Ha Tinh martyr memorial gets over 1,000 visitors daily

Update: July, 25/2014 - 10:05

Every day more than 1,000 tourists visit the Dong Loc T-Junction Historical Area in the central province of Ha Tinh as it prepares to mark the 67th anniversary of War Invalids and Martyrs Day on Sunday.

The number is up 15 per cent from last year.

The site marks the spot where 10 young women volunteers died in 1968 in an enemy bomb attack when they were repairing roads destroyed by bombs for the revolutionary army. There are shrines in their honour now.

The relic management is improving services available to visitors.

The province is organising many art performances to commemorate the day. — VNS
