NDO - Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc has approved a master plan for the Ban Gioc waterfall site and detailed planning for the central area of the tourist site in the northern province of Cao Bang.

The plan aims to turn the Ban Gioc waterfall tourist site into a key tourism site of Cao Bang and the nation, contributing to boosting the socio-economic development of the province and the region in association with national defence and security.

Under the plan, the Ban Gioc waterfall tourist site will cover a total area of 1,000 ha while the central area of the site will cover 156.7 ha.

The tourist site is expected to welcome approximately 750,000 visitors per year and will have more than 1,000 lodging-rooms for tourists by 2020. By 2030, the tourist site is estimated to receive 1.2 million visitors and will have some 1,750 lodging-rooms for visitors.

The central area of the Ban Gioc waterfall tourist site will have four areas including the Ban Gioc waterfall landscape; the landscape along the Quay Son River; the mountainous forestry landscape ecology and the agricultural landscape ecology.

Accordingly, the Ban Gioc waterfall landscape has a total area of roughly 20ha, the landscape along the Quay Son River covers 22ha and the agricultural landscape ecology has an area of 31ha.
