A speedboat route from Halong to Cat Ba in Hai Phong, will be operational on April 26th for tourists during the Ha Long Tourism Week 2012.

Over the past years, the demand for travel between Ha Long and Cat Ba has been high and the operation of this sea route will be very necessary for travel agents to build and connect more travel routes, creating more good tourism services to meet tourists’ demand.

At present, Quang Ninh and Hai Phong Department of Transport add more signs and marking buoys to ensure safety for this new route.

Five speedboats, including three 48-seat boats, one 58-seat boat and one 26-seat boat, will be put into service to carry tourists from Hon Gai Port to Beo Station, with a 40-45 minute trip and at a cost of VND150,000 per person.
