Phan Thiet’s preparation for cultural and tourism events 2012

A view of Phan Thiet city.

 BTO - During the first 6 months of 2012, service and tourism activities of Phan Thiet city have gained great success with higher tourist volume and revenue than the same period last year. In order to keep further development of tourism sector, Phan Thiet city authorities have actively directed relevant branches prepare good conditions to welcome visitors during the last six months of 2012.

Accordingly, Phan Thiet authorities need to immediately focus all efforts on the planned international and traditional cultural, tourism events namely the International Balloon Festival and Nghinh Ong Festival. These festivals coincide with the 67th anniversary of the National Day (September 2nd). It is known that the International Balloon Festival is expected to take place at Ham Tien-Mui Ne tourist zone from August 29th to September 3rd, 2012, attracting many teams from many countries and territories. Following Nghinh Ong Festival, a biennial festival which represents the Chinese Vietnamese people’s  customs and belief, will be held in Phan Thiet city from September 4 - 6, 2012. Mr. Nguyen Van Luan-vice chairman of Phan Thiet city People’s Committee said that “Two events take place in succession in short period of time, so tourist volume is expected to rise. Therefore, preparing good conditions to welcome visitors is necessary for the city right now. Along with functional units and Binh Thuan Tourism Association, Phan Thiet city will also focus on ensuring public order and security for visitors. However, the city’s drainage construction under the project financed by ADB is underway, so there will be bad influence on urban landscape at the moment. For this result, we need relevant department’s support and local residents’ interest to ensure the most favourable conditions for visitors who come to Phan Thiet for travel and recreation on that time”.
