said.
Tourism is the industry hardest hit by the pandemic, but also one of the fastest to recover. However, in order for tourism to fully recover, one of the prerequisites is to ensure a safe environment.
Recently, Van Don International Airport has obtained Airport Health Accreditation from the Airports Council International. This is an important foundation to open up new opportunities for Quang Ninh tourism to get back on track.
Quang Ninh identified safety and risk control as the prerequisite for the local administration, travel businesses and residents to succeed in implementing the tourism recovery plan.
As a safe destination, the province is spreading the message “Quang Ninh Tourism: Safe - Friendly - Alluring” with the aim of welcoming about two million tourists and earning up to 4.5 trillion dong (RM825mil) from tourism services in
