Vietnam has emerged as one of the top destinations for travelers from Thailand, Australia, Japan and Singapore, according to a recent survey compiled by Visa and the Pacific Asia Travel Association (PATA).
The survey included 6,714 respondents from 13 countries and territories and showed that among all the future travelers who are most likely to visit Vietnam in the next two years, 17 percent are from Thailand. Meanwhile, 16 percent are from Australia, and 11 percent are from Japan and Singapore.
Most of the potential tourists to Vietnam ranked natural scenery, new places and affordability as their main motivations for visiting. Most of them are single and prefer to stay at four-star hotels.
They will budget more than US$1,200 for their next vacation and pay more for good food and opportunities to experience new cultures, the survey found.
