The Vietnamese space at the 2019 Moscow International Travel & Tourism Exhibition (MITT), featuring promotion publications, images and maps on Vietnam’s island and sea tourism in Russian and English, has attracted many Russian visitors.

Aiming to bring the programme of National Tourism Year 2019 closer to Russian visitors in particular and the international in general, the Vietnam National Administration of Tourism (VNAT), Vietnam Airlines and several local tour and hotel operators have been taking part in the 2019 MITT in Moscow from March 12 to 14.

Khanh Hoa is hosting National Tourism Year 2019 themed “Nha Trang – Colour of Sea”, which includes various tourism activities, including a marine festival week and a Hong Kong-Nha Trang yacht race.

Speaking at the event, Dinh Ngoc Duc, head of the VNAT Tourism Marketing Department, said Russia is among the top 10 markets of the Vietnamese tourism sector. The two countries have sound political ties and are connected by direct flights, while Russian demand for Vietnamese tourism products is rising.

According to the VNAT, the number of Russian tourist arrivals in Vietnam grows by 30 percent annually on average, with the total number of arrivals expected to reach 1 million by 2020.

In 2018, 600,000 Russian people visited Vietnam, raking 6th among all countries in terms of visitor number.
