The central province of Thua Thien-Hue has announced plans for a culture and tourism week entitled “Hue Heritage—a Week for Tourists”, scheduled for December 24 to 30.
The week is part of celebrations for the 20th anniversary of UNESCO officially recognising Hue Imperial City as World Cultural Heritage.
Its organisers hope the event will introduce Hue’s many attractions to both domestic and foreign tourists.
The week’s concluding highlight will be a Royal Night held on December 30.
During the week, the 2,000,000th visitor to Hue will be honoured and presented with gifts.
The Hue Relics Preservation Centre will also present gifts to the three travel agents responsible for bringing the largest number of visitors to Hue in 2012.
Many travel agents and tourism service providers are offering discounts to tourists considering experiencing the former capital city.
