Dongxing, a Guangxi county-level city bordering Vietnam's Mong Cai, has a monsoon-influenced humid subtropical climate. The mild temperature, proximity to Vietnam, well-developed tours and favorable policies are fueling cross-border tourism in the area. In 2018, passenger traffic at Dongxing Checkpoint exceeded 12 million.

Similarly, Fangchenggang, a coastal Guangxi city bordering Vietnam, is also experiencing a boom in cross-border tourism. In March 2018, Fangchenggang was one of only two cities given permission by the State Council to build a national border tourism pilot zone amid efforts to pioneer national tourism reform and innovation. The city received 63,500 China-Vietnam cross-border tourists over the 2018 National Day holiday, a year-on-year increase of 42.17 percent.

The event, sponsored by the Fangchenggang Tourism Development Commission, the Dongxing government, the Mong Cai Municipal People's Committee and Target Tourist & Cultural Development (Beijing) Co Ltd, is expected to give a boost to the tourism sectors in both China and Vietnam.
