Thua Thien-Hue province will join hands with Chinas Guangxi province to open a sea tourism route linking Guangxis Beihai city and the ancient capital city of Hue.
The new sea travel route will depend on the expansion of the existing route between Beihai and Ha Long Bay in Quang Ninh province. Cruise liners would sail to Hue after stopping over in Ha Long Bay when the route is open.
The Director of the Thua Thien-Hue Tourism Department, Vo Phi Hung, said tourism officials and businesses in Beihai had surveyed the route. Two cruise ships from Guangxis Beihai take turns travelling to Ha Long Bay each day.
Another route from s HainanIsland to Ha Long Bay began last December.
