Revenue from the "smokeless industry" that contributes to the budget of Ninh Binh province in 2019 reaches VND 3,600 billion, up 12% over the same period in 2018.

Ninh Binh expects to welcome nealy 8.0 million tourists in 2020

Ninh Binh province, which is hosting the 2020 National Tourism Year, strives to welcome about 7.8 million tourists in the year, including approximately one million foreigners. 

The 2020 National Tourism Year will feature the theme “Hoa Lu – ancient capital of a thousand years” with 27 activities, including Bai Dinh pagoda festival – which is scheduled to open on January 30, Hoa Lu festival from April 1-3, and Trang An festival from April 10 to late May 2020.

The Miss Capital ASEAN 2020 final round, the “Yellow Tam Coc - Trang An” tourism week, an international workshop on “xam” singing, a music exchange between provinces having world heritages and twinning localities at home and abroad, the second Trang An marathon tournament, and Ninh Binh trade and tourism fair are also among the planned events.

Ninh Binh is home to Trang An Landscape Complex - which is recognised by UNESCO as the world’s mixed cultural and natural heritage, the first of its kind in Southeast Asia

This is an extremely important condition, and a decisive factor for Ninh Binh tourism to break through on domestic and foreign tourists, bringing Ninh Binh tourism to a new step. 

The province is home to Trang An Landscape Complex - which was recognised by UNESCO as the world’s mixed cultural and natural heritage, the first of its kind in Southeast Asia.
