The Hoa Binh Tourism Company has launched two new three-star cruisers to serve tourists in the Hoa Binh Lake in the northern mountainous province of Hoa Binh , expected to contribute to boosting local tourism.

The ship Hoa Binh 68 with a capacity of 180 passengers and Hoa Binh 86 designed to serve 120 passengers are equipped with modern facilities including bars, music stages, outdoor restaurants and coffee shops.

According to Bui Ngoc Lam, Director of the provincial Department of Culture, Sports and Tourism, Hoa Binh is becoming an increasingly attractive tourist destination.
