Ha Long Bay to shut down port activities

All activities relating to loading and unloading of goods in Ha Long Bay will be stopped completely by December this year, announced Dang Huy Hau, Deputy Chairman of the People’s Committee in the northern province of Quang Ninh on October 25.

Mr. Hau said these activities not only mar the beauty of the Bay and make waterway transportation very difficult, especially for tourist boats, but also pollute the environment. After December 2012, loading and unloading of goods will take place at Hon Net Port in Cam Pha City.

Ha Long Bay had become a popular loading and unloading port because of its deep sea level and protection from strong winds.
