Hanoi exerts efforts to boost tourism development

ANN/VIETNAM NEWS – The tourism sector of Hanoi has worked hard to step up linkages with other localities nationwide to diversify products and improve the quality of tourism services, toward attracting more holidaymakers to the capital city.

Since the beginning of 2023, Vietnam has seen a significant rise in the number of tourists.

Hanoi alone welcomed more than three million visitors in January and February, an increase of 2.8 per cent compared to 2022. The figure included 535,000 foreign tourists.

In February, hotel occupancy in Hanoi was about 56.2 per cent, up by 39.5 per cent over the same period in 2022. The total revenue from tourists reached VND13.2 trillion, 3.6 per cent higher than that last year.

Tours featuring destinations in Hanoi are always connected with other tourist attractions such as Ha Long (Quang Ninh), Sa Pa (Lao Cai), Trang An (Ninh Binh), and Moc Chau (Son La).

Such tours are suitable for tourists nationwide, especially international visitors who are here on extended travel time.

In recent years, Hanoi’s tourism sector has organised tourism connection programmes in Quang Binh, Binh Dinh, Ho Chi Minh City, Kon Tum, Dak Lak, Ninh Binh, and Ha Nam and Quang Ninh, northern mountainous and Mekong Delta localities, attracting the participation of many travel agencies. This year, it focusses on developing package products to stimulate tourism demand through the air transport connection.

It has signed tourism development cooperation programmes with localities in the southwest region, the Hong (Red) River Delta, and the northwest region.

According to Director of the Municipal Department of Tourism Dang Huong Giang, in 2023, the city will concentrate on developing regional linkage products, MICE (meeting, incentive, convention, exhibition) tourism, weekend tourism, urban tourism, sea and island tourism, healthcare tourism and educational tourism.

Hanoi targets 22 million holidaymakers in 2023, including three million foreigners, Giang said, adding that the Municipal Department of Tourism needs to have a methodical strategy and the cooperation of travel agencies.
