Travel to Hue - Thai tops foreign tourists

2010-12-06 (GMT + 7)

The number of Thai visitors travel to Vietnam and visit the ancient capital city of Hue has increased from 4.7 percent in 2005 to 24 percent in 2010, ranking first in the list of foreign tourists travel to Hue.

As many as 6,000 Thai tourists travel to Hue in a single day this year.
This is the result of the close cooperation between Vietnam, Laos and Thailand in improving transport infrastructure, expanding trade exchanges across the borders and reforming migration procedures to facilitate tourism services.
Especially, the East-West Economic Corridor stretching through Myanmar, Thailand and Laos to Vietnam has opened up a lot of economic cooperation opportunities for member countries and the East sea bordered region, particularly in the tourism sector.
As of early December this year, the central province of Thua Thien-Hue had received 1.36 million visitors, a year-on-year increase of 11.7 percent, of which the number of foreign visitors travel to Hue city increased by 7.9 percent. The province’s tourism industry earned VND774 billion, up 20.4 percent as compared to the same period last year.
Hue is one of the most popular destinations of Vietnam travel. Straddling the Perfume River, this mysterious, somber city is a historian's dream come true, with numerous 19th century ruins, royal tombs and an excellent museum.
