QUANG NINH (VNS)-- The island district of Van Don in northern province of Quang Ninh has set its sights on attracting 620,000 tourists to the area this year and become a hub for eco-sea tourism in the north.

To prepare for this summer, the local authorities and travel agencies have spared no expense on advertising campaigns in addition to enhancing and developing tourism services to attract tourists.

According to Le Quang Thach, deputy chairman of Van Don District's People's Committee, the roads in the district leading to central beaches, fresh water and electricity supply have been upgraded.

The small islands' docks have been rebuilt while a larger-scale tourism port has been constructed in the southern port of Cai Rong Town.
