This morning, October 11, at Hon La port (Quang Trach), the Department of Tourism organized to welcome the first high-class international yacht in Quang Binh.
Luxury yacht Le Laperouse docked at Hon La port
Luxury yacht named Le Laperouse of Ponant (France) brings nearly 100 tourists from countries: USA, France, Germany, Canada, Belgium, Switzerland… The yacht departs from Indonesia, via Singapore , to Vietnam.
During the 39-day journey in Vietnam, the ship will visit provinces and cities: Ho Chi Minh, Nha Trang, Quy Nhon, Hue, Da Nang, Quang Binh, Quang Nam, Ha Long…
In Quang Binh, Le Laperouse will visit Quang Binh 3 times on the days: 11/10, 15/10 and 31/10. The delegation will visit outstanding tourist attractions such as: Thien Duong cave, Mooc spring, Phong Nha cave, Botanical garden, City. Dong Hoi, Canh Duong mural village.
Leaders of the Department of Tourism welcomed the first guests to Hon La port.
Le Láperouse is a high-class cruise ship with a luxurious design, compact enough to access seaports that large ships cannot call. The cost for a cruise on this ship is about 12,000 USD/person.
Cruise tourism is a special type of tourism that brings high revenue and requires high service capacity from travel agents.
These are the first guests to Quang Binh by boat after the Covid-19 epidemic.
Quang Binh has a sea route of more than 116km and many attractive and different natural destinations. However, in Quang Binh, cruise tourism has not been developed like many other localities.
The reception of ships marks an important milestone for the continued diversification and perfection of Quang Binh’s tourism products commensurate with its potential and competitive advantages. This is also a highlight contributing to filling the “gap” in the low tourist season.
Tourists on the cruise come from countries: USA, France, Germany, Canada, Belgium, Switzerland…
The infrastructure of Hon La Port is suitable for ships serving about 150 guests. Currently, the project of Hon La International General Port is being invested with a total investment of more than 2,100 billion VND with 4 docks.
In particular, phase 1 is expected to be completed in 2024, including 1 berth for ships up to 50,000 DWT and 1 berth for ships up to 100,000 DWT.
The reception of ships marks an important milestone for the diversification and completion of Quang Binh tourism products.
When the project is put into use, Quang Binh will be able to welcome large-scale international ships and super yachts to turn cruise tourism into one of the prominent tourism products in the locality conscious.
