In August 2019, Long An welcomes 120,000 visitors

According to the Department of Culture, Sports and Tourism of Long An Province, in August 2019, Long An welcomed about 120,000 arrivals, an increase of 10 percent over the same period. In particular, international visitors were estimated at 1,600 arrivals. Turnover was estimated at VND 55 billion, up 10 percent compared to July 2019.

Recently, Happyland has attracted a lot of tourists

Director of the Department of Culture-Sports and Tourism - Nguyen Anh Dung said: “Long An tourism has had many important changes over the past time; tourist destinations have been invested or called socialization. The number of tourists of the province is increasing; especially, foreign tourists are more than before. This is the result of the implementation of the tourism development program into a key economic sector of the province.”

In particular, there are specific tasks and solutions for Long An tourism to become an important economic sector, creating favorable conditions to promote other fields in accordance with the orientation of the province's socio-economic development strategy.

Long An is located in a favorable position - the gateway connecting Ho Chi Minh City and the Mekong Delta provinces. Currently, the investment in the province's transportation system and national transportation networks such as Ho Chi Minh City - Trung Luong expressway and National Highway 1 are also conditions for the development of Long An tourism.

Especially, Long An has ecological landscapes of Dong Thap Muoi, Vam Co river landscape, historical-cultural relics, craft villages, and so on. These are potential factors for tourism development.

From Tan An City, along Vam Co Tay River, tourists can visit attractive destinations such as Tan Lap Floating Village, Lang Sen Wetland. From Ho Chi Minh City, along National Highway 1, they can visit Memorial Area of Lawyer Nguyen Huu Tho, Happyland, Vam Nhut Tao relic and Nguyen Trung Truc Temple, Ong Ban Quy Temple, etc.

In order to attract more tourists, the province is actively developing new tourism products, focusing on developing eco-tourism and forming inter-regional tours with neighboring provinces.

The province is cooperating with HTVC Cable Television to produce and broadcast the program "Check-In Vietnam" with the theme "Long An - Today Destination".

Hopefully, with the attention of the provincial leaders and the participation of businesses in tourism product development, in the coming time, Long An will attract more international as well as domestic tourists to contribute significantly to the socio-economic development of the province./.
