indexVietnam is gaining ground in international tourism these days unlike the earlier years. It has become one of the fastest-growing destinations in the world now.

As per the latest report from the UNWTO, Vietnam ranked seventh in the list of emerging markets with a 24.6-percent increase in tourist arrivals in 2016. In 2016, Vietnam received a record of 10.5 million tourists, and it expects to receive one million more this year. Its target is receiving 17-20 million vacationers by 2020, in addition to handling 82 million domestic tourists.

By 2020, the Vietnamese tourism authorities also plan to generate four million jobs with a turnover of 35 billion dollars, accounting for 10 percent of the country’s Gross Domestic Product (GDP). By 2030, Vietnam’s goal is to make tourism a key pillar of economy with a great impact on other fields, emerging as a top Southeastern Asian country with a green economy. Between 2010 and 2016, international tourist arrivals in Vietnam increased twofold (from five million to ten million) and domestic tourists increased from 28 million to 62 million.

Besides Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City, formerly known as Saigon, major achievements have been made in the coastal cities of Nha Trang (southeast) and Da Nang (center), as well as in Phu Quoc, the largest island in the country (south).

Vietnam is in the 24th position among 141 countries in terms of tourist resources, but it is in the 75th place regarding competitive capacity.
