thua-thien-hue-in-vietnamThe central province of Thua Thien-Hue in Vietnam is hopeful to attract 3.3 to 3.5 million visitors in 2017, Vietnam news agency (VNA) reported. The region also expects to earn 3.2 to 3.3 trillion VND (US$139.1 million to US$143.4 million) from tourism in 2017, up eight per cent and three per cent year-on-year.

 

In 2016, the Han script-language poetry on Hue royal architecture was recognised as the world documentary heritage by the Memory of the World Committee for Asia and the Pacific (MOWCAP), becoming the fifth internationally acclaimed heritage in Hue in two decades.

 

Other UNESCO-recognised world heritages include the Complex of Hue Monuments, Hue royal court music, woodblocks and imperial records of the Nguyen Dynasty (1802-1945).

 

To tap such advantages, the Hue Monuments Conservation Centre has actively popularised “Hue – one destination, five heritages” tours and restored a number of relics at a cost of 129 billion VND (US$5.6 million).

 

Duyet Thi Duong royal theatre, built by Emperor Minh Mang in 1826 for performances of royal music, dance and classical drama, puts on stage four shows per day.

 

Recognised as the world’s intangible cultural heritage since 2003, more than 40 royal court music performances have been performed at the theatre.

 

Nearly 130 relics have so far undergone restoration, including Ky Dai, Ngo Mon, Thai Hoa Palace, Hien Lam Cac, An Dinh Palace, complex of King Gia Long tomb, King Thieu Tri tomb, Thien Mu pagoda among others, which cost nearly 1.2 trillion VND (US$52.1 million), more than 90 billion VND (US$3.9 million) of which was funded by foreign organisations.
