The Mekong Delta city of Can Tho posted a tourism revenue of 945 billion VND (approximately 44.4 million USD) in the first 10 months of 2014, up 160 billion USD compared to the same period last year.

During the period, the city welcomed 1.2 million visitors or 89 percent of its yearly target, according to the municipal People’s Committee.

Can Tho aims to attract an additional 200,000 holidaymakers by the end of the year, in an attempt to increase the sector’s total revenue by 16 percent against 2013.

Improvements in tourism quality, products, services, and cuisine combined with diversified ecological tourism have drawn an increasing number of tourists, said Director of the city’s Department of Culture, Sports, and Tourism Tran Viet Phuong.

The encouraging results were also attributed to efforts to develop eco-tourism in Khuong and Cai Khe islets, Phong Dien and Thot Not tourism complexes, he added.

The city has created conditions for economic sectors to get involved in building tourism infrastructure while taking advantage of its position as the hub of the Mekong River Delta to develop tourism.

Can Tho has cooperated with other localities to form a “tourism triangle” in a bid to promote regional tourism.

Additionally, the city has focused on training tour managers and guides, restore historical and cultural relic sites as well as traditional festivals, and intensifying tourism promotion activities in the country and abroad.
