  • Environmentally-friendly public toilets for Quang Ninh

    Northern Quang Ninh province, home to World Heritage Site Halong Bay, has worked with the Swiss company Mister Loo AG on a plan to build environmentally-friendly public toilets to protect people’s health and the environment. The first toilets are planned to be located in Ha Long, Uong Bi, Cam Pha and Mong Cai, using environmentally-friendly wastewater treatment technology. After a trial run the model will be replicated in other localities in the province. Mister Loo AG pledged that the public facility will bear Swiss construction standards and advanced wastewater treatment technology and will be friendly on the environment and for people.

    Hanoi has built 1,000 public toilets for the local population and tourists visiting the city, given the long-standing shortage of public toilets and the poor state of existing toilets. HCMC is considering similar proposals, one from Mister Loo, to build public toilets.

    Quang Ninh provincial authorities have announced a plan to build a second cable car line on Yen Tu Mountain, famous for its beautiful landscapes and Buddhist heritage. The total length of the two new cable routes will be 2,200 metres. The station will be situated some 500 metres from King-Monk Tran Nhan Tong’s statue and some 600 metres from Dong Pagoda. With total investment of VND650 billion ($2.9 million), the new line will reduce congestion on festive days.

    The Yen Tu complex is located on the Dong Trieu Mountain Range at the intersection of Quang Ninh and Bac Giang provinces. The heritage site is some 600 metres above sea level with a peak 1,068 metres above sea level.

    Authorities in Quang Ninh province, home of the World Heritage Site of Halong Bay, are considering banning dining in caves in the bay after facing opposition from local people who fear that excessive tourism will ruin the environment. Some travel companies arrange parties in the caves of Trong, Tien and Soi Kim, which are widely advertised on the internet, especially on Foody.vn. Groups of over ten people can party in the caves for VND3 million ($136) per person and from VND4 million to VND5 million ($200-250) per person in smaller groups. The province will initially tighten management of such activities in the caves and on the bay and violations will be punished.



    A village in Bai Tu Long Bay has earned a well-deserved reputation for producing some of the world’s most exquisite pearls.
