In the north, Hanoi greeted 227,640 visitors, including 42,640 foreigners, up 14 percent from the same time in 2015.

In the central region, 82,000 and 22,000 visitors came to Quang Binh and Nghe An, representing annual decreases of 44 percent and 20 percent compared to the same period last year.

Earlier last month, mass fish deaths were reported along beaches in four coastal central provinces - Ha Tinh, Quang Binh, Quang Tri and Thua Thien-Hue.
