The northern province of Quang Ninh received nearly 2 million visitors in the first two months of the year, up three per cent from the same period last year with international visitor numbers increasing by 10 per cent, according to the provincial Department of Culture, Sports and Tourism.

Spiritual relics like Yen Tu Buddhist relic, Ba Vang Pagoda, Cua Ong Temple, and Cai Bau Pagoda attracted the most visitors, it said.

The province's localities have organised art performances and sports and traditional games for visitors.

The province reported that revenues from tourism in the period are estimated at more than VND1.2 trillion (US$53.7 million), a year-on year increase of 14 per cent.

Boasting a 250km long coastline, Quang Ninh is famous for Ha Long Bay, one of the world's natural wonders. Tourists are also attracted by its many beautiful beaches like Bai Chay, Titop, Quan Lan, Minh Chau, Ngoc Vung, and others.
