Vietnam’s tourism sector has made new records in 2016, said Nguyen Van Tuan, Head of the Vietnam National Administration of Tourism at a press conference on December 22 in Hanoi.


Vietnam’s tourism hits growth records in 2016



According to Tuan, one of the records is the number of 10 million international tourist arrivals, up 25 percent against last year (or two million), making the highest thus far.

The ten-millionth foreign visitor to Vietnam will land Phu Quoc international airport in the southern coastal province of Kien Giang on December 25.
The sector also served 62 million domestic tourists and earned total revenues of 400 trillion VND (18 billion USD).

Such figures showed that the sector in 2016 has reached the goals set for 2020 under the Strategy for Vietnamese tourism development in 2020 with a vision to 2030.
According to the tourism administration, most of foreign tourist groups to Vietnam increased in 2016. 

To date, Northeast Asian visitors have topped the list, especially those from China, Japan and the Republic of Korea (RoK). They together made up 30 percent of international tourists in 2016. 

The number of Western European travellers to Vietnam also experienced a soar, including those from Italy, the UK, France, Germany and Spain, which are benefiting from Vietnam’s visa exemption policy.

By the end of October this year, as many as 635,000 tourists from those markets arrived in Vietnam, an increase of 16 percent compared to the same period last year. Of the figure, the Italian market upped 30 percent, Spain and the UK ones jumped by 27 percent and 22 percent, respectively.
Russia is the Vietnamese tourism sector’s biggest European market with a growth of 27 percent, while small – scale ones such as the Netherlands and Sweden also enjoyed a significant rise. 

In 2017, the country’s tourism aims to lure 11.5 million international tourists and serve 66 million domestic visitors, earning 460 trillion VND (20.24 billion USD) in revenue.

Lurid green moss carpets sea defenses

In a curious case of cohabitation between nature and a manmade structure designed to protect a hamlet in Phu Yen from the sea, a blanket of moss has covered the concrete embankment creating a somewhat alien scene. After being chosen as the set for hit movie "Yellow Flowers on Green Grass", Phu Yen is changing. Now this beautiful site in the poor province of Phu Yen is up on the radar. Sitting on the North-South route, Phu Yen can be easily reached by Highway 1A. From the center of Tuy Hoa,… chat_bubble_outline Read More...
