The welcoming of the first international cruise ship marks a milestone, opening a new turning-point for the tourism industry in Quang Ninh, creating a new space for international cooperation and tourism development.

Speaking at the event, Chairman of the Quang Ninh People's Committee Nguyen Duc Long said the launch of the Ha Long International Cruise Port is an important mark of the QuangNinh tourism industry, creating the most favorable conditions for passenger ships to travel to Ha Long Bay. 

Construction of the port began on November 20, 2017, and, after more than one year of construction, Ha Long International Cruise Port is essentially complete. The VND 1,100 billion-project is a special international cruise port in Viet Nam. The port is designed to accommodate ships of up to 225,000 DWT, with a total capacity of 8,460 people (including passengers and crew), serving two ships at the same time.

It is expected that, by the end of 2018, there will be ten international passenger ships to arrive at Ha Long International Cruise Port.

Quang Ninh Province hopes to welcome 12 million passengers this year.
