The Hai Van Gate national relic site will be restored for preservation as proposed by the People’s Committee of central Thua Thien-Hue province.

Located 490m above sea level, Hai Van Gate sits atop its namesake mountain pass and connects Da Nang’s Lien Chieu district with Thua Thien-Hue’s Lang Co township, Phu Loc district.

The gate was recognised as a national relic site in April 2017.

It has grown to become a popular attraction among tourists as it offers stunning views of the surrounding water bodies and landscape. Last year, the relic site welcomed around 2 million tourists, 90 percent of whom are foreigners.

The project, which has total funding of about 1.82 billion USD, will be carried out from 2019 to 2020.-VNA
