The total number included 535,000 foreign holidaymakers and 3.2 million domestic visitors, the department said.

According to the department, tourism activities in the city have showed positive signs as the number of tourists visiting the capital city has been increasing in the first months of the year.

Ha Noi is working to make a breakthrough in tourism development this year by creating new and distinctive products to attract more domestic and international visitors.

The city expected to attract about 22 million tourists this year, with 3 million foreign arrivals and 19 million domestic ones. It also targets to earn some US$ 3.3 billion from the non-smoke industry.

Ha Noi will step up new types of tourism, such as adventure tourism, experience tourism, helicopter tours, hot air balloon service, and virtual reality travel.

It will promote MICE and golf tourism, while hosting more national and international cultural, sports, political, social, and festive events.

The city will enhance tourism partnerships with other localities nationwide and hold more promotion activities in foreign markets like Northeast Asia, Europe, the US, and India.

In the short term, the Ha Noi Tourism Festival 2023 will be held from March 24 to 26 around Hoan Kiem Lake, targeting to promote the cultural values of heritage sites and foster cooperation between Ha Noi and other localities in Viet Nam and abroad./.
