The central province of Thua Thien-Hue welcomed over 2.1 million tourists in the past eight months of this year, including 735,900 foreigners, up 1.32% compared to the same period last year.

These tourists added to the locality’s tourism industry revenue over VND1.88 trillion (about US$85 million), a year-on-year increase of 4.18%.

Notably, the world’s third largest cruise ship Voyager of the Seas carrying more than 3,600 passengers docked at Chan May Port in the locality in August for the first time.

Currently, the Chan May port is increasing its wharf from 310m to 360m with the aim to serve 13 ships with about 30,000 tourists from now to the year-end.

The province plans to launch air routes connecting Hue city with other localities in the region as well as intensify internal and external collaboration and promotion activities to boost tourism.

The Hue Monuments Conservation Centre will offer a variety of promotions to visitors during the third Golden Tourism Week in 2015, which is running from September 2-9.

The Tourism Week event is expected to attract about 2 million tourists to Hue ancient imperial relic sites.
