HCM CITY — Việt Nam received 11.6 million foreign visitors in the first nine months of the year, up 22.9 per cent year-on-year.
In September the Việt Nam National Administration of Tourism (VNAT) conducted a slew of promotional activities in foreign markets to attract international holiday makers.
Also this month the agency held tourism promotion activities for the first time in Canada on the occasion of the 45th anniversary of bilateral diplomatic ties.
Việt Nam’s destinations, tourism products, and services were introduced to Canadians.
The VNAT plans to team up with the US Travel Association and the Hà Nội Promotion Agency to organise a tourism promotion programme in Washington DC and New York.
The US has remained one of Việt Nam’s top five tourism markets with the number of visitors from that country exceeding 614,000 in 2017, an 11 per cent increase from the previous year.
In the first eight months of this year Việt Nam had welcomed 486,000 American nationals. — VNS
