Asia Vietnam to promote tourism in Chinese cities
The Vietnam National Administration of Tourism will conduct Vietnamese tourism promotion in the three Chinese cities of Chengdu, Chongqing and Shenzhen on May 15-24.
According to the Institute for Tourism Development Research under the administration, Chinese visitors often account for 28 to 30 percent of the total international arrivals to Vietnam, and they often travel to central Khanh Hoa province, northern Quang Ninh province, central Da Nang city, southern Kien Giang province, Hanoi capital and Ho Chi Minh City.
The number of Chinese tourists to Vietnam is forecast to increase in the coming time, mainly due to low cost, short travel time and high frequency of flights between Vietnam and China, Vietnam News Agency said, noting that over 10 Vietnamese and Chinese airlines currently operate 30 air routes between 20 Chinese cities and Vietnamese localities with a total of more than 500 flights a week. ■
