Agoda: Vietnam’s Beaches Beckon South Korean Tourists

The allure of Vietnam's beaches to international vacationers is undeniable, for they cater to the burgeoning trend of travel to vibrant coastal towns and cities boasting pristine white-sand beaches.


Tourists from the Republic of Korea (RoK) are falling for Vietnam’s beaches with stark soft sand and crystal azure water, online travel platform Agoda said on April 2, VNA reported.

Da Nang, Hoi An, Nha Trang and Phu Quoc, boasting stunning beaches, high-end resorts and a kaleidoscope of tourism activities, are the most favorite destinations of Korean visitors.

According to Agoda’s country director for Vietnam Vu Ngoc Lam, international tourists have found Vietnamese beaches attractive since they meet the global tourism trend.

From the ancient city of Hoi An to tropical Phu Quoc island or dynamic Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam has a lot to offer its visitors, he stressed.

“Nha Trang – Khanh Hoa has beautiful beaches, vibrant nightlife, and many entertainment services and marine sports that attract tourists, helping us relax. The markets here are also bustling, with many delicious dishes,” said Young Mi, a RoK’s tourist.

Not only the feelings of tourists, Haps Travel magazine also stated the reason why people should not miss Nha Trang, because of the delicious food; beautiful beach; unique historical and cultural relics; exciting fun activities and water sports. “Walking along Tran Phu beach, watching the deep blue sea and sky brings a feeling of relaxation…This is a destination worth experiencing for international tourists, especially for Koreans”, the magazine wrote.

Statistics from the General Statistics Office showed the RoK remained the largest source of foreign visitors to Vietnam in the first three months of this year with more than 1.2 million arrivals, up 10% from the same time in 2019 – the time before the Covid-19 pandemic.

As the two countries upgraded their ties to a Comprehensive Strategic Partnership in 2022, the Vietnam National Authority of Tourism and the Korean Tourism Organisation signed a Memorandum of Understanding on bolstering bilateral tourism for the 2023-2024 period.

Vietnam is a coastal country with a coastline stretching 3,260 km, boasting precious resources.
