Vietnam travel is strongly developed with priorities of the government. Every year, the number of tourists visiting in Vietnam is increasing with amazing destinations from the north to the south of Vietnam. Halong Bay is one of the most beautiful landscapes in Vietnam which is recognized as the world’s heritage by UNESCO.

Recently, the decision to collect harbor fee for each tourists who will visit in Halong bay makes big influence to activities of Halong bay cruise. Au Lac company- the owner of Tuan Chau international harbor said that with the fee, they want to improve infrastructure and service of the harbor. The harbor fee is 20,000VND/ one- way/ tourist and it means 40,000VND/ round-trip/ tourist. The fee includes using station and harbor system, free some services like drinks and performances and tourist information, using toilet, Wi-Fi, air-con, health care, etc. The fee is not applied for children under 12 years old.

However, tourism companies and tourists considered that paying fee for each tourist in Halong Bay is not suitable; the fee should be paid by Halong Bay cruises. Some Halong Bay cruises are also surprised by the announcement because they have to pay anchor and parking fees for the harbor.

Although the decision is still discussed between Au Lac Company, Ministry of Finance and Quang Ninh people committee, it makes surprises and worries to Halong bay cruise, tourism companies and tourists. Halong Bay is the most popular destination in the north of Vietnam, so the change will influence in all activities of Halong Bay cruises and Halong bay tourists making negative effects in the eyes of foreign tourists in Vietnam.
