The Hue Monuments Conservation Center welcomed 82,626 domestic and foreign visitors in Gold Tourism Month (September 2-30), raking in VND6.264 billion, a year-on-year increase of 8.32%.

Notably, visitors could enjoy discounts on entrance tickets to relics and transit services via electric buses. Discounts of 50% were applied to Nha Nhac or royal court music performances and 10-20% for other services such as souvenirs and drinks.

Tourists could also use one entrance ticket, that they could buy from the Royal Palace, Hieu Lang (Minh Mang) Tomb, and Ung Lang (Khai Dinh) Tomb to enter other monuments in the city.

Groups of 20 or more who arrive at sites together were offered a free guide and students were eligible for free entrance ticket at any site.

Thua Thien-Hue province is also implementing tourism promotional activities such as inviting Famtrip delegations from Japan, the Republic of Korea (RoK), and Thailand to survey a number of tourism venues in central region and organising Rowshow events (brand activation) in Ho Chi Minh City to exploit new potential market in Southwestern region.

From now until the end of the year, the Centre will launch a “Golden Tourism Week” from December 24-30 with discounts to be offered to those visiting the Hue relic site.
