Mekong Delta Attracts Nearly 13 Million VisitorsPosted: Friday, August 17, 2012
The Mekong Delta Tourism Association said the Mekong Delta region welcomed 1.8 million visitors in July, bringing the total number of tourist arrivals to 12.8 million in the year to date, up 6 percent year on year. Revenues reached VND2,600 billion in the seven-month period, up 25 percent over the same period last year.
The impressive outcome was attributed to enhanced tourism quality as mentioned in the tourism development cooperation programme in the 2010 - 2015 period.
Accordingly, regional provinces boosted cooperation, upgraded tourism infrastructure, encouraged all economic sectors to invest in tourism. Each province or city focuses on unrepeated tourism products to lure investors.
