Hanoi welcomes five groups of Japanese tourists

The Hanoi Promotion Agency (HPA) is working with Japanese travel companies to welcome five groups of Japanese tourists via charter flights from February 19 to March 4.

Japanese vacationers will visit popular destinations in Hanoi such as Van Mieu-Quoc Tu Giam (Temple of Literature-National University), Thang Long Imperial Citadel, and Thang Long Water Puppet Theatre.

According to the HPA, Japan is one of the leading tourism markets of Hanoi. To offset the declining number of Chinese tourists, the agency will focus on other markets such as Japan, the Republic of Korea, Europe, Australia, and North America.

The effective control of the acute respiratory disease caused by a novel coronavirus (COVID-19) in Vietnam and Hanoi in particular is an advantage over other nations to draw international tourists, the centre said.

Vietnam aims to welcome 2 million Japanese visitors in 2020, according to the Vietnam National Administration of Tourism (VNAT).

Japan will be among the most important tourism markets for Vietnam this year.

Over the years, the VNAT and the Japan National Tourism Organisation have carried out promotions for various Vietnamese destinations. The countries’ localities have also strengthened tourism cooperation, particularly between Hanoi and Tokyo.

In the past 10 years, the number of Japanese arrivals to Vietnam has recorded average growth of 8-10 percent.

In 2019 alone, nearly 500,000 Vietnamese people travelled to Japan, a year-on-year increase of 27.3 percent. Meanwhile, Vietnam received close to 1 million Japanese holidaymakers, up 15.2 percent against the previous year.
