The increasing trade exchange between Vietnam and South Korea
In recent years, Vietnam has been one of the most popular tourist destinations of Korean people. In the first 7 months of 2019, the number of Korean tourists coming to Vietnam reached nearly 2.5 million, up 22.1% on-year.
A 15-day visa waiver for South Korean tourists to Vietnam and an increase in the frequency of direct flights connecting major cities in both countries have also contributed to making Vietnam a leading choice for South Korean tourists.
On the other hand, the representative of the Korea Tourism Organization said that the number of Vietnamese tourists to South Korea increased sharply each year. Vietnam is the country with the highest growth of tourists to Korea in the world. According to aviation data analysis page OAG Schedules Analyzer, the number of flights from Vietnam to South Korea accounted for 44.5% of Vietnam’s international flight volume.
The trend of traveling between two countries is further strengthened when the policy of granting Korean visa was loosen for Vietnamese people, especially residents with household registration in three major cities including Hanoi, Ho Chi Minh City and Danang at the end of 2018.
