Under the programme, the province will offer transport services using environmentally-friendly vehicles like bicycles, electric cars, horse-drawn carriages and boats, to tourists to travel between attractions in the city.

At Vong Canh hill, which overlooks Perfume River, a pavilion will be built following the traditional architectural style of Hue and telescopes installed to give visitors a chance to fully enjoy the scenery.

There will be tours bringing tourists from Vong Canh to other sites such as Nam Giao altar, Ho Quyen (tiger fighting) arena – Voi Re temple, tombs of Hieu Dong, Thieu Tri and Cao Hoang, and Hon Chen temple.

By late December, Hue welcomed nearly 2 million visitors, earning a record VND100 billion from sight-seeing fees and services.

The complex of royal relics in Hue was recognised as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1993. The city was the capital of Vietnam under the Nguyen dynasty from 1802 until 1945.
