Vietnam travel more popular with Russian tourists

2011-02-11 (GMT + 7)

A large number of Russian tourists are choosing Vietnam travel for their holidays instead of Egypt, according to the Voice of Russia.

Although a tour to Vietnam costs about 15-20% more than a trip to Egypt and takes longer, the country still remains a popular destination for Russian tourists due to the recent unstable political situation in Egypt, said a Russian tourist operator.

The Russian Foreign Ministry and the Ministry of Sports and Tourism have warned its citizens to abandon trips to Egypt. On top of this, a number of travel companies have been asked not to market tours of the country.

Apart from Vietnam, Thailand, Indonesia and other several other countries in Southeast Asia are also popular with Russian holidaymakers.
