Golf tourism – Vietnam’s new advantage

Golf tourism has emerged as a new advantage for Vietnam to attract international holidaymakers, especially after the COVID-19 is brought under control.


At a seminar in the northern province of Quang Ninh recently, the participants looked into issues regarding golf tourism development, and shared the view that Vietnam should target golf tourists from East-North Asia in the immediate future.

Vietnam has been named the World’s and Asia’s Best Golf Destination 2021 at the eighth annual World Golf Awards.

It is the second year that Vietnam has been honoured with the world title and the fifth consecutive year with the Asian title since 2017.

Quang Ninh province has been seen as a leading golf tourism destination in Vietnam.

Quang Ninh is also one of the five localities, along with Kien Giang, Khanh Hoa, Quang Nam and Da Nang, selected for the pilot programme to welcome foreign tourists after a long pandemic hiatus./.
