Tuan Chau Island from oblivion to a high-class tourist area

  • Location: Tuan Chau Island, Ha Long City, Quang Ninh Province, Vietnam
  • Fee: Free to go to the island, but there are fees for attractions, hygiene, and entertainment
  • Opening time: 24/24

The appearance of the road connecting the mainland to the island has boosted the economy and tourism strongly. That helps bring Tuan Chau from a poor island to become a precious pearl of Quang Ninh. This road facilitates more convenient and faster traffic for tourists from Hanoi and Hai Phong to the island and the international port to visit Ha Long Bay.

The time when Tuan Chau Island welcomes a large number of visitors is on the official holidays, weekends, and during the year from April to October. So when you come here, please pay attention to those times, services and prices can be higher than other periods.

In addition, you need to pay attention that Tuan Chau Island has two ports: Tuan Chau Port 1 and 2.

  • Tuan Chau Port 1 has a convenient anchorage for ships visiting the bay during the day, which can welcome about 200 large and small cruises at the same time. Both pier sides are rows of luxury houses and villas, including a helipad and seaplanes. Also, the ferry port next to port 1 is used to travel to Cat Ba Island.
  • Tuan Chau Port 2, also known as Tuan Chau International Port, is located to the left with an area nearly 10 times larger than Tuan Chau 1 port. Tuan Chau 2 can accommodate 500 large ships at the same time. This anchorage of luxury cruises serves tourists visiting and staying overnight on Ha Long Bay.

Tuan Chau Island aims to build a full range of facilities to become an outstanding tourist area of ​​Ha Long as well as Quang Ninh Province in general.

Thus, the island has tried to develop high-class hotels and resorts, conference centers, dining venues, and cruise ports. All are to promote sea travel and high-class tourism in North Vietnam.

However, with the above development orientation, Tuan Chau Island lacks cheap hotels and amusement parks large enough to compete with other locations and retain guests to stay on the island longer.
