New airport for Vietnam’s Ha Long Bay puts the popular destination at extreme risk of overtourism

  • Improved infrastructure makes the Unesco World Heritage Site increasingly accessible, hopes to welcome 16 million tourists in 2020
  • Travellers already complain of overcrowding and rubbish-infested water

Ha Long Bay’s postcard-perfect karst islets have long attracted travellers to its Unesco-approved seascape. In 2017, the destination (population circa 1,500), in northern Vietnam’s Quang Ninh province, welcomed almost 7 million international and domestic visitors, according to website Halong Bay Tourism. The region’s tourism department hopes to receive up to 16 million tourists by the end of next year, “and to rake in VND30-40 trillion (US$1.3-1.7 billion) in revenue”, it states, on its website.

Taking a major step towards achieving that goal, on December 30, Vietnam opened Van Don International Airport, which considerably cuts travel time to Ha Long Bay for overseas visitors. What was once an eight-hour round trip from Hanoi is now just over an hour from an airport that, when fully operational, will connect the bay with 35 cities, including Hong Kong, Macau and 10 in mainland China.

Community-based tourism and new livelihoods in Vietnam

Can Thanh, Vietnam, September 17, 2018

Despite knowing the damage she was causing, Nguyen Thi Vang still walks through the coral reef in the Tam Hai sea to collect seaweed for her daily meals. “When I walk, I heard its broken sound and I feel painful,” said Nguyen. “Yet I need seaweed.”

When seaweed dies it floats on the water. But due to high demand locals pick the seaweed while it is still alive, walking over and often breaking parts of the coral reef. While the harvest season traditionally starts in May, Nguyen and other locals collect earlier. “People from other communes come and if we do not harvest they will collect it all,” said Nguyen.

The History of Hanoi’s Lost Tramway Network

When they first drew up plans for a citywide tramway network in 1894, it seemed as though the Hanoi authorities would follow Saigon’s example by opting for steam traction. Yet, by the time government approval was forthcoming in 1899, advances in technology made it possible to construct the entire system as a state-of-the-art, one-meter gauge electric tramway.

In 1900, the Compagnie des Tramways Électriques d’Hanoï et Extensions (CTEH) was to set up to build the first two tramway lines, which were jointly inaugurated in November 1901. Tiếp tục đọc “The History of Hanoi’s Lost Tramway Network”

A Throwback to Saigon’s Original Tramway Network

As ever-increasing levels of traffic congestion and air pollution turn many of Ho Chi Minh City’s road junctions into choking bottlenecks, many hopes are pinned on plans to construct a new urban railway network in the southern metropolis. Yet urban railways are hardly a new concept in this city, which was once home to one of Southeast Asia’s largest urban tramway networks.

Indochina’s first mechanized rail-guided transportation system was the one-meter gauge Saigon–Cho Lon “high road” steam tramway, operated by the Societe Generale des Tramways a Vapeur de Cochinchine (SGTVC) and opened to the public on December 27, 1881.

Why #SaveSonDoong is larger than just about a cave?

#SaveSonDoong was founded as a campaign to save the pristine charm of the world’s largest cave from mass tourism. But overtime, this citizen-led campaign started to carry more just the mission of saving one cave. In this talk, Lê Nguyễn Thiên Hương, one of the co-founders of #SaveSonDoong will reveal to you what its ultimate goal is actually about. Lê Nguyễn Thiên Hương is an educator by day and an environmental activist by night. She has been working in the field of education for a decade at different roles – a tutor, a teaching assistant, a teacher, a counselor, an admissions officer, etc. On the other hand, traveling has always been a big part of her life. And her expedition to Sơn Đoòng in 2014 has marked a big turning point for her. At the time, Hương was in the process of applying to graduate school for the major of Educational Psychology. But what she found out at Sơn Đoòng has changed her direction completely. Her #SaveSonDoong campaign earned her a scholarship to Brandeis University, where she did two Master degrees in Nonprofit Management and Sustainable Development. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx
