Vietnam welcomes more Japanese tourists

(+849) 0418.6939
Vietravel Marketing and Tourist Company said it will receive nearly 700 visitors from Japan on July 4-6.

This is the largest number of Japanese arrivals since the March 11 earthquake and tsunami, marking the return of a tourism market with potential for development.

The delegation will make a Vietnam-Cambodia tour to explore Angkor Wat and Angkor Thom temples of Cambodia and popular destinations of Vietnam ’s Ho Chi Minh City and the Mekong delta.

The recent natural disasters reduced the number of Japanese tourists by 40 percent on average from the same period last year, which was earlier expected to rise between 15 percent and 20 percent over 2010.

However, despite such damages, Japan remains Vietnam ’s promising tourism market, according to Bui Nguyen Tam Dang, Head of Vietravel Overseas Market Group.

Travel experts held that the market will completely recover from the third quarter of this year, he noted. (Source: VNA)
