The number of foreign visitors increased by 4.6 times to nearly 70,000 in April from the previous month when Vietnam opened its borders.

There were arrivals from traditional markets such as Europe, America and South Korea and also new markets such as Mongolia, Kazakhstan and India.

On April 29, Da Nang welcomed 220 South Korean visitors, the first to arrive after the pandemic. Earlier Hoi An and Ho Chi Minh City received nearly 130 American visitors.

On Saturday, the National Administration of Tourism released a promotional video with images of the country’s people and tourism attractions ahead of the SEA Games to be held next month, which, its deputy director, Ha Van Sieu, said is an opportunity to promote Vietnam's tourism to the region and world.

In April, domestic tourism also performed strongly with the number of visitors rising by 16.7 percent from a year earlier to 10.5 million.
