On the whole, the southern hub attracted nearly 2.9 million foreign tourist arrivals in the first ten months of 2011, a year-on-year increase of 10 percent.

Tourism turnover in October was estimated at VND 4.8 trillion, up 20 percent compared to the same period last year. This brought the figure for the first ten months of 2011 to VND 38.8 trillion, up 21 percent.

Currently, the HCM city’s department of culture, sport and tourism is finishing plans for a gastronomy festival featuring delicious dishes from around the world. The festival will be held from December 26, 2011 to January 1, 2012 and is expected to draw the participation of 80 domestic and foreign organisations.

In additional, the HCMC tourism sector is coordinating with Vietnam travel agents to prepare for activities and events which will be held during the New Year Festival and the Lunar New Year Festival 2012.
