The number of international tourist arrivals to the city reached 657,600 – an increase of 18.4% – whilst that of domestic visitors hit over 2.36 million, up 19.1%. As a result, the city’s tourism sector earned an estimated 7.8 trillion VND in revenue, an increase of 28.7% against the same period last year, and fulfilling 88.8% of the year’s target.

These include South Korea, Japan, Russia and Malaysia, along with domestic markets like Ha Noi, and the cities of Hai Phong, Ho Chi Minh and Can Tho.
