QUẢNG NINH – The People’s Committee of northern Quảng Ninh Province has officially launched self-driven tours from Móng Cái City to bordering Donxing in China through the Móng Cái International Border Gate.
Vũ Văn Kinh, vice secretary of the Party Committee of Móng Cái City, said the model would promote cross-border tourism between Việt Nam and China and boost the development of the two localities.
Some 40 tourist cars, of which 20 were from Việt Nam and the rest from China, underwent entrance and exit procedures at the Móng Cái International Border Gate on the first day of the launch (November 9).
Cars under nine seats owned by Vietnamese and Chinese individuals and enterprises will be allowed to enter and stay for no more than three days. The number of cars cannot exceed 100 per day.
In Việt Nam, self-driven cars of Chinese tourists will only be allowed to travel in the area of Mong Cai City, not crossing the Control Complex Station of Km15-Dan Tien Pier. The vehicles are also not permitted to run on National Highway 18C (the border belt road) and military areas.
The Chinese city will set its own regulations.
Hồng Gai Tourism and Services JSC has been assigned to operate the service. The provincial People’s Committee will be in charge of monitoring the execution.
The pilot period will end on January 11, 2017.
The committee will report the results of the pilot service to the government when the period ends. – VNS
