Ha Long Bay in the northern province of Quang Ninh has seen robust tourism recovery, sparking hopes that the bay’s tourism revenue would return to pre-COVID-19 pandemic levels.

According to the Ha Long Bay Management Board, the bay welcomed around one million tourists, including 810,949 foreign arrivals, in the first four months of this year. Ticket sales for the bay earned an estimated VND321.8 billion (USD12.91 million) between January and April.

Ha Long Bay served 84,744 travellers, including 26,526 foreigners, during the five-day Reunification Day (April 30) and May Day holiday.

Ha Long has seen a surge in foreign arrivals, mainly from South Korea, India, Malaysia, and Europe.

Ha Long Bay’s tourism revenue could surpass this year’s target of VND800 billion and reach a record-high revenue of nearly VND1.2 trillion in 2019.

Quang Ninh wants to attract 17 million travellers this year. The province has launched many new tourism products for Ha Long and Bai Tu Long bays.

Ha Long Bay served 2.69 million tourists and earned VND792 billion last year.
