Nearly half a million Vietnamese tourists visit Singapore last year
VOV.VN - Vietnam is one of Singapore’s top 10 source markets for tourists, with more than 434,000 visitors heading to the island state last year, according to data released by the Singapore Tourism Board (STB).
Recently, the STB moved to strengthen its long-term partnership with Southeast Asia's leading travel platform Traveloka, through a one-year Memorandum of Cooperation (MoC) signed on January 17.
The signing of the MoC took place at a time when Singapore was making efforts to accelerate its tourism recovery in Southeast Asia.
Accordingly, the MoC will target consumers through information and data sharing. Additionally, both sides will strive to introduce new Singaporean products and enhance visitor experience on the Traveloka platform.
Caesar Indra, president of Traveloka, revealed that Singapore is known to be one of the top foreign destinations in the region. Last year, the island state recorded an increase of up to 80% in total searches and transactions originating from Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, Vietnam, and the Philippines for all products in Singapore compared to the previous year.
The number of tourists heading to Singapore reached 13.6 million, including 4.78 million tourists from Southeast Asia. Among them, Vietnam made up one of Singapore's top 10 source markets for tourists with more than 434,000 visitors.
