The four millionth visitor, Amelia (C), receives a gift from the Hoi An authority

The UNESCO-recognized natural heritage site of Hoi An town, in the central province of Quang Nam, welcomed and gave a gift to the fourth millionth visitor of 2010.


The town government gave this special gift to Amelia, a native from Australia, on December 7.


Hoi An has sold tickets for package tours of the town since 1995.  Seventy percent of the money raised from the ticket price is used on restoring and preserving historical and ancient relics.


UNESCO appreciates this money as it aids then in many areas of restoration and preservation.


Nearly VND200 billion (US$100,000) has been collected from selling tickets and VND144 billion has been given to the preservation fund.
