The locality’s tourism sector earned total revenue of 3.4 trillion VND (over 146.4 million USD), up 15.2 percent from the same period last year.
Notably, since the beginning of the year, the city has greeted many delegations of international holiday-makers, including Joe Lewis, the owner of Tottenham Hotspur Football Club.
Recently, Can Tho was listed among the world’s most beautiful canal cities, according to the Departures, an American lifestyle magazine. This is an opportunity for Can Tho to promote its tourism sites and potential for tourism development to international visitors.
The results were attributed to efforts made by the municipal authorities in promoting tourism in many localities nationwide to organize tours connecting Can Tho with Mekong Delta provinces.
The city also expands cooperation with Malaysia and Japan in the field.
Attention has been also paid to investing in infrastructure development, diversifying tourism products in popular tourism sites, especially waterway tourism; and organizing regional and international conferences, towards promoting tourism and attracting more tourists to the locality./.
