Vietnam: An Giang Province Sets Future Hopes On Tourism

AN GIANG, Jan 29 (Bernama) -- An Giang province is determined to become a major tourist destination of the Mekong Delta region, aiming at 1.6 trillion VND (US$100 million) in tourism revenue for 2008.

"An Giang has an advantages in tourism development over other provinces in the region, with a diversified terrain and 90 km border with Cambodia," the Vietnam news agency (VNA) reported Tuesday quoting the provincial Tourism Department director Bui Thi Hong Ha, as saying here.

The province welcomed 3.84 million tourists last year, including 40,000 foreigners mainly from the United States, France, Australia, Japan, China and Cambodia.

It generated 1.5 trillion VND (US$94 million) from tourism revenue, a modest increase of seven per cent.

The province hoped that future visitors would come to the province not just for pilgrimage trips but also to visit entertainment parks, adventure sport areas and tours linking to tourist attractions in border areas and abroad.

The province decided to set aside 1.93 trillion VND (US$121 million) for its hotels, restaurants and entertainment in the provincial tourist areas and around its five international and national border gates.

An Giang is located west of the Mekong Delta between the Tien Giang and Hau Giang Rivers and shares a 95-km border with Cambodia.
