VOV.VN - Vietnam along with Thailand, India, the Philippines, Papua New Guinea, Indonesia, Mongolia, and the Republic of Korea, ranked mid-table for tourism recovery, according to the travel-ready index 2022 released by the Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU).
This comes after Aljazeera.com revealed the report by the EIU listed Fiji, Sri Lanka, Malaysia, and the Maldives among the countries with the strongest position to revive their pandemic-battered tourism industries among Asia-Pacific destinations.
The EIU also ranked Singapore, Australia, Bangladesh, New Zealand, Nepal, and Cambodia among the top 10 destinations which are best placed for tourism recovery.
Elsewhere, the index outlines that Hong Kong (China) has the worst prospects due to its restrictive border policies.
After Hong Kong (China), other destinations such as Brunei, Bhutan, Taiwan (China), Samoa, Vanuatu, Japan, China, and Laos also ranked as the destinations with the least favourable conditions for tourism moving forward.
The EIU said the top performers in the index have all moved to ease visa and entry restrictions since 2021 or earlier.
The index measures the positive conditions for tourism based on the importance of the sector to the economy, local vaccination coverage, ease of travel, and the convenience of returning home.
