Ha Long Bay, Magnificent World Wonder

Halong Bay, a UNESCO World Heritage, is famous for its emerald green water, numerous islets, mysterious caves and water activities. The area has recently seen a surge in property and hotel development given that it is the top travel destination in Vietnam but has a severe lack of quality accommodation. With massive investments in resort residences, world-class casinos, amusement parks and infrastructure, Halong Bay will see further increase in tourism over the coming years.  




Quang Ninh Province, with Halong Bay being the region's main economic source, has the fastest fiscal growth in Vietnam. In 2016, the GDP reached 10.1%, higher than the country's GDP of 6.3%. The annual GDP per capita was relatively high at $4,095 USD. The region’s main economic sectors include construction at 52%, tourism at 41.2% and agriculture-fishery at 6.8%.

In the first 10 months of 2016, more than 2.58 million tourists visited Halong Bay, a surge of 21% year-on-year. The city aims to achieve an average annual growth of 12 to 14% by 2020, becoming a center of seaborne commerce.
