Hoian travel gives gift to the fourth millionth visitor

2010-12-09 (GMT + 7)

The UNESCO-recognized natural heritage site of Hoian town, in the central province of Quang Nam, welcomed and gave a gift to the fourth millionth visitor of 2010.

The town government gave this special gift to Amelia, a native from Australia, on December 7.
Hoian travel has sold tickets for package tours of the town since 1995.  Seventy percent of the money raised from the ticket price is used on restoring and preserving historical and ancient relics.
UNESCO appreciates this money as it aids then in many areas of restoration and preservation.
Nearly VND200 billion (US$100,000) has been collected from selling tickets and VND144 billion has been given to the preservation fund.
Hoian is considered as one of the best destinations of Vietnam travel which attracts many tourists every year. Not far away from Danang (30km) Hoian town is small and peaceful, the kind of place where you may get stuck for a few days, whether it is intentionasl or not. Originally known as Faifo, this antique town is bordered on its southern side by the Thu Bon River, along which there's a number of small cafes.
