Ha Noi welcomes a large number of visitors during National Day holiday

National Day is an important day of Vietnam and there are many interesting activities that to be held on that day. So Hanoi attracts a large number of tourists visiting on National Day holiday.

Ha Noi’s tourism sector welcomed over 207,000 visitors during the National Day holiday from September 2-6, a year-on-year rise of 22%, according to the Ha Noi Department of Tourism.

The city received more than 22,000 foreign holiday-makers, a rise of 11% against 2015, and 185,000 domestic vacationers, up 23%. Total tourism revenues were estimated at over VND526 billion.

In order to further develop its tourism industry, Hanoi has recently begun focussing on promoting its more popular sites and improving the quality of tourism products and events in the city.

To mark the holiday this year, Ha Noi has launched pedestrian streets around Hoan Kiem Lake.

Some streets, such as Dinh Tien Hoang and Hang Khay, will be completely closed to motor vehicles, while on some others, such as Trang Tien and Hang Bai, only the sections adjacent to Hoan Kiem Lake will be shut down.

Police officers were deployed to direct traffic from afar while the transport department will also open new spaces to park vehicles near the pedestrian area.

The new regulation is effective from 7pm on Fridays to midnight Sundays.

In another move to boost tourism, the capital city will provide free Wi-Fi access to the Hoan Kiem Lake area, where tourists will be able to enjoy the service for up to 30 minutes after entering their phone numbers. Wi-Fi broadcasting stations will be installed at 21 sites around the lake.
