HCMC – Vietnam has attracted 1.23 million foreign tourists this month, up by 11% against the previous month. This is the highest monthly number of foreign tourist arrivals this year.

According to data from the Vietnam National Authority of Tourism, a total of 11.2 million international tourists have visited Vietnam so far this year, surpassing the full-year target by a remarkable 40%.

South Korea has remained Vietnam’s largest tourist-generating market, with 3.2 million Koreans coming in the January-November period, accounting for 28.5% of the total. China follows with 1.5 million tourists, and Taiwan with 758,000 visitors.

Vietnam has also seen significant tourist arrivals from other countries, including Thailand, Malaysia, Cambodia, Australia, and India, all of which are among the top 10 markets in the first 10 months.

Notably, European tourist arrivals have surged by a staggering 58.5% this month, the highest growth rate among continents. This rise is attributed to Vietnam’s unilateral visa waiver, allowing visitors to stay visa-free for up to 45 days.

Chinese tourist numbers have also maintained steady growth, with an increase of 9.6%.
