QTV - Over years, Quang Ninh has made efforts in protecting Ha Long Bay, making it as a more attracting tourist destination to both domestic and international tourists’ eyes.  The installation of oil/water separators in tourist boats has proved its effectiveness. 

On Aug 7th 2015, Chairman of Quang Ninh People’s Committee asked all tourist boats operating on Ha Long Bay to install oil/water separators. By the end of that year, all 500 boats had completed the order. Besides, they have been obeyed regulations on environmental protection in accordance with Decision 4088 dated Dec 21st 2015 by the committee. Each boat  has trash bins and media to encourage travellers to put trash in right place. Thanks to such measures, Ha Long Bay remains appealing destination for tourists from near and far. In the first 2months of this year, 746,000 tourist arrivals visited the bay, an increase of 27% over the same period last year.
