Hanoi fast tracks tourism

Hanoi city’s tourism authority says it will use tourism a to fast track economic growth in 2014 through a buoyant domestic tourism business and investments in new projects.

According to a domestic tourism promotional plan, the city’s Department of Culture, Sports and Tourism will offer new tours, promote tourism connections between Hanoi and other towns and attract more tourism related investment in the capital.

Developing tourism with other provinces has already resulted in signed cooperative deals with Bac Giang, Lang Son, Tuyen Quang and Ha Giang.

Hanoi will continue to cooperate with France’s Ilde to study how to build and open a Hanoi craft village as a new attraction for international tourists.

The city plans to attend ITB Asia Singapore, later this year and organise road shows in Tokyo, Japan and east Europe (Poland, Czech and Hungary).

Hanoi Department of Culture, Sports and Tourism director, To Van Dong, said: “Apart from tourism promotion activities, Hanoi will invest in tourism infrastructure and improve the quality of tourism services in cultural heritages such as Ngoc Son Temple, Hoan Kiem Lake, Hoa Lo Prison historic site and Van Mieu – Quoc Tu Giam to attract more tourists.”

Hanoi’s Department of Culture, Sports and Tourism will ask the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism to set up a scheme to develop Ba Vi – Hai Stream into a national tourism area by 2020.

Last year, the city received 2.58 million foreign visitors increasing 22.9% in 2012 and nearly 14 million domestic visitors improving 13%.
