Kayak services on Ha Long Bay in the northern province of QuangNinh will resume from May 1.

The provincial authorities have agreed to add kayaking into the list of tourist products in Ha Long Bay, which are available in eight tour routes.

Tour operators were asked to ensure safety for tourists while the Ha Long municipal People’s Committee must issue regulations on safety requirements for kayaks and small boats. Only those meeting requirements and signing contract with the municipal authorities are eligible to offer kayak services.

Ha Long Bay currently boasts more than 1,400 kayaks, 33 high-speed canoes, 108 small boats using oars and several aquatic entertainment activities.-VNA
