After the pandemic, the number of Indians selecting Vietnam as a vacation destination has continued to rise. Through a series of bilateral conferences and programs, the nation has aggressively encouraged Indians to go there.
Instead of renowned Southeast Asian tourist destinations such as Thailand or Singapore, Indian visitors are rapidly shifting their focus to Vietnam, a country with stunning landscapes, wonderful cuisine, and high-end resort services.
Hanoi, Ho Chi Minh City, Phu Quoc, Quy Nhon, Danang, Hoi An, Nha Trang, Phan Thiet, Dalat, and Halong are the most popular places for Indians going for leisure with their families.
Indians are increasingly planning trips to Vietnam inside the one-year US visa waiting period. According to the Vietnam National Administration of Tourism (VNAT), the number of Indian tourists to Vietnam increased by an average of 51% each month in the first ten months of this year, with 20,681 Indian visitors in October and 82,061 in the first ten months of 2022.
VietJet is now running 17 direct flights to India and has just announced a pair of direct flights that would link Da Nang to Mumbai and New Delhi, crossing the 3,194-kilometer distance between the two nations in around 4.5 hours. Vietnam aims to attract travelers from India’s West and Central-Southern metropolitan areas to its economic and tourist centers by offering visas upon arrival.
Indians may travel directly from Mumbai, New Delhi, Ahmedabad, Bangalore, and Hyderabad to Vietnam and the Vietnamese cities of Hanoi, Ho Chi Minh City, Da Nang, and Phu Quoc. Since July, the monthly number of Indian travelers visiting Vietnam has exceeded 2019’s numbers.
