The central coastal province of Khanh Hoa expects to welcome 97,000 visitors for the holidays marking National Reunification Day (April 30) and May Day.

According to the provincial Department of Culture, Sports and Tourism, most local hotels, resorts and restaurants plan to serve tourists with special packages that include cuisine, cultural performances and sports and leisure activities. Up to 80-90 percent of the total number of rooms at these places have been booked.

Vinpearl Land, Hon Tam Resort, the mud-bathing hot springs and tours to Nha Trang Bay are expected to be attractive destinations for tourists.

The department will also organise a number of traditional art performances such as “cai luong” (reformed theatre) and “tuong” (classical drama) to serve local people and visitors on the occasion.

The province now has 540 accommodation facilities with nearly 15,000 rooms, including 5,000 at three to five star hotels, which ensure demand is met for high-class accommodation.

It has also enhanced public order at tourism areas and introduced measures to control the prices of tourism services, especially room rentals.

In the first four months of this year, Khanh Hoa received more than one million tourists, including 293,000 from abroad, up around 35 percent from the same period last year.-VNA
