Nha Trang welcomes almost 1.2 million foreign visitors in 7 months
VOV.VN - More than 1.13 million foreign visitors arrived in the south-central city of Nha Trang, Khanh Hoa Province in the first seven months of this year, according to the provincial Department of Tourism.
China and Russia have the highest number of visitors to NhaTrang (more than 671,000 visitors from China, up 244% and 263,000 others from Russia, up 220% against the same period last year).
According to the Khanh Hoa Relics Preservation Centre, two destinations in Nha Trang City Centre, Ponagar Tower Complex and Hon Chong welcome thousands of visitors every day.
The Department of Tourism reported that tourist arrivals from traditional markets like France, the UK, Germany, Australia, the US and Canada dropped by 8-30% compared to the same period last year.
The number of foreign arrivals, particularly Chinese, to Nha Trang in August slightly reduced compared to June and July.
To cope with the decrease, Tran Son Hai, vice chairman of Khanh Hoa People’s Committee, has directed the Department of Tourism and Tourism Association to take proper measures to recover these markets and attract more visitors from new markets.
The two agencies are completing necessary procedures to open direct flights from Cam Ranh Airport to cities in the Republic of Korea and Japan.
