Hue launches golden tourism week to lure more visitors
Update: Dec 02, 2014
The Hue Monuments Conservation Centre will offer a variety of promotions to visitors during the Golden Tourism Week, which is running from December 24-30, said its Director Phan Thanh Hai.

Regarding promotional packages, tourists can use a single ticket they buy to visit the Royal Palace, Ung Lang (known as Khai Dinh Tomb) and Hieu Lang (known as Minh Mang Tomb) to enter other monuments that require tickets.

Meanwhile, a group of 10 visitors will receive a 20 percent discount for visiting the sites, and those enjoying nha nhac concerts at Duyet Thi Duong Theatre will receive half-price tickets.

The centre will hold a ceremony to greet the two millionth visitor to the Hue relic site this year and the 30 millionth visitor since it was recognised as a world cultural heritage in 1993 by UNESCO.

On the occasion, awards will be presented to three outstanding tourist agencies which have brought the most visitors to the site.

Furthermore, a conference will also be held on the sideline of the week to review the operation of the tourism services at the site.

In the Jan-Nov period, the centre received more than 1.8 million visitors, including nearly 846,000 international ones, generating 129.72 billion VND (6.1 million USD) in pre-tax revenue, exceeding the yearly target by 3.77 percent.
