Binh Thuan builds friendly, safe tourism environment
Update: Oct 16, 2013
The central province of Binh Thuan is becoming an attractive tourist attraction for domestic and international tourists, especially those from Russia, China, Germany and the Republic of Korea.

This is attributed to the locality's efforts to build a friendly and safe tourism environment.

In the first nine months of this year, Binh Thuan received over 2.5 million tourists, earning more than 3.6 trillion VND (196.2 million USD).

This is the result of the province's investment in developing its tourism sector, regarding tourism as a key industry to promote local socio-economic development.

The province has spared no efforts to remove beggars and peddlers from key tourist attractions, asking businesses and households that provide tourism services to say no to raising prices irrationally.

In spite of unfavourable transport facilities such as the lack of an airport and seaport, Binh Thuan has seen a steady increase in the number of international tourists since 2006.

In the coming time, the province will contribute greatly to Vietnam's target of a two percent annual increase in the number of Russian tourists, hoping to receive 350,000 visitors from the country by 2015.
