Hoang Minh Thang, Director of the Phong Nha-Ke Bang Tourism Centre, said that right from the beginning of this year, the centre has focused on upgrading local tourism infrastructure to ensure best experiences for visitors.

At the same time, it has worked hard to develop and diversify tourism products and services to lure more holidaymakers.

One of the new products is a night tour to explore 4,500m of Phong Nha Cave, along with camping and trekking tours along streams.

Currently, the provincial Department of Tourism is also coordinating with the Management Board of Phong Nha-Ke Bang National Park and relevant agencies to provide adventure tours to explore the national park and local cave system.

Alongside, the centre has focused on developing human resources for the tourism sector by coordinating with local training facilities, while applying measures to ensure food safety, said Thang.

Quang Binh boasts rich tourism resources and is home to the Phong Nha -Ke Bang National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and the world’s largest cave Son Doong.

The province also has the longest coastline in Vietnam, with beautiful beaches and delicious seafood. It was chosen as one of the filming destinations of the Hollywood blockbuster movie “Kong: Skull Island”.

After two years of struggling with difficulties from the COVID-19 pandemic, the local tourism sector has strongly recovered and developed.

This year, Quang Binh aims to receive 3-3.5 million visitors, including 100,000 foreigners, earning 3.4-3.9 trillion VND (144.12-165.32 million USD).
