Due to impacts of the Covid-19 pandemic, international visitor arrivals in Vietnam in February declined by 38.3 per cent month-on-month and 99.1 per cent year-on-year to just 11,000. In the first two months of the year, the foreign arrivals nosedived 99.1 per cent from the same period last year.

Most of the visitors were foreign experts and skilled workers who work for projects in Vietnam as the country maintains travel restrictions to contain the spread of the Covid-19.

In recent years, Vietnam has been continuously named in the list of world leading destinations voted by prestigious international organisations and awards such as the Reader Choice Awards (CNTraveller) or TripAdvisor.

In October 2020, Vietnam was ranked ninth in a list of the world's 20 favourite countries in 2020 voted by readers of CNTraveler.

In early March 2020, five cities of the country were honoured by 2020 Tripadvisor Travellers' Choice Awards: Best of the Best around the World.

Specially, Da Nang and HCM City was ranked seventh and 12th among the trending destinations, respectively; Ha Noi and Hoi An City were honoured with the 15th and 17th positions in the list of 25 popular destinations, respectively, while Phu Quoc was listed among the emerging destinations.

Previously, Vietnam was only a destination known for its natural landscapes such as Ha Long Bay or Trang An, Son Doong.

However, the country is now known as the world’s leading golf destination, the world’s leading luxury resort or the Golden Bridge with international recognition. - Agencies
