The People’s Committee of Binh Lieu district has approved proposals of the two Hanoi-based travel companies named Anytrails Travel Co., Ltd and Authentic Asia on the organization of tours for international tourists in this border district from early 2023.
Accordingly, foreign tourists are allowed to undertake their holiday trips to Binh Lieu from January 1, 2023 within the Binh Lieu’s tourist area recognized by the Provincial People's Committee in November 2020.
As planned, these travel agents will bring the first international groups to Binh Lieu in early January 2023. These visitors mainly come from Western Asia, Europe and the US. Those businesses and relevant functional departments have worked closely to prepare necessary conditions to welcome tourists and carry out licensing procedures for foreign travellers entering border areas in line with defined regulations.
As a borderline mountainous district in the northeast of Quang Ninh, just 120km away from Ha Long City, Binh Lieu shares 43km borders with China, Binh Lieu is greatly endowed by nature with moderate climate and cool weather and fresh air all year round.
Binh Lieu possesses high mountainous terrain with stunning waterfalls such as Khe Van, Khe Tien and Song Mooc. The terraced fields here are called "golden carpets" during the ripe rice season. The immense “heaven” of white reed grass and vast acacia and Ceylon cinnamon forests Binh Lieu have currently regarded as the most mesmerizing views in this district.
Binh Lieu district has also made an impression on tourists due to its own traditional cultural values. A variety of festival activities and cultural and tourism weeks are organized annually such as Soong Co Singing Festival, Luc Na communal house festival, So flower festival, Golden season festival, etc.
Under the project of socio-economic development in ethnic minority and mountainous areas for 2021-2025 period with orientation to 2030, the project on sustainable community-based tourism development, the night-economy development project for the 2020-2025 period, and the planning to preserve and promote cultural values of localities in Quang Ninh province, Binh Lieu District is one of the localities to be prioritised with allocation of development resources.
