The northern province of Quang Ninh plans to reopen to international tourists from the first week of next year.

As scheduled, the first delegation from the Republic of Korea will arrive at Van Don international airport on January 7, 2022.

The province has chosen pilot tourism models to serve foreigners, including cruise tour on Ha Long Bay, Tuan Chau international tourism resort in Ha Long, Yen Tu relic site in Uong Bi city, and Mong Cai – Tra Co tourist site in Mong Cai city.

It also named qualified hospitality providers in the first stage, including FLC Grand Ha Long hotel, Tinh Nghia tourism, trade and transportation JSC, and Viet Way company.

Quang Ninh is one of the five localities nationwide to be suggested by the Vietnam Administration of Tourism (VNAT) to welcome foreigners on a trial basis, based on its high vaccination rate, pandemic response capacity and attractive tourism experiences.

Recently, the provincial People’s Council has issued the policy of reducing entrance tickets to well-known destinations by a half, including Ha Long Bay, Quang Ninh Museum and Yen Tu relic site, starting from January 1 to June 30, 2022./.
