Vietnam to invest major tourism bucks in Central Vietnam, Hue

Central Vietnam, 2010

According to Vietnam News, Central Vietnam, specifically the area around Hue, is going to get about a million buckaroos to boost tourism for 2012.  The goal apparently is to boost the amount of tourism by about 7 to 8 million visitors.

Tourism is a big economic booster in SE Asia.  The only hope is that you get the "good" tourists versus some of the "bad" tourists.  On my way back from Hanoi, I noticed some very seedy "farangs" with really disheveled looks.  Some actually sort of smelled a little too.  Hue is a beautiful city.  There are also a lot of really nice spots there.
