In particular, the night tour of Quang Tri Citadel, dropping flower lanterns on the Thach Han River has attracted plenty of tourists. Mr. Nguyen Duc Tan, Director of the Center for Investment, Trade and Tourism Promotion of Quang Tri province said: "With night tourism products, the province hopes to bring visitors new experiences and increase the length of stay of tourists in Quang Tri.
