The Vietnam travel industry and tourist-based companies have been expressing concern with the recent decline in the country’s tourist numbers. Since 2014, each month has seen tourism on a steady decline, especially compared to the country’s numbers in recent years. With the beginning of 2015 seeing a similar trend, MinMax Travel has been asking not only “why” but also what we can do to help.
Industry experts largely attribute the decline in numbers to the recent events in the East Sea with China (greatly reducing Chinese tourist numbers) as well as issues with Russia’s current economy- bringing down the annual numbers of Russian tourists. Both Chinese and Russian tourists have a large effect on Vietnam’s tourist industry with cruise ships coming in from China and direct flights operating directly from Russia to Vietnam.
In addition to these rather large international issues, foreigners also believe the problems tourists face in Vietnam (including the visa on arrival issue) play a large role with visitors coming to the country. While MinMax Travel can do little to appease the Chinese and Russian issues, we are doing our part to improve tourism in other aspects.
