Vietnam wants a larger inflow of Indian tourists, who are yet to show as much interest in this far eastern country compared to its neighbours like Thailand and Malaysia. Vietnam offers Visa-On-Arrival for Indian tourists and has some of the most exotic locales in the world including the Halong Bay.

According to Nguyen Le Thanh, deputy chief of mission at Vietnam Embassy, 20 million Indians travel overseas every year, while only 90,000 of them to visit Vietnam.

“India has a very important place in our foreign policy and we have a comprehensive strategic partnership. The bonding will strengthen further with more people to people contact and this can be boosted through tourism,” she said.

Nguyen Quy Phuong, the Director-General Travel Industry Management Department, said, “Over 102,173 people travelled from India to Vietnam in August 2019. This can be doubled in the next few years with an increase in tourism programmes.”

Phuong mentioned the first direct air service between Vietnam’s capital Hanoi and Kolkata is likely to commence by the first quarter of the next financial year.

Nguyen Le Thanh while talking about Vietnam said that “the country has a great heritage with a 4000-year-old history. With a very long coastline, the S-shaped country has 125 beaches including the popular Nha Trang, Da Nang and Phu Quoc island. The country is peaceful and safe with friendly people and boasts of an exquisite cuisine.”
