About 8.61 million tourists visited Hanoi in the first half of this year, marking a three-time jump over the same period last year, according to the municipal Department of Tourism.

Some 211,300 of the visitors are foreigners.

The Vietnamese capital city’s total tourism revenue in the January-June period amounted to approximately VND25.2 trillion (US$1.08 billion), more than three times the figure in the first six months of 2021.

Local hotels rated 1-5 stars recorded an average occupancy rate of over 30 percent during the period, up 6.11 percent year on year, the Vietnam News Agency reported.

Home to 24 recognized tourist destinations, Hanoi is offering a series of enticing products to attract tourists for the reopening of the local tourism industry. 

These include night tours at Hoa Lo Prison and Thang Long ancient citadel, a northern mountainous wet market program at Vietnam National Village for Ethnic Culture and Tourism in Son Tay township, and a Hanoi City Tour by double-decker buses.  

In addition, Hanoi also launched many tourism exhibitions, trade fairs, and festivals.

The city aims to greet over 30 million visitors, including seven million foreigners, by 2025, according to the municipal Party Committee’s draft conclusion on tourism development for 2016-20 and following years. 

The visitors are expected to spend more than VND130 trillion ($5.59 billion) while in the capital.
