May’s figure raised foreign arrivals in the city to over 1.85 million in the past five months, reflecting a rise of 5 percent year on year.

The outcomes were attributed to a number of measures being employed by the authority to attract more visitors in 2015.

The city’s tourism sector has organised a wide range of domestic and international promotional events, such as the Southern Cuisine Festival or the Southern Fruit Festival.

A series of books and maps have been published in English in order to help international tourists around town.

The city also launched a website and hotline (call 1087) to provide tourism information.

The municipal Department of Tourism plans to improve the quality and diversity of tourism services, including waterway tourism and art performances throughout the city.
