A “Golden Tourism Week” will take place in the Hue ancient imperial relic site, a UNESCO-recognised World Heritage, in the central Thua Thien-Hue province from June 15-21.

According to the Hue Relics Preservation Centre, visitors to the site during the week will enjoy preferential treatment, including free tickets to the site for students and free tickets to the Royal Palace-Minh Mang Tomb-Khai Dinh Tomb route.

The centre will also hold a number of special tourism and cultural events and launch new services to attract tourists, including art performances and exhibitions.

The centre’s Director, Phan Thanh Hai, said that as of mid-June, the relic site had welcomed nearly 970,000 tourists this year, 504,000 of which were foreigners. Tourism revenue has reached 90.4 billion VND (4.15 million USD), the highest recorded in the first five and a half months of a year.

The centre will organise two other promotion weeks this year, from September 2-8 and from December 24-30.-VNA
