QUẢNG NGÃI – More than 3,000 tourists visited the island Lý Sơn district, 30km off the coast of the central province over three days of vacation.
The Sa Kỳ port managing board said it had called for more boat trips to carry overloaded tourists visiting the island over the weekend.
A boat trip just provides 250 seats, and hundreds of tourists could not buy tickets for a sea trip from the mainland to the island.
The island has been a favourite destination in the province in recent years.
Last year, the island hosted 2,500 tourists during May Day and the country’s Liberation Day (April 30).
The island has 18 hotels and guest houses and home-stay service with total 1,000 rooms.
Lý Sơn had attracted 22,000 tourists in the first quarter this year. In 2015, some 100,000 tourists had visited the island. — VNS
