Recent developments in the tourism sector are boding well for the northern province of Hai Duong’s plan to greet 4 million tourists this year.

In the first half of 2019, about 2.18 million holiday-makers visited the province, up 17.4 percent on year. This meant that there is a great possibility that Hai Duong will achieve an important landmark of welcome 4 million tourists this year. With this trend, the ambitious goal of 4.65 million visitors set for 2020 is likely to be achieved by the end of this year.

Currently, Hai Duong is working with other localities in the northern key economic region to build inter-provincial tourism routes, while investing in improving its popular destinations and offering more services at traditional craft villages.

In the coming time, the local tourism sector prioritises the organization of communications campaigns and tourism promotion programmes in Vietnam and abroad. It will also seek approval from the provincial People’s Committee for a project on developing smart tourism in Hai Duong for 2019 – 2025./.
