Hanoi travel has welcomed 5.7 million tourists during the first five months of 2011, according to the Hanoi Department of Culture, Sports and Tourism.

Of this, 552,098 were made up of foreign tourists (32 per cent from China, 28 per cent from Australia and 14 per cent from Japan), a year-on-year increase of 20 per cent.

Thanks to significantly increased visitor numbers, hotel capacity reached 60.62 per cent, a year-on-year increase of 3.56 per cent.

Hanoi aims to welcome 13.25 million visitors in total, including 1.75 million foreign tourists, during the year.

The city has also set a target of welcoming 16 million visitors, including 2 million foreign tourists, by 2015.

A tourism promotion campaign, set to run from 2011-15, coupled with an international tourism fair and a Hanoi eating and drinking festival, will assist the city in successfully reaching its targets.
