The plan aims to attract numerous international and domestic tourists to visit and experience Hanoi, creating growth and comprehensive development of the capital’s tourism in terms of scale and quality of services, quantity and structure of tourists, ensuring sustainability.

It also focuses on improving the state management capacity of tourism in the city, maintaining Hanoi’s role as a major tourism center of the country and continuing to build the capital as a “Safe - Friendly - Quality – Attractive” destination, meeting the development requirements in the new situation, affirming it among the top tourist destinations in the world.

Accordingly, the plan identifies four target groups and four main indicators. In particular, Hanoi will be developed as a gateway to welcome and distribute tourists in the north and the whole country.

Along with that, the city will focus on synchronously developing groups of tasks and solutions to accelerate the recovery and development process of the capital’s tourism. It will strive to achieve a number of tourism development targets in the 2024-2025 period to gain equivalent or higher recovery level before the COVID-19 epidemic.

The capital will further promote the development resources and form  professional and attractive tourism product groups with advantages and potential for breakthrough development in the coming period, including: Cultural tourism, MICE tourism, agricultural and rural tourism, entertainment - sports tourism, eco-tourism, resort, health care and golf tourism.

The city also implements solutions to attract international tourists to Hanoi, focusing on a number of key markets, such as Northeast Asia (China, Japan, the and the Republic of Korea), ASEAN, the EU, and the US and gradually exploit new and potential markets, such as India, Middle East countries, and Eastern European countries.

Hanoi strives to welcome and serve more than 30 million tourists by 2025, including over 7 million international visitors. Total revenue from tourists reached more than 130 trillion VND. The total contribution rate of the tourism industry to the city’s gross regional product (GRDP) strives to reach more than 8%. The average room occupancy rate in hotels and accommodations is over 60%./.
