Thua Thien – Hue (VNA) – Since the start of 2016, the Hue Monuments Conservation Centre (HMCC) has received almost two million visitors, including 1.43 million foreigners, an increase of 36.5 percent year-on-year. 

Till the end of 2016, along with holding some exhibitions on the relics, the HMCC is carrying out the “Promote service for tourism” plan, using community and businesses resources to promote the relics’ values. The revenue earned by the plan since the start of the year reached 11 billion VND (493,130 USD). 

The centre is also considering opening the Imperial Citadel at night, completing the brochure of An Dinh Palace and designing souvenirs to promote royal antiquities. 

The third phase of Gold Tourism Week at Hue heritage sites will be held from December 24 to 30. During this time, visitors to Hue monuments will receive discounts on tickets to cultural destinations. 

The centre has invested nearly 5 billion VND (224,100 USD) in small restoration works at relics and infrastructure to serve visitors. 

The centre has also preserved intangible heritage. The Hue Royal Traditional Theatre has more than 100 trained and experienced performers, experts and artists, with dozens of traditional ritual songs and royal dances to be delivered to visitors.-VNA
