Hanoi (VNA) – Around 3 million tourists were recorded during the National Day holidays from September 1-4, the Vietnam National Administration of Tourism (VNAT) announced on September 5.

The average accommodation occupation rate reached 60-65%.

As this was the last long holiday before the summer ends and the new academic year comes, localities had exerted efforts to seize opportunities by building and renewing tourism products and inaugurating new sites to attract more tourists.
