The highlight of these events will be art shows, street parades, and a fireworks display which will be held welcome the start of the tourism season for this year.
Hoang Nhat Nam, director of the art programme held at the Tuan Chau international tourist site, said a number of popular local artists, singers, and beauty queens will participate in a grand music programme and fashion shows during the occasion.
As part of the event, Ha Long City have asked the authorities to permit firework displays to be held at three locations, including the Tuan Chau international tourism site, 30-10 Square, and the FLC Ha Long eco-tourism complex.
Most notably, a number of new tourism products have been put into operation ahead of the occasion, including the opening of the Tuan Chau golf course featuring a lighting system at night, the inauguration of Hon Gai public beach, and free entry to a tourist site in the Ba Deo hill area.
Nguyen Ngoc Son, vice chairman of Ha Long City People’s Committee, noted that the participation of numerous corporations, tourism firms, and local authorities is anticipated to boost tourism demand and attract more tourists to Ha Long city, particularly amid complicated developments caused by the global spread of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
This comes as the number of tourists who have booked tours to Da Nang city for Reunification Day on April 30 and Labour Day on May 1 has recovered by approximately 80% compared to the same period from last year.
