Night tickets will be the same as day tickets, at 120,000 VND (5.3 USD) per Vietnamese and 150,000 VND (6.6 USD) per foreigner.

The programme “Dai Noi by night”, expected to be a highlight in the heritage tour in the central region, will feature ancient royal rituals, traditional dances and art performances. Tourists can also experience Hue traditional crafts and royal activities.

The province has also devised numerous drastic and comprehensive measures to promote tourism, including luring investment in high-end tourism sites and focusing on enhancing tourism service quality to draw international visitors.

The province aims to receive over five million visitors by 2020, and over seven million by 2030, making it one of the leading tourism destinations of the nation and in the region.-VNA
