1,700 visitors travel to Vietnam by sea

2010-01-21 (GMT + 7)

The Voyages of Discovery Cruise Ship carrying 900 passengers on board on January 21 began a tour of Vietnam from Ho Chi Minh City to Nha Trang, Da Nang and Ha Long.

Passengers mainly from the UK will stay in Vietnam until January 27.
On January 24, another Cruise Ship, the Spirit of Adventure, with 800 passengers on board will conduct a tour of Vietnam going the opposite way from Ha Long to Da Nang, Nha Trang and Ho Chi Minh City.
These are the first two ships to have docked in Vietnamese ports in 2010. The Vietnam tourism sector has set a target to welcome 4.5-4.6 million foreign arrivals in 2010, up 18-21% against 2009. So this news will hope to be a good news for Vietnamtourism in new year.
