Russians flock to coastal Vietnam

Improved services, stable prices, beautiful landscapes and variety of attractions are the drivers that are drawing tourists back to this south central province in Vietnam, according to the Provincial Culture, Sport and Tourism Department

The department quoted a recent survey that claimed 60% of foreign tourists returned to Khanh Hoa for a second visit, and 20.1% returned for a third time or more.

“It showed the reasons why travelers returned. They included improved services, stable prices, beautiful landscapes and a wide range of attractions,” the department said.

Russia, South Korea, Australia, and the United States are the largest tourism suppliers in the international market.

Khanh Hoa Department of Culture, Sport and Tourism vice director, Phan Thanh Truc added: “Russian tourists usually stay for an average of seven to 10 days, some even stay for a month to enjoy or build skills in water sports.”

Vietnam Airlines announced recently a new flight connecting Moscow with Cam Ranh in Khanh Hoa province that is due to start 4 May. The weekly flight will expand to two a week from October this year, using Boeing 777 aircraft.

Khanh Hoa Tourism Promotion Information Centre director, Nguyen Van Thanh, said: “More than half of the Russian tourists who travel to Vietnam will visit Khanh Hoa. The Cam Ranh Airport receives around three to five charter flights from Russia daily,” adding that traffic should increase this year.

So far this year, Khanh Hoa received 171,000 foreign visitors, an increase of 27% compared to the same period last year. Around 35,000 were Russians.

It will also be a good sign for many potential city tours, such as Saigon Full-day Tour. For more information, please contact us and we will return to you as soon as possible.
