In addition, the Hue imperial relic site in the central province of Thua Thien-Hue served more than 3 million visitors in 2017, earning over VND320 billion (USD14 million), 22.05 percent higher than the plan.
Director of the Hue Monuments Conservation Centre Phan Thanh Hai said, in recent years, the Hue imperial relic site has welcomed more and more tourists, reflecting its attractiveness, particularly the signature tour of  “Hue-One destination- Five heritages”, including the complex of Hue ancient capital, Hue royal court music, moc ban (wood blocks) and Chau ban (royal official documents) of the Nguyen Dynasty, and poetry in Chinese-language scripts on Hue royal architecture which was recognised as world documentary heritage by UNESCO.
In 2017, the center launched the programme “Dai Noi by night”, serving 28,000 tourists, and generating over 3 billion VND (USD132,000). It also earned over 16 billion VND (USD704,000) from services offered at the site in the year.
Over 176 billion VND (USD7.74 million) was spent on upgrading and maintaining the site’s landscapes, such as Tang Tho palace, the Temple of Literature, Truong Co tomb, and the Hon Chen shrine. Nearly USD150 billion (USD6.6 million) has been disbursed, accounting for 84.97 percent of its plan.
The center welcomed 21 international delegations to the cultural and historical exchanges held in the year, with the highlight of the visit of the Japanese Emperor and Empress to the Hue ancient citadel.
International cooperation was also strengthened in upgrades and maintenance work. In 2018, the provincial tourism sector hopes to welcome between 4 to 4.2 million visitors, of which foreigners make up of 40 to 45 percent, up 10 percent and 12 percent from 2017, respectively, generating 4 to 4.2 trillion VND (176 million to 184.8 million USD).
