As one of the leading tourism hub of the nation, the capital city of Hanoi is rolling out a host of activities in an effort to warm up the domestic tourism market, and stands ready for the return of foreign tourists.
Director of the municipal Department of Tourism Dang Huong Giang said the capital has prioritised COVID-19 prevention and control in anticipation of the return of international holidaymakers.
According to the official, Hanoi had to suspend its cooperation with CNN last year promoting the city’s image due to the pandemic, but the programme will continue this year.
“We would like to spread the message that Vietnam, particularly Hanoi, is a safe destination with a raft of complete, quality services,” she said.
The department has asked local hotels to upgrade their infrastructure and strengthen their human resources in preparation for the arrival of foreign vacationers.
Giang affirmed that all international festivals to be organised in Hanoi this year will be at the international level, so as to attract foreign visitors.
