The home to Ha Long Bay, one of the first Vietnamese heritages claimed by UNESCO, Quang Ninh is famous for attracting tourists for a long time. But apart from the elegant stones of Ha Long Bay, Quang Ninh also has Tuan Chau Island with a road from the town straight to the island, a white sand beach with plenty of entertainment services for visitors. And should guests want something more adventurous and wilder, they are supposed to have a trip to Co To island with natural beauty and very few traces of man-made objects found here. Another noted place is Cua Ong Temple in Hon Gai, which worship Tran Quoc Tuan’s son: Tran Quoc Tang who is considered as the god of all Quang Ninh people.
