With this momentum, the figure is projected to exceed 4 million visitors this year.

After reaching the milestone of 1 million visitors for the first time in 2015, tourist arrivals from the RoK to Vietnam jumped to 2.42 million in 2017 and 3.44 million last year.

Vietnam has emerged as a popular destination for Koreans, due to its diverse landscapes and low costs.

Notably, in the first four months of 2019, visitors from the RoK accounted for 29.3 percent of the total 847,700 foreigners to the central province of Thua Thien-Hue, home to the capital of the last feudal dynasty in Vietnam, becoming the largest source of tourists to the province.
