Thua Thien-Hue: Tourist arrivals up 16 percent during Tet

Foreigners accounted for 55.4 percent of the total, most of who were from the Republic of Korea (30 percent). 

Overseas holidaymakers during Tet brought up the number of international arrivals to the locality in February to 100,000, up 32 percent from the previous month. 

During the first two months of 2016, Thua Thien-Hue welcomed approximately 470,500 tourist arrivals, including more than 175,700 foreign visitors which represented a year-on-year increase of 6.24 percent. 

It earned over 487 billion VND (21.8 million USD) from tourism, up 5.39 percent. 

The number of foreign travellers to the province by ocean liners was also on the rise. The province’s Chan May Port has greeted six cruise ships, carrying nearly 9,500 passengers and crews, since the beginning of this year. 

Notably, the five-star liner Celebrity Millennium with more than 3,000 tourists and crews on board docked Chan May on February 23, the second time it had anchored the port this year. From here, the foreign visitors will travel to popular beauty spots in Thua Thien-Hue and other central provinces. 

This year, the province plans a wide range of activities to promote local tourism. Highlights include the Festival Hue 2016 from April 29 to May 4, the Hue international food festival from April 28 to May 2 alongside golden weeks of tourism throughout the year.
