Vietnam is in increasing interest among Russian VIP tourists. Today, the number of premium requests for the winter in Vietnam is significantly greater than for some other popular Asian markets. One of the reasons is that the leading hotel chains in Vietnam are adapting their services to the wishes of the Russians. This year, according to experts from the tourism market, Vietnam will remain one of the most popular destinations among Russians. Its share in the total outgoing flow is growing, including the VIP tourism segment. So, according to Marina Yesina, the deputy head of the Elite department of the tour operator Coral Travel, this year's VIP requests for Vietnam are much higher than similar bookings for other Asia destinations. In comparison with some other popular Asian destinations, the difference is very significant in favor of Vietnam.
In addition to Moscow and St. Petersburg, the high demand for Vietnam is provided by the regions of Russia, primarily Siberia and the Far East. In the coming season the representatives of the Vietnamese Vinpearl chain plan to hold some promoting events in such cities as Yekaterinburg, Krasnoyarsk, Tyumen, Yakutsk and Khabarovsk.
In total, tour operators have offered a wide charter transportation program from more than 20 regions, within the framework of which business class flights are also available.
