HCMC – The City Hall, home to the People’s Committee and People’s Council of HCMC, welcomed 2,500 visitors during the final two days of 2023, reported the local media.

The city’s Department of Tourism reported the surge in visitors, attributing it to extended opening hours that included lunchtime access and 60-minute afternoon tours.

Visitors had the opportunity to explore different parts of the French-built City Hall building, such as the main hall, the ground-floor international reception room, the second floor, meeting room No. 5, and the balcony.

This City Hall tour program, which began on April 30 the previous year, is part of the city’s efforts to showcase its national heritage sites to both local and international guests while promoting HCMC as a welcoming and open metropolis.

The City Hall tours are set to continue throughout this year.

To celebrate the arrival of 2024, HCMC organized a range of festivities, including fireworks displays at two locations, a New Year countdown festival, artistic performances, and athletic contests. In addition, new tourist offerings like double-decker and waterway bus services were launched to cater to the demand of tourists seeking a vibrant Saigon night experience.
