Vietnam attracts British tourists

Vietnam is ranked seventh among the ten leading long-haul destinations selected by British tourists, according to the website of the famous travel agency Hayes & Jarvis.

The ranking is based on the bookings of British holidaymakers from October 2012 to January 2013.

Vietnam has become more attractive to the UK’s tourists in the long-haul holiday market thanks to the opening of Vietnam – UK direct airline in December 2011, the appearance of seaside resorts and reasonable prices of services, according to the Vietnam National Administration of Tourism.

There are only two Asian countries in the top ten list, including Vietnam and Thailand. This year, Vietnam outperforms its famous neighbour destination to rank the seventh.

The combination of exploration, rich heritage and beautiful beaches is the advantage of Vietnam’s tourism.

Before, Vietnam was also ranked second of the best value long-haul destinations according to the Long Haul Report 2012 of the British company Post Office Travel Money.
