The figures were revealed at a conference to review the city’s tourism performance in 2015 and propose orientations for the sector for 2016.

 

The sector also set a target of promoting the image of Ho Chi Minh City as a friendly, attractive and safe destination.

 

To achieve the targets, it will focus on improving the quality of tourism products and services and develop waterway tourism, said La Quoc Khanh, Deputy Director of the municipal Department of Tourism.

 

Efforts should be exerted to step up tourism promotion programmes as well as further ensure public order, with a view of enhancing the attractiveness of the city in the eyes of tourists.

 

Last year, the city received 4.6 million foreign visitors and 19.3 million domestic tourists, up 4.6 and 13 percent year-on-year, respectively.

 

Tourism earnings reached 94.6 trillion VND (over 4.1 billion USD), a year-on-year increase of 10 percent.
