The central province of ThuaThien-Hue welcomed more than 2.65 million tourists, including more than 935,000 foreigners, in the Jan-Nov period this year, up 9.13% compared with the same period last year.

The tourist sector posted VND2.5 trillion (US$118.4 million) in turnover during the period, a year on year increase of 14.86%. 

The figures show that the province’s targets set for 2014 at 2.85 million visitors and VND2.7 trillion (US$128.6 million) of revenue are within reach. 

In the coming time, the province will continue to offer more products and services as well as a variety of promotions to attract more tourists. 

A Golden Tourism Week will be held from December 24-30 in the Hue relic site with many discount packages. 

The provincial Department of Culture, Sports and Tourism is implementing a US$230,000 project on developing sustainable and responsible tourism which is funded by the International Labour Organisation (ILO) and the United Nation’s Education, Science and Culture Organisation (UNESCO). 

The project aims to promote the ancient ThanhToan bridge in Thanh Thuy Commune, Huong Thuy district, as a tourist site through developing sight-seeing tours and training locals in service and business skills.
