Vietnam witnessed a remarkable surge in tourist arrivals from India, with a staggering 312% increase compared to 2019. Simultaneously, the country experienced a substantial 396% growth in visitors from Cambodia.

Out of the total number of travelers, air travelers constituted over 7.4 million, while more than 1.26 million preferred overland travel. Sea travel, however, maintained a relatively modest figure.

According to the Vietnam National Authority of Tourism, June witnessed a significant influx of international tourists, with over 1.2 million visitors, reflecting a year-on-year rise of 28.1%.

The positive growth trend in the first half of the year positioned Vietnam at a promising midpoint, achieving 50% of its whole-year target of attracting 17-18 million international tourist arrivals.

South Korea retained its position as Vietnam’s largest tourist source market during the January-June period, contributing 2.2 million travelers, which accounted for 25.8% of total international arrivals.

China followed closely behind, with 1.8 million tourists choosing Vietnam as their Southeast Asian destination of choice for the first half of the year.

The United States, Japan, Malaysia, Australia, India, Cambodia, and Thailand also emerged as significant sources of tourists, contributing to a diverse and robust international tourist landscape in Vietnam.

Industry insiders predict a peak season for inbound tourism in Vietnam, extending from October to April of the following year. This forecast bodes well for the country’s tourism industry, indicating a likely continuation of the upward trend in international tourist arrivals in the coming months.

Additionally, Vietnam is actively promoting its tourism offerings through various programs and initiatives, ensuring that its tourism services and products gain traction and appeal among international audiences.

In the first half of the year, Vietnam successfully catered to 66.5 million domestic vacationers, further bolstering its tourism industry.
