According to the official, more than 65,000 Indian tourists came to the city and adjacent localities in 2017, a rise of 10 percent year-on-year, putting India among top 15 markets with the largest number of visitors to the HCM City.

He voiced his belief that Vietnam and HCM City will see a surge of Indian tourists in the coming time. The city is working to have more Indian restaurants and quality accommodations to serve this market in the expectation of a three- or four-fold increase in the number of Indian tourists to the city when a direct air route connecting Ho Chi Minh City and New Delhi opens. 

The booths of HCM City Tourism Department and various Vietnamese travel firms attracted large numbers of visitors at the SATTE 2018 that took place in New Delhi from January 31 to February 2.

The event offered chances for Vietnam to introduce the country’s image as a friendly destination while bolstering the friendship between Vietnam and HCM City in particular with India through tourism cooperation.
