The capital city of Hà Nội is among the top 10 domestic destinations searched for by Vietnamese tourists on booking.com, based on the data from the online travel agency.
According to the forecast of booking.com in 2023, 74 per cent of Vietnamese tourists believe that travel is always a valuable experience for them, and over three-quarters, 78 per cent, believe that summer is the best time to travel.
Despite concerns about the global economic crisis, travellers do not intend to abandon their travel plans. Instead, they are considering more cautious budgeting for their trips.
Data from the online travel platform shows that destinations with beautiful beaches remain the top choice for Vietnamese tourists this summer. Đà Nẵng continues to hold the top position and is the most searched domestic destination by Vietnamese tourists for summer 2023, followed by Nha Trang and Phú Quốc.
Beside beaches, local tourists are also concerned about big cities such as Hà Nội and HCM City, as well as less bustling cities like Đà Lạt and Hội An Ancient Town.
All of these cities are on the list of the top 10 most searched destinations for this summer by domestic tourists that includes Đà Nẵng, Nha Trang, Phú Quốc, HCM City, Đà Lạt, Hội An, Hà Nội, Hạ Long, Huế, and Bà Rịa Vũng Tàu.
Particularly, Hà Nội has risen to 7th position in the list after being absent from the top 10 last summer.
In addition to domestic destinations, Booking.com also reveals popular international destinations chosen by Vietnamese tourists, the top of which is Bangkok in Thailand, followed by Singapore, Paris, Tokyo, Seoul and New York.
The Hà Nội Department of Tourism said the city welcomed more than 10 million travelers, up some 54 per cent over the same period last year. The city has set a target of attracting 22 million tourists this year, including three million international travellers.
