On January 01st, 2016, Quang Ninh has officially launched the new bus route Bai Chay – Tuan Chau to serve people and tourists visiting Halong Bay.
The demand of citizens and visitors
According to the survey, the road from Bai Chay to Tuan Chau is about 30km and in the past, no public buses operated on this road except taxi and motorcycle taxi. Therefore, tourists, especially free tourists wanting to visit Halong Bay will be very difficult to move to the port. If they take a taxi, they must pay a lot of money. That makes tourists not be satisfied.
Foreseeing high travel demands of citizens and visitors with the aim to build Halong as a worthy tourist destination, Phuc Xuyen company has invested in building a special bus route connecting Bai Chay tourism area and Tuan Chau International Port.
New bus route
Mr Doan The Xuyen, director of Phuc Xuyen Company said the bus route includes: old Bai Chay wharf (lighthouse) – Bai Chay Post office – Muong Thanh Hotel – New beach – Night Market (Lotus Hotels – Marine Plaza) – Hung Thang road – Toyota Quang Ninh – International Resorts Tuan Chau – Tuan Chau International Port. The bus runs with frequency of 20 minutes / trip and at rush hours, it will increase to 10 minutes / trip. The ticket prices are from 7,000VND to 10,000VND; the entire route is 15,000VND.
Putting in operation of new bus route of Phuc Xuyen company will satisfy residents and tourists contribute to build Halong’s beautiful tourism image.
