In the letter, on behalf of the government and people of Thua Thien Hue province, Chairman Phan Ngoc Tho thanked tourists for choosing Thua Thien Hue Province as a destination in their travel itinerary. With the deepest and most sincere feelings of the local people in their efforts to build a safe, friendly and green - clean - bright destination, Thua Thien Hue province wishes to welcome visitors in the near future. Especially with this letter, the visitors will have free entry when visiting the monuments on their next trip.

Chairman of the Provincial People's Committee Phan Ngoc Tho wrote, "first of all, I would like to express our best regards and warmest greetings to you! Thank you for choosing Vietnam and our beautiful and charming Hue City for your trip.

Without the outbreak and dangerous developments of the Covid-19 epidemic, perhaps these days you have been having interesting experiences with the scenery, cuisine, heritage, culture, and people in Hue… However, to ensure your health and community safety, we sincerely regret to temporarily keep in quarantine for people who have close contact with Covid-19 patients to monitor and check their health status, as well as control epidemic spread.

So far, you have not been able to enjoy your trip as expected; the limited facilities and services at the quarantine areas may have caused some inconvenience to you. We expect to receive your understanding and sharing with our local government to prevent and reverse the epidemic. We highly appreciate and express our sincere thanks for your kind cooperation over these days.

We hope in the nearest future, Hue will be the first choice in your travel itinerary, so that we would have an opportunity to express our hospitality and unique tourism services of our ancient capital.

We will facilitate your free entrance to Hue Monument Complex if you have chance to come back and explore our Hue ancient and beautiful city in the future. Please keep this letter as a guarantee of your free admission to Hue Monuments on your next trip to Hue City."
