Hanoi : Nearly 3.7 million foreign tourists travelled to Vietnam in the first four months of 2023, according to Vietnam National Administration of tourism (VNAT). The number of domestic tourists during the period was estimated at 38 million. Total revenue from tourists was estimated at VND 196.6 trillion (USD 8.3 billion). Of the total visitors, up to 88.7 per cent travelled by air, 10.1 per cent by road, and 1.2 per cent by sea.

In April alone, Vietnam welcomed 984,000 international travellers, the highest figure from the beginning of this year and an increase of 9.9 per cent from the previous month. The country served 10.5 million domestic tourists in the month.

The Republic of Korea remains Vietnam's biggest tourism market in the first four months of this year with one million visitors, followed by the United States with 263,000 and China with 252,000 travellers.

This year, Vietnam is striving to serve 110 million tourists, including 8 million foreigners (the target was set before China, the primary tourist market to Vietnam, announced its reopening in February), and earn around VND 650 trillion (USD 27.6 billion) from tourism services.

The revenue from packaged tours in the first quarter is estimated to reach VND 6.8 trillion, 2.2 times the figure of last year due to cultural, festival, and tourism activities taking place in many localities in the early months of the year.
