The tourism sector earned total revenues of 720 trillion VND (31 billion USD).

At the 26th World Travel Awards (WTA), Vietnam was honoured as the “World’s Leading Heritage Destination 2019”. The country was chosen as Asia’s Leading Culinary Destination at the WTA awards for Asia and Oceania last October and also received the World’s Best Golf Destination 2019 award at the international World Golf Awards held in the UAE the same month.

As host of the 2019 National Tourism Year, Khanh Hoa has held nearly 60 events throughout the year, including the ninth Nha Trang – Khanh Hoa Sea Festival, the 2019 Miss Universe Vietnam finals, and the Challenge Vietnam 2019. Besides, 35 related events were held in other cities and provinces across the country.

Khanh Hoa’s efforts have paid off with a 27.5 percent increase in the number of international arrivals to 3.6 million and a 24 percent rise in tourism revenue to more than 27 trillion VND.

At the ceremony, Khanh Hoa handed over the hosting role of the National Tourism Year to the northern province of Ninh Binh, which will chair the 2020 National Tourism Year under the theme of “Hoa Lu – thousand-year-old ancient capital”.
