Bookmark and Share

The northern province of Quang Ninh, home to stunning landscapes and important historical relics, launched a competition to find a new tourism slogan and logo.
The province is highly attractive for tourists, boasting Ha Long Bay, Bach Dang and Yen Tu relic sites, and a number of international border gates.
This year, the province is expecting 7.5 million tourists, including 2.8 million international visitors. By 2030, the province hopes to become a world-class tourism hub offering modern infrastructure and impeccable services.
The competition runs until April 14, 2015, with the best 30-50 entries exhibited publicly and put to a vote.
Recognised as one of the seven natural wonders of the world in March 2012, Ha Long Bay has recorded 28.8 million arrivals since 1996, including 14.2 million international tourists and generating over 1.4 trillion VND (67 million USD).
To maintain Ha Long Bay’s status, Quang Ninh has undertaken maximum efforts to protect the surrounding environment. All industry, mining and mass transport are located outside of Ha Long city centre.
Waste is taken ashore for treatment, while cruise operators have become more environmentally-conscious.
So far, the province has implemented 65 environmental projects worth more than 500 billion VND (23.8 million USD), and most of them are proving successful.
The locality is working on a detailed master plan on Ha Long Bay management and projects to assess its water quality and biodiversity.
Recently, Quang Ninh called for more foreign investment to protect the bay from pollution..
