Tourism development in north - central region

(+849) 0418.6939

The potential and orientations for tourism in the north-central region were discussed at a seminar in Hue City on April 15, aiming to promote tourism in the region and in the country as a whole.

Twenty-six reports presented at the seminar highlighted the tourism potential of this region, which has significant tangible and intangible cultural heritage as well as, revolutionary historical sites, natural landscape, divers eco-systems, islands and international borders to facilitate the exchange of goods.

However, the Vietnam National Administration of Tourism (VNAT) says the region's tourism products and services are not attractive enough to encourage visitors to extend their stays. The number of tourists using support services is low compared to other regions, accounting for only 25-30 percent for the whole country.

In the future, the tourism sector in north-central provinces should focus on increasing the quality of its services, developing trademarks for high-quality products, and improving material and technical facilities, in addition to promoting regional tourism in foreign countries through enhancing the connections between localities.

The National Tourism Year 2012 hosted by the central province of Thua Thien Hue aims to develop closer links between localities to create favourable conditions for the north-central region to boost its tourism development on par with its potential and strengths.
