Chinese tourists storm Vietnam in November

Recommended Posts

Visitors to Vietnam in November rose a stunning 39% over the year-ago month, reaching a new record high of more than 1.8 million. This follows October's 34% year-over-year increase.

 

Asian tourists accounted for a staggering 81% of total number of visitors in November, with total Asian visitors soaring 47% from the previous November. The Chinese represented 77% of the spike in arrivals. (Bye, bye Thailand.)

Almost 13 million of them came from Asia, with the number of Chinese and South Koreans exceeding 5.2 million and 3.8 million, respectively.

Impressive numbers for sure.

 

What is even more impressive is that the article giving details of the November figures is dated mid-day on 30th November. Now, that is a trick that even TAT has not yet mastered.:biggrin:
