HANOI, Aug 13 (Vietnam News/ANN): Vietnam's domestic tourism market continues to record good growth, according to the National Administration of Tourism.

The country’s domestic tourism market continues to record impressive growth, according to the National Administration of Tourism.

Searches for Vietnam’s tourist attractions on the Internet in July this year increased nearly eight times and three times as compared to the same period last year and the beginning of March this year, respectively, before the country re-opened to tourism.

Ho Chi Minh City was the most searched destination for domestic tourists, followed by Phu Quoc Island, Hanoi, Da lat, Da Nang, Vung Tau, Quy Nhon, Hue and Phan Thiet cities.

According to the Ho Chi Minh City Tourism Association chairperson, Nguyen Thi Khanh, member business operations have recovered to about 60-70% of the period before the pandemic.

The number of travel businesses restarting their business was about 70 per cent, she said.

The city’s tourism was more prosperous because the people’s travel demand increased, especially in summer.

She said that domestic and foreign tourists had well received many new tourism products from Ho Chi Minh City. - Vietnam News/ANN
