Aussies look to Vietnam for holidays

2011-10-01 (GMT + 7)

Vietnam ranks third in the list of destinations for Australians, many of whom are travelling abroad following a strengthening of the Australian dollar, Australian newspaper The Daily Examiner has reported.

Vietnam is considered a short-haul favourite for tropical beach breaks, the newspaper said.

Over the past 12 months the number of Australian Internet searches on Expedia for Vietnam has increased by 73 percent, it added.

The Australian dollar has risen 16 percent against the dong in the last year.
