In the first six months of this year, Hanoi welcomed 650,000 international visitors, an increase of 23% compared to the same period last year, according to the City’s Department of Culture, Sports and Tourism.
Most of these international tourists came from China, Australia, the Republic of Korea, Japan and some European countries.
The City also received 5.83 million domestic tourists in the first half of this year.
From now to the end of this year, the City’s Department of Culture, Sports and Tourism will focus on promotion programs to attract more domestic and foreign visitors.
The Department will cooperate with tourist sites and travel companies as well as functional agencies to open courses on capacity building for their staff.
