There will be two separate new services, one connecting Nanning and the other connecting Beihai – both in China’s southern Guangxi Province – to Halong Bay in Vietnam’s northern Quang Ninh Province, said the provincial transportation chief Nguyen Minh Bach.
There has been an existing bus service since July 2000 connecting Guangxi to the Province, but it stops short of the renowned Halong Bay, Vietnam’s main tourist attraction.
The existing service proves inefficient, as most passengers want a direct connection to Halong Bay, said Mr. Bach. Traveling time for the new services is estimated from 4 to 6 hours.
