Number of Vietnamese tourists to Taiwan grows

The number of Vietnamese tourists visiting Taiwan increased a brisk 22.4 percent from 2016, according to Vietnamese government statistics.

According to Vietnamese tourism authorities, 150,142 nationals visited Taiwan between January 1 and March 31 this year, a 22.4 percent increase from the same period in 2016. Taiwan was the 6th most popular vacation destination for Vietnamese tourists for the first three months of the year. The top three spots went to mainland China (940,000 visitors), South Korea (530,000 visitors) and Japan (200,000 visitors).

In an effort to diversify sources of tourism, Taiwan has relaxed visa restrictions on Vietnamese citizens. The number of Vietnamese tourists increased from 140,000 in 2015 to 190,000 in 2016. The 40,000 tourists visiting Taiwan in the first two months of 2017 represents

a 91.4 percent year-on-year increase.

The Vietnamese government hosted a major tourism exhibition in Hanoi on April 6, in which Taiwan's tourism officials led a delegation of 40 local companies to promote the island's popular attractions.
