Tourism is seen as one of the important factors in improving the socio-economic development in the central province of Quang Binh. In the future, the province plans to develop tourism as a key industry with huge investment in upgrading the infrastructure and changing operational methods.
Over the last few years, Quang Binh has focused on developing their transportation system. The province has built a road along the coast linking famous tourist sites, such as Nhat Le, Quang Phu and Da Nhay beaches, to the Dong Hoi airport.
In May, the province started the construction of a new road, at a cost of VND 180 billion.
To attract more domestic and foreign tourists, the Dong Hoi airport is being upgraded, at a cost of more than VND 212 billion, to receive medium-sized planes.
With support from the Ministry of Transportation, the province spent more than VND 1 trillion to upgrade a 300 km road from the Cha Lo International Border Gate to the Hon La sea port, and foreign tourists from Laos and Thailand can now visit tourist sites in the province, along with caravan tours between Vietnam – Laos and Thailand.
Furthermore, the Dong Duong Company is constructing an 820 ha tourist area, at a cost of VND 253 billion, near the Bang Geyser. This is a high-grade tourist site connecting other sites in the province.
Arriving in Dong Hoi city, tourists will have an opportunity to visit the Nhat Le Bridge, and to stay at high-end tourist areas, such as the My Canh – Bao Ninh eco-tourism resorts and the VND 500 billion Sun Spa resort with high-standard facilities, such as 4 star hotels, asports complex and entertainment spots.
Dong Hoi also has a chain of hotels with more than 2,000 luxury rooms.
As the Phong Nha – Ke Bang National Park became recognized as a World Heritage site, more domestic and foreign tourists have visited Quang Binh.
In the first seven months of this year, the province welcomed nearly half a million tourists. This is a 20% increase when compared to the same period last year. In particular, the number of international tourists has increased by 63.58%. The Phong Nha – Ke Bang National Park received 7,000 visits a day on the occasion of April 30th and May 1st alone.
The province targets to welcome 1 million visitors this year. The tour entitled “Central Region’s Heritage Road” is expected to attract a lot of tourist to Quang Binh.
To reach this target, the province needs to improve promotional programs and quality of its tourism staff. In addition, the province should work together with travel agencies in other provinces to develop tourism.
