Foreign tourists to Hanoi sees sharp increase

QĐND – Sunday, August 01, 2010, 21:5 (GMT+7)

PANO – According to latest statistics from the Hanoi Department of Culture, Sports and Tourism, the city has received 551,600 international tourists from the beginning of this year up to now, a year-on-year increase of 12%.

Germany was the leading nation in the number of visitors to Hanoi with 104,900, a four-fold increase in comparison with the same period last year, followed by China with nearly 76,600, up 32%, France with 59,100, up 32% and Japan with 50,900, up 20%.

One of the reasons that led to the increase of foreign visitors to Hanoi was the launching of various tourism activities to celebrate the 1,000th anniversary of Thang Long-Hanoi such as the movements titled “Hanoians welcome friends” and “the Green Tourism Year”.
