Khanh Hoa welcomes nearly 13 million tourists
The central province of Khanh Hoa has welcomed nearly 13 million domestic and foreign tourists so far this year, mainly flocking to the coastal city of Nha Trang, according to the provincial Department of Culture, Sports and Tourism.
The figure includes over 546,000 overseas arrivals, up 25 percent against the same period last year.
The record figure is attributed to Nha Trang city, which has upgraded its infrastructure, diversified tourism products, improved services, maintained prices and ensured tourism security.
The province plans to open additional international air routes from Russia and Hong Kong to the local Cam Ranh airport, build an environmental management system, set up support centres for tourists, and intensify security work at key tourist sites.
It is expected to receive around 24,000 overseas tourists travelling by sea before the end of the year.
