A seminar on developing tourism in Van Don district in the northern province of Quang Ninh opened on April 20. The event was co-hosted by the provincial Department of Culture, Sports and Tourism and the Van Don district People’s Committee.

Participants said luxury tourist products can not be offered if the Van Don landscape is spoiled.

According to them, coastal areas and islands should remain intact and untouched, especially in Bai Tu Long Bay.

Tour operators also shared localities and foreigners’ experiences in organising tours. They suggested that Van Don should pay more attention to human resource training and ramp up infrastructure in the district.

In particular, prices of tourist services should be kept stable. Tourists should not be overcharged.-VNA
