A total of 4.8 million foreign travelers to Vietnam tour during the first ten months of the year, according to the Vietnam National Administration of Tourism.

Although the number of foreign visitors declined by 25 percent in September compared to the same period last year, Vietnam is optimistic of welcoming 5.3-5.5 million foreign visitors in 2011.

This year, the country hosted many political and cultural events such as ‘ASEAN’, ‘1,000th anniversary of Thanh Long’ in Hanoi, which made it interesting for foreign visitors to visit the country.

The number of foreign tourists to Ho Chi Minh City is estimated to reach 2.9 million this year, an increase of 10 percent compared to the same period last year.
