Vietnam suffers dramatic decline in tourism

According to Vietnam National Administration of Tourism, in this June, 529,445 international visitors had been attracted to Vietnam, which indicated a slight fall of 1.9% against the same month last year.

13,430 visits from Thailand were recorded this month. This number showed a fall of 34.4% compared to the same period last year.

Even though there was a drop of 16.7% in the number of visits, China was still the leading supplier with 113,906 visits. The other leading suppliers were Malaysia, South Korea, the United States and Japan.

Cambodia slipped out of top 10 suppliers with 11,739 visits, representing a significant fall of 63.2%.
 The majority of Vietnam’s leading suppliers come from the Asia/Pacific region. The fourth and eighth positions belong to US and Russia, a trend that has remained unchanged for more than 5 years.

Most of the visits in this June arrived at the two key aviation gateways, which are Ho Chi Minh City and Hanoi.

3,804,636 international visitors have been welcomed in Vietnam from January to June this year. In comparison with the same period last year, there was a dramatic decrease of 11.3%.

For more than a year, there has been a decline in the number of visitors in every month. The latest fall is the smallest decrease in percentage terms. This means that Vietnam’s trade can be optimistic about their future if more promotions are launched. The Government also believes that with easier visa issues and visa – free travel, the trend will sure to be reversed.
