via Vietnam Net, 03 December 2023: The Hanoi People’s Committee has proposed increasing ticket fees at key tourist sites, including the Thang Long Imperial Citadel, Huong Pagoda, and the Temple of Literature. This move aims to generate more funds for conservation and renovation efforts. The proposed hikes vary, with the most significant increase at the Thang Long Imperial Citadel.
“The current ticket fees collected from visitors to these sites are not enough to cover conservation and renovation work, the committee said. “So it’s necessary to raise the fees so that the management have more funds to improve service quality.
The committee proposed the highest fee hikes at the Thang Long Imperial Citadel, from VND30,000 to VND100,000 per ticket; followed by the Huong Pagoda from VND78,000 to VND120,000 per ticket; and the Temple of Literature from VND30,000 to VND70,000. Ngoc Son Temple and Hoa Lo Prison are both proposed to have a ticket fee hike by VND20,000 from VND30,000 to VND50,000.
