According to the provincial People's Committee, the Ha Long Carnival is slated for the National Reunification Day (April 30) and May Day holidays at the Ocean Park in Bai Chay Ward of Ha Long City, bringing together thousands of domestic and foreign artists.

First held in 2007, the annual event, set to promote the values of the world natural heritage of Ha Long Bay, has offered a familiar and favorite venue to both local residents and tourists.

This year's festival should promote the values of the Yen Tu - Vinh Nghiem - Con Son, Kiep Bac heritage complex, whose dossier has been submitted to UNESCO to seek the world heritage tittle, as well as the typical values of Quang Ninh, the committee said.

The committee noted that there will be nearly 50 cultural, sport and tourism programs and events at provincial, national and international levels in the province in the second quarter of this year.

Such activities are expected to help Quang Ninh fulfill its yearly target of luring at least 17 million tourists, including 3 million international visitors, and earning VND39.1 trillion (US$1.5 billion) from the tourism sector.

Ha Long Bay was recognized as the world natural heritage site by UNESCO twice, in 1994 for its globally outstanding aesthetic values and in 2000 for its geological - geomorphological values.

The recognized area covers 434 sq.km and consists of 775 limestone islets of all sizes – one of the core factors of the heritage's values.
