Thus, the number of international tourists visiting Vietnam is tending to decrease and has been the lowest since the beginning of the year.

Accordingly, the Vietnam National Administration of Tourism launched programs to promote inland tourism at potential markets. In particular, a tourism promotion program was held in Beijing (China) in June in order to advertise Vietnam’s cultural, sea and island, ecological and urban tourism products, and introduce Vietnam’s culture and tourism festivals in South Korea.
