Tourism in Vietnam had an amazing boom at the peak of summer with millions of tourists flocking and a tourism revenue reaching hundreds of trillions of VND.
In the first six months of 2022, Vietnam welcomed about 60.8 million domestic tourists per latest report of the Vietnam National Administration of Tourism. In addition, the number of tourists was estimated at 12.2 million in June alone when the summer vacation began. This is an excellent count since COVID started.
Vibrant festivals have been held again, passengers are crowded at airports, hotels are “burned out”, and bustling crowds of people at entertainment parks and attractions are blowing life to tourism.
Tourism is a general financial sector closely linked with other economic sectors. Before the pandemic, it approached a key economic industry when contributing 9.2 per cent to the country’s GDP.
The country’s tourism is recovering quickly when in the first half of the year the number of domestic tourists achieved a level close to the expectation for the whole year.
