VTV.vn - According to the General Statistics Office of Vietnam, the number of international visitors to Vietnam only reached 8,800, the lowest in the past few years.

In HCMC alone, the number of foreign visitors was reduced by 69.3% compared to the same period last year, reaching only 1.3 million visitors. Those international visitors who did come mainly came from China, South Korea, Taiwan (China), the U.S and Japan.

These visitors mostly consist of experts and technical employees who are working on projects in the country.

The tourism industry has launched a campaign encouraging Vietnamese people to travel to Vietnamese destinations, aiming to stimulate domestic tourism, in addition to preparing the necessary conditions for the reopening of the door to international visitors. According to experts, due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, travel safety is considered a top priority. Taking the issue seriously, domestic tourists are tending to choose nearby destinations, short-term tours in small groups, and individual tourism.

Grasping the psychology of customers, most travel businesses running tours have carefully chosen destinations as well as transportation, accommodation and catering services to ensure optimal safety for travelers.
