Uong Bi city in Quang Ninh is seeking to boost tourist numbers through the use of technology. The city boasts a number of popular tourist attractions such as Yen Tu mountain and Yen Trung lake.
In April, the city launched Dulichuongbi app for smartphones which updates visitors with schedules, estimated costs, and the best times to explore the province’s destinations.
In addition, Quang Ninh province has also upgraded their tourism infrastructure, services, and information technology. Visitors can easily gain access to the internet through more than 100 free Wifi hot spots located in residential areas, Bai Chay tourism site, Tuan Chau, and other destinations in Ha Long Bay such as Thien Cung cave and Ti Top island.
A local resident said free Wifi access has eased the checking information relating to tourism, entertainment sites, restaurants, and streets.
Now visitors can use digital maps to gain information about streets, tourist attractions, and create their own tour schedule. Support utilities will help in guiding tourists through the region’s tourism activities.
