h Moscow International TravelThe tourism body of Vietnam and its travel agencies have been taking part in the 25th Moscow International Travel & Tourism Exhibition (MIIT), which started on March 13 in the Russian capital.

 

The MIIT is among the biggest tourism expos in the world comprising hundreds of seminars and press conferences.

 

At the three-day event, Vietnam had stalls operated by the Vietnam National Administration of Tourism (VNAT), Vietnam Airlines and locally-well-known travel companies like Viettravel and Saigon Tourists.

 

At the event, Vietnam Airlines is displaying its Dreamliner Boeing 787 – 9, which will be used for the carrier’s Vietnam – Moscow route from March 27.

 

Speaking at the event, Vietnamese Ambassador to Russia Ngo Duc Manh said that collaboration between the VNAT and other Vietnamese representatives at the event occupies an important role in making Vietnamese tourism acquainted with the foreigners.

 

The VNAT sees Russia as a key tourism market. Vietnam has its reputation as a safe and friendly destination with sandy beaches, sunny weather and high-end resorts, along with rich culture and gastronomy that can attract Russian visitors.

 

VNAT said that the number of Russian tourists to Vietnam grows on an average of 30 percent annually, with total arrivals expected to reach 1 million by 2020.

 

Over 2.86 million foreigners were estimated to visit Vietnam in January and February, going up 29.7 percent from the same period in 2017.
