Around 20,000 people flock to Ha Long Beach near Vietnam’s world-renowned Ha Long Bay in the northern province in Quang Ninh on April 30, according to official provincial data. Overcrowding was the story at many tourist destinations across Vietnam as people enjoyed a four-day break that started on the final weekend of April to mark Reunification Day and Labor Day on May 1.
