Hai Phong particularly received more than 5 million tourist arrivals, up 11%. The achievement is quite encouraging, especially in the context of difficult socio-economic situation of the city and the country. The success of the National Tourism Year has created impetus for promoting Hai Phong tourism in future.
By motivation of the National Tourism Year’s success, Hai Phong is having opportunities to abolish the seasonal business of tourism and develop into a big and high quality tourism centre where national and international events are organized; thereby to attract high spending and long staying visitors. Taking full advantage of positive effects brought by this event is also expectation of the majority of Hai Phong people.
