Quang Ninh (VNA) – Chinese tourists entering Vietnam via Mong Cai international border gate in the northern province of Quang Ninh at weekends are estimated to number 10,000 per day, doubling the normal days.

The figure was provided by Head of the Mong Cai Department for Culture and Information Pham Thi Oanh who also added that the tourists went through the gate smoothly.

She rejected inaccurate information about the jammed border gate that circulated on several media networks.

In recent years, the city has arranged a separate area for Chinese visitors, so the customs procedures have been processed quite easily.

At peak time, more border guards are placed to promptly address customs procedures, she added.

The image of congestion on some media networks is in China’s Dongxing city, she said, noting that the Mong Cai international border gate is still clear.

Quang Ninh province has recently launched a number of campaigns to create a healthy business environment for travel agencies.

Violators will be strictly punished.

In 2016, the province welcomed about 1.6 million Chinese tourists via Mong Cai border gate.-VNA
