Drone light show to be performed at Halong Carnival 2024

For the first time, the Halong Carnival 2024 festival will thrill both local and foreign visitors with a unique drone light show taking place in Halong Bay, said the Vietnam News Agency.

According to the provincial People’s Committee, the Halong Carnival is slated for the National Reunification Day (April 30) and May Day holidays at the Ocean Park in Bai Chay ward of Halong City, bringing together thousands of domestic and foreign artists.

First held in 2007, the annual event, set to promote the values of the world natural heritage of Halong Bay, has offered a familiar and favourite venue to both local residents and tourists.

This year’s festival should promote the values of the Yen Tu – Vinh Nghiem – Con Son, Kiep Bac heritage complex, whose dossier has been submitted to UNESCO to seek the world heritage tittle, as well as the typical values of Quang Ninh, the committee said.

The committee noted that there will be nearly 50 cultural, sport and tourism programmes and events at provincial, national and international levels in the province in the second quarter of this year.

Such activities are expected to help Quang Ninh fulfill its yearly target of luring at least 17 million tourists, including 3 million international visitors, and earning 39.1 trillion VND (1.5 billion USD) from the tourism sector.

Halong Bay was recognised as the world natural heritage site by UNESCO twice, in 1994 for its globally outstanding aesthetic values and in 2000 for its geological – geomorphological values.

The recognised area covers 434 sq.km and consists of 775 limestone islets of all sizes – one of the core factors of the heritage’s values.
