Vietnam Welcomes Over 1.44 Million Tourists So Far This Year
In the first eight months of 2022, Vietnam welcomed over 1.44 million international travelers. Vietnam’s rise in tourism is a result of the country reopening to international travelers and resuming international routes post pandemic.
Arrivals in Vietnam
88 percent of international arrivals in Vietnam were by air while 12 percent were by ground travel.
Most of the visitors were Asian, with Korean travelers making up most of the visitors to Vietnam.
According to the General Statistics Office, in August, international travel increased by 38% from July.
The increase in travelers comes after a busy travel season due to a pandemic-induced travel hiatus.
The country fully reopened in March 2021 to tourism and the number of tourists continues to grow.
Vietnam is expected to welcome 5 million international travelers this year. However, that goal may not be achieved since there were only 1.44 million tourists from January to August this year.
