Hue offers heritage site discounts to lure visitors

Visitors to Hue will be able to enjoy a month of promotions to mark National Day on September 2.

During the month, groups of 10 or more visitors will get a 20 per cent discount on tickets to heritage sites in the former royal capital city. Visitors will also be allowed to use tickets for the Imperial Palace, Khai Dinh or Minh Mang mausoleums to enter other sites.

Cost for shows of Hue royal court music (nha nhac) performed in the Duyet Thi Duong royal theatre inside the palace will also be cut by 50 per cent.

The discounts are among incentives Hue has applied to try and reach the target of three million visitors. In the last seven months, the city welcomed 1.8 million visits. — VNS
