Viet Nam welcomes almost 300,000 foreign arrivals in September

In September alone, Viet Nam welcomed nearly 300,000 foreigners, bringing the total number of foreign visitors to the country to 2.6 million in the first nine months of this year, a year-on-year increase of 23.3 percent.
Experts of the tourist sector attributed the recent surge in the number foreign arrivals to Viet Nam to the effective policy of visa exemption for citizens from a number of countries.
The number of tourists from countries of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) to Viet Nam increased dramatically in September - the number of Singaporean, Thai and Malaysian visitors increased by 50 percent.
The number of travellers coming from the Republic of Korea was up by 57 percent, while those from the Netherlands and Belgium increased by 30 percent. They were followed by those from France, up by 26 percent; from Norway, up 24 percent, from the US, up 23 percent; and Japan, up 21 percent.
