The Department of Finance of northern Quang Ninh province has posted prices of boat tours and boat accommodation for visitors to Ha Long Bay.

The prices are off-peak and may be subject to an increase of up to 30 percent during peak periods, such as Saturdays, Sundays, holiday seasons and the tourist season.

Operators were required to post peak season prices on their tour boats and advertise them in the media.

The announcement of the prices was aimed at re-aligning business travel operators in the province, to combat losses in revenue and to prevent overcharging.

Earlier, the local People's Committee requested all documents of boat tours in the bay to be publicised in the media. Tour boat and accommodation boat operators must declare their prices to the Department of Finance to ensure they are within the allowable rate./. VNA
