Vietnam is now of the fastest-growing tourist destinations in the world

Published on : Thursday, March 14, 2019

Although not the most popular destination in Asia or the world just yet, but Vietnam has been one of the world’s fastest-growing tourist destinations over the last couple of years. No wonder that Vietnam’s heritage offers truly spectacular sights. It features 3,000 kms of coastline, scenic rock formations, rich culture and history, and much more!

 

The numbers of international travellers to Vietnam have increased three-fold since 2010, from some five million to 15.5 million in 2018. The latest figures show that the majority of international visitors to Vietnam prefer travelling by plane, after ground and sea transportation.

 

Asian travelers, mostly Chinese and Korean, dominate the charts.

 

Vietnam is now preferred much by Chinese travellers.

 

Currently, there are 30 Chinese cities with services to Vietnam, compared to 26 two years ago. The number of routes has grown from 53 to 64 over a period of 12 months since January 2017. Also, Chinese passport holders no longer have to apply for a visa before leaving for the country. They can simply get a visa-on-arrival in Vietnam.

 

The two go-to destinations for Chinese travellers are Ho Chi Minh City, and the capital city of Hanoi in the north. Vietnam’s beach resorts are gaining popularity too.
