Xem anh phong to
The northern prov ince of Ninh Binh welcomed over 106,000 domestic and foreign visitors from April 30 to May 4, a year-on-year increase of 10 percent.

The tourism sector grossed 114 billion VND (5.4 million USD) in April and the first week of May, according to the provincial Department of Culture, Sports and Tourism.

This year, national Reunification Day (April 30) and May Day (May 1) were joined with the weekend to make up a five-day holiday.

The stunning Trang An ecotourism complex, which is dubbed as Viet Nam’s ‘Inland Ha Long Bay’, together with the former royal capital of Hoa Lu, the Phat Diem stone cathedral, and the Bai Dinh pagoda - a cluster of Buddhist architectural structures, are among the most popular destinations.

Covering an area of nearly 2,000 hectares, the Trang An scenic landscape site is scattered with karst topography such as limestone mountains, caves and lakes. It is seeking the UNESCO recognition as world natural heritage.

The province is also gearing for the 2014 United Nations Day of Vesak (the day of Buddha's birth, enlightenment and death) which will begin at the spiritual tourism complex of the Bai Dinh pagoda on May 7-11.

The event, the second of its kind hosted in Viet Nam, is expected to welcome about 5,000 guests, including 1,500 from 95 countries and territories abroad.

The Vesak observation in Hanoi in 2008 drew over 600 Buddhist delegations across the globe.
