Arrivals surged to 2.5mln in 7 months
Vietnam received 2.46 million foreign visitors over the past seven months, a year-on-year increase of 16.2%, the General Statistics Office (GSO) has said in its July report.

In July alone, 343,000 international tourists arrived in the country, representing an annual rise of 2.4%. Visitors from Italy increased 65.4 per cent; Russia, 64.9%; Malaysia, 61.8%; and New Zealand, 40.2%.

According to the GSO, the number of holidaymakers from Japan, the Republic of Korea, the US, Australia and Canada were stable in the last 7 months while there were fewer visitors from China, Laos and Cambodia.

Room occupancy rates at major tourism areas reached over 80 per cent, even 100 per cent in Hanoi, Ho Chi Minh City and Nha Trang. The GSO further said that the achievements were attributed to the government's recent major policies to help the tourism sector.

Many large festivals, international exhibitions and fairs were held in the country and abroad to attract visitors and promote the country's image. VNA
