Vietnam attracts large numbers of Korean tourists

The number of Korean tourists to Vietnam has increased considerably over the past 10 years, from 53, 000 in 2000 to 0.5 million in 2010, up 230%, according to Hoang Thi Diep, Deputy Director General of the Vietnam National Administration of Tourism (VNAT).

She told a seminar in Ho Chi Minh City that the Republic of Korea is now Vietnam’s second largest market for its tourism industry and the country is improving the quality of tourist services.

Cho Young Jai, General Secretary of the ASEAN-Korean Centre, said the centre plans to develop Korean-language networking for four countries, including Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos and Myanmar to help Korean tourists easily access information about famous scenery, food and hotel services in those countries.
