Hanoi is taking various measures to attract more tourists in the final months of 2020.

As a result, total revenues generated by the capital city’s tourism sector slumped by 69.2% to an estimated VND24.92 trillion (over US$1 billion).

With the second wave of coronavirus now under control, tourism in Hanoi is gradually recovering and is expected to see strong growth in the final months of 2020 if the virus situation continues to be kept in check.

In November the Hanoi Department of Tourism is expected to carry out a wide range of measures to boost demand such as taking part in the Vietnam International Tourism Mart and a tourism development forum with key destinations in Vietnam as well as implementing plans to promote the country’s historical sites and trade villages through 360-degree photos.
