An uptick in visitors from China led the spike in volume, setting the stage for a strong first quarter result, said the Department, noting that the number of inbound visitors from the EU, US and Australia tapered off significantly compared to the first quarter of last year.

Thanks to loosened visa requirements in China, outbound Chinese tourists to Vietnam are expected to continue to boom in 2017 because of the proximity of Vietnam and the fact that travel is less expensive for them compared to other global destinations.
