The Sa Vĩ border information cluster of Móng Cái City was built on a total area of 16,000sq.m, starting from 2009 and completed in October 2013. It includes a square, a monument, and a service area built using the State budget.
The cluster is situated inside Trà Cổ Relic Site, which was recognised as a National Tourism Site by the culture ministry on April 24 last year. This is the first national tourism site in Quảng Ninh and among four national tourism sites throughout the country.

The ASEAN Sustainable Rural or Urban Tourism Products Award is an award of ASEAN honouring the brands of businesses and high-quality tourism products and services in the region.
It is also an opportunity for the units to promote and improve the effectiveness of Việt Nam tourism promotion and the 'Vietnam Timeless Charm' brand.
