The 2015 Tourism Day of Thua Thien-Hue province kicked off on July 9 with the aim to promote tourism in the central locality.

The two-day event, co-organised by the provincial Department of Culture, Sports and Tourism, hotel and tourism associations and travel agencies, includes a number of activities such as a cuisine festival, a singing competition, a bartender contest, a bicycle race and folklore games.

Director of the Department Phan Tien Dung said the province welcomes 2.5-3 million visitors annually, 45 percent of whom are foreign. The tourist number increases by 13-15 percent year on year on average.

Tourism activities contribute to more than 50 percent of the province’s GDP and create about 10,000 jobs and 20,000 others indirectly.

Thua Thien-Hue targets to receive 4.2 million visitors by 2020, including 2 million international arrivals.
