More the 2.4 million people visited the Mekong Delta city of Can Tho in the first three months of 2018, up 13.6 percent year on year and realising 30.2 percent of the yearly target.

Tourism brought in more than 39 million USD during the period, an annual increase of nearly 21 percent. The revenue met 25.7 percent of target set for this year.

The municipal Department of Culture, Sports and Tourism attributed the results to myriad activities held in celebration of the lunar New Year holiday, particularly the opening of nine more tourism sites.

The city plans to boost quality of local tourist destinations, while offering new destinations and tourism services.

The plan covers the improvement of river tours and electric car services, and the construction of entertainment and resort area, among other facilities.-VNA
