The tourism revenue exceeded VND60,000 billion, representing a 5.3-fold increase year-on-year, according to the Hanoi Department of Tourism.
In 2023, the city targets to welcome 22 million tourists, rising by 17.6% over 2022. The number of international arrivals is expected to hit three million.
Local authorities expect to earn VND77,000 in revenue from tourism next year, up 28.2%.
