QUANG BINH (VNS) — More than 1.5 million visitors arrived in central Quang Binh Province for its cavern system and burial site of General Giap in the first six months of the year.
An increase of 300,000 tourists compared to the same period last year, according to the provincial People's Committee.
The increase is due to the rise in the number of Vietnamese citizens across the country visiting the burial site of the national hero General Giap in Vung Chua area. The management unit at the site estimated that the general's grave receives 2,000-3,000 visitors per day owing to their love for General Giap as well as the scenic view at the site.
The locality is also a favourite destination to tourists from North American and European countries, Australia, Japan and Korea for its cavern system.
In May alone, 39 caves were discovered by experts from the British Royal Cave Association and the Ha Noi National University's College of Natural Sciences, and these caves are expected to lure more tourists to the province during the remaining period of the year. — VNS
