In November alone, Hanoi is expected to welcome 1.61 million visitors, including 255,000 foreign tourists, generating a revenue of 4.39 trillion VND (177 million USD).

For the January-November period, the capital city welcomed an estimated 17.02 million tourists, with revenue at 48.35 trillion VND (1.95 billion USD).

In its tourism recovery and development plan for 2022, Hanoi set a target to welcome 9-10 million visitors, including 1.2-2 million foreign visitors, but the latest figures show that such a target has already been surpassed.

In November, the room occupancy rate of hotels in Hanoi is estimated at 47%, up 3.2 percentage points from October and 20.4 percentage points from a year earlier.

The rate for the January-November period is 36.1%, up 14.7% over the same period last year.

To continue attracting domestic and foreign tourists to the capital city, the municipal tourism department is planning to roll out a variety of new tourism products such as MICE tourism, adventure sports, Red River tours, and helicopter and hot-air balloon tours.
