Since the beginning of the year, Vietnam has welcomed 3.3 million international visitors, representing a year-on-year increase of 35 percent.
The experts forecast that the number of foreign tourists travel to Vietnam would continue to increase from now to the end of the year due to various important celebrations in Vietnam including the 1000 th anniversary of Thang Long-Hanoi and the 2010 International Yacht Festival in Mui Ne, the southern province of Binh Thuan.
Besides, as part of the Vietnam travel stimulus programme which will be held in Ho Chi Minh City in November, the sale campaign for tourists with discounts from 10-50 percent is also considered attractive for tourists.
