and development of tourism products in Sept. 2017 in Ha Long City
Quang Ninh Province is investing in constructing Ha Long – Mong Cai Highway which is expected to be completed in 2020 will create a huge motivation for the comprehensive development, notably in the tourism industry. Quang Ninh Province allowed Mong Cai City to speed up the implementation and extension of the tourism route called “2 nations – 4 destinations” to a tourism route “2 nations – 5 cities” including Ha Long – Mong Cai (Vietnam) and Dongxing – Guilin – Manzhouli (China). Along with that, a glass bridge project at Bac Luan Border river connecting with Bac Luan Bridge No.1 which is expected to be built in 2020 will create a new tourism product, therefore boosting the border economic development of the two sides.
With new changes, the tourism development cooperation between the two nations in general and the Tra Co National Tourism Site and localities in China in particular have seen positive breakthroughs, creating a springboard for a strong tourism development in the future./.
