Among them, international tourist arrivals by air accounted for 88.6%.

In September 2022 alone, international visitors to Vietnam reached nearly 432,000 arrivals, down 11.2% from the previous month.

Revenue from accommodation and food services in the 9 months was estimated at 430.900 trillion VND, up 54.7% year on year due to the high demand for entertainment and tourism during the summer.

Meanwhile, travel revenue is estimated at 18.2 trillion VND, 3.9 times higher than the same period last year, due to strong recovery of tourism activities, especially domestic tourism.

The whole tourism industry is still actively promoting the image of Vietnam's tourism to attract international visitors.

Recently, the Vietnam National Administration of Tourism, in collaboration with TikTok and the Vietnam Tourism Association, introduced the “Ngan Nga Vietnam” campaign on the TikTok platform to call on the public to find the beauty of traditional music, honoring culture and contributing to the promotion of national tourism./.
