The city’s tourism revenue totaled more than VND 66 trillion (US$2.8 billion) in the past ten months and it is expected to hit VND80 trillion (US$3.4 billion) by the end of the year. 

Statistics showed that about 35 million visitors come to the Northwestern provinces in 2019, including five million international visitors who brought VND53 trillion (US$2.3 billion) in tourism revenue. 

The region is a source of potential tourists that Ho Chi Minh City sets to exploit.
