On the morning of March 16, Mr. Hoang Viet Trung, Director of the Center for Conservation of Hue Monuments, said that there was an exchange related to the complaint about the inadequacy in ticket sales to the Hue Citadel received by a Facebooker Tran Oi. , introduced as a tour guide, posted on social networks.
According to this person, each visitor has to spend 200,000 VND to buy tickets to visit Hue Citadel (Hue Imperial Palace), but including tickets to visit Hue Museum of Royal Antiquities (near the Citadel) is priceless. physical.
On the other hand, when the customer asks, the staff will give the card, if not, that’s okay. “If you just go to the museum but don’t want to go to the Citadel (don’t want to or have been to the Citadel) you have to buy tickets up to 200,000 VND because tickets are not sold separately. So are tourists being forced?” – this person poses the problem.

In addition, this person also reflected that the ticket price was expensive, ranked in the top most expensive places in Vietnam’s monuments, but could not give visitors a map of the Citadel. Guests enter this gate, lost their way through the other gate, no one knows the way back.
Sometimes I see people entering Ngo Mon but going to Hoa Binh’s door, in the middle of the corridors, there is no guard standing in case there is a visitor asking, can’t find the way to the parking garage. The relic site was restored, so it was fenced, so Thai Hoa Palace is the most important work, but visitors are not allowed to enter.
“But I don’t see the management agency moving to reduce the price for tourists. Restoration can’t be one or two meals, it’s very time consuming. The ticket price is not worth what is received in return” – This person analyzed.
