A culture and tourism week entitled “Cai Chien Island Welcomes Summer 2017” will be held on the island of Cai Chien in Hai Ha district, northern Quang Ninh province, on June 9-15.

The event will include a series of tourism promotion activities such as music shows, an MC competition, a one-commune, one-product (OCOP) trade fair, and beach sports, among others.

According to the Hai Ha District People’s Committee, full preparations have been made to welcome tourists during the summer season.

Since the beginning of this year, the island has been visited by more than 8,900 domestic and international tourists. During the four-day national holiday from April 29 to May 2, it welcomed approximately 6,000 tourists.

Cai Chien Island is famous for its wild and peaceful scenery with unbroken green space. The island has 500 ha of pristine forest with many ancient trees and wild animals, such as monkeys, wild pigs, pythons, and numerous bird species. Protecting the forest ecosystem is considered a top priority by local people and officials.

The eastern side of the island has a romantic atmosphere, with a long, white sandy beach. The beach in the Dau Rong area is the largest, covering 2 sq km. Along the beach are lines of casuarinas. After swimming in the afternoon, tourists can enjoy relaxing moments on hammocks under the casuarinas, with the rhythm of the sea whispering in their ear.

Quang Ninh province is calling for investment from individuals, businesses, and organizations to develop the potential of the island to the fullest.
