Vietnam received 1.43 million foreign tourists in January, a year-on-year increase of 42 per cent and 12.1 per cent higher than that in December 2017, says the General Statistics Office.

The number of visitors increased this month because of two main reasons —overseas Vietnamese had come to Việt Nam for Tết (Lunar New Year), and for countries in Europe, the United States and Australia, January was winter holiday season, leading to a higher demand in travelling abroad.

In January, visitors from Asia were estimated at more than one million, a year-on-year surge of 53.9 per cent.

Visitors from most of the major markets for Việt  Nam increased, including tourists from mainland China, up by 69 per cent, and South Korea, up by 84 per cent. The number of visitors increased by 22.9 per cent from Taiwan, 35.5 per cent from Malaysia, 11.3 per cent from Thailand, 16 per cent from Singapore and 36.6 per cent from Cambodia.

According to the Việt Nam National Administration of Tourism (VNAT), the domestic tourism industry has actively promoted tourism activities since the beginning of this year to attract more tourists, aiming to welcome 15-17 million tourists in the entire year.

Việt Nam attended the 2018 ASEAN Tourism Forum (ATF 2018) in Thailand from January 22-26. Within the framework of this event, Việt Nam organised many activities, such as the opening of a tourism booth at the fair and “Vietnam Night” to introduce Vietnamese tourism. Việt Nam will host ATF 2019 in Hạ Long City, Quảng Ninh Province.

In 2017, Việt Nam welcomed nearly 13 million international tourists and 74 million domestic tourists. Việt Nam’s tourism industry is closely linked to ASEAN countries and partners for sustainable development of the country’s tourism. — VNS

The Asia Pacific region accounts for 30 per cent of the world’s international tourism receipts

But Bangkok has been engulfed by smog for the past few days, raising questions about how seriously the authorities are taking the air pollution problem in the Thai capital.

Experts warn of the threat to public health if the unhealthy air quality levels persist, urging authorities to enforce mitigation measures to protect people’s health

It has been almost a week since the PM2.5 level in Bangkok rose significantly, forming a thick layer of smog over the city, but authorities are still scrambling to find solutions to help ease the problem

Spraying water over Greater Bangkok’s sky, trying to produce artificial rain haven’t brought any significant results so far.

The Asia Pacific region has outperformed all other regions in terms of growth, with international tourist arrivals increasing an average 7% per year compared to the world average of 4%.
