The Mekong Delta city of Can Tho will begin direct air services to Lam Dong and Khanh Hoa provinces next year to promote tourism, according to its Investment, Trade and Tourism Promotion Centre.

The city hopes that the new routes will bring more foreign as well as domestic visitors from these places.

Also next year the city plans to develop tourism services and products and organise events to attract foreign tourists.

This year the city hopes to welcome 1.3 million visitors, an increase of four percent over last year.-VNA
