This makes it easier to monitor, manage and handle issues related to security and safety ensuarance for visitors.This is  the initial basis for sellinng Electric tickets to visit Ha Long Bay for tourists.

 

It is expected that in 2017, free  wireless connection will be covered most of stops in Ha Long Bay. After that, the overnight vessels will be planned for installation. Previously, in April 2012, Vietnam Posts and Telecommunications Group (VNPT) and Quang Ninh-based VNPT started installing free WiFi for Ha Long City. However, until June 1, 2013, Ha Long City began applying the form of charge cards through scratching cards for WiFi users. Accordingly, if tourists do not pay a fee, visitors are only free access to some sites of the province.

 

At that time, Le Minh Ky, Head of Post and Telecommunication Department of Quang Ninh Information and Communication Department, said: "In this project, the province does not give up any budget wile investment capital or cost are invested by VNPT. To regulate the interests of enterprises, in the immediate future investors will apply the form of fees collected through scratch cards issued by VNPT.
