QUANG BINH (VNS) — Various activities to promote cave exploration in the central Quang Binh Province will be organised between August 14 and 20, local authorities said at a press conference on August 10.
A workshop to promote investment and tourism will be held on August 14, while a ceremony will be held here on the same day to receive UNESCO's certificate for the Phong Nha – Ke Bang National Park, recognising it as a world heritage site for the second time, thanks to its "stunning biological diversity" and "resplendent landscape".
An art show will follow the ceremony and a firecracker show will take place on the River Nhat Le.
Many new tourism routes will be launched during the above-mentioned days, such as a route to explore the Va and Nuoc Nut Caves; a 10 to 15 per cent cut in tickets to the Phong Nha Cave, the Tien Son Cave, Mooc Streamline and the Chay River – Toi Cave, as well as the Thien Duong Cave; and a 10 to 20 per cent cut for tourist groups.
