In early November, international searches on accommodation facilities in Vietnam increased by 48 percent against the same period last year and the figure climbed to 67 percent in mid-December.

Ho Chi Minh City, Nha Trang and Hanoi were the most searched tourist destinations while tourists from Russian and American markets have shown the biggest interest in returning to visit the country, according to Google’s Destination Insights.

Searches for international flights to Vietnam in mid-December increased by 229 percent against the same period the year prior as the government approved the resumption of regular international flights from Jan. 1.

Vietnam’s aviation industry officially reopened regular flights between Hanoi, HCMC and Bangkok, Phnom Penh, San Francisco, Seoul, Singapore, Taipei and Tokyo from Jan. 1.

Vietnam reopened its doors to foreign tourists last November after nearly two years and has received 5,000 under a vaccine passport program, according to official data.

Five localities, Khanh Hoa, Kien Giang, Quang Nam, and Quang Ninh provinces and Da Nang City have been allowed to receive foreigners since November. HCMC and Binh Dinh Province were added to the list this month.
