Record growth was noted in November in the tourism sector of Vietnam. The number of tourists has reached 1,8 million. At the same time, for 11 months of 2019, about 16,3 foreign tourists visited Vietnam. The increase was 15,4%.
At the same time, in November, the largest share of foreign tourists in Vietnam was from Asia, accounting more than 81%, and increased by 47,6% compared to the same period last year. The number of tourists from Europe, America, Oceania and Africa increased by 13,4%, 10,2%, 0,4% and 19,8 % respectively.
Vietnam is in increasing interest among Russian tourists. Today, the number of 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 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.
