The northern province of Lao Cai, which is home to Sa Pa, a world-famous tourism site, looks forward to welcoming 100,000 tourists during the National Day holiday on September 2, according to the provincial Culture, Sports and Tourism Department.
Of the figure, about 60 per cent are expected to visit Sa Pa.
Located about 300km from Ha Noi, the province has many scenic sites with beautiful mountains, caves, forests, terraced fields, and markets of ethnic minority groups.
This year, the department has implemented programmes to promote tourism, including reduced price of tours and hotel rooms. — VNS
