“The country attracts the visitors due to its geographical location and the vast variety of cultural experiences guests can enjoy — it’s so different from north to south — plus it offers great beach holidays, which are a must for most Russian travelers. “There are continuous openings of new hotels and quality properties all over the country, covering different budgets. Specifically, Phu Quoc has become a very popular charter destination, which immediately brings up the numbers of arrivals.” Thailand, by comparison, is no longer perceived as a “cheap” destination, especially with the strengthening of the Thai baht, added Roemer. “Vietnam is seen as a newcomer, where people can get good value for money holidays,” he said. “Majority of Russian travelers who regularly go abroad have been to Thailand at least once or twice, so Vietnam becomes the next alternative destination for them to explore.” But at this growth rate, will Vietnam go from alternative to mainstream and even topple Thailand as Russians’ favorite destination in Asia-Pacific? Roemer does not think so. “Vietnam has of course all the potential to continue increasing the volume and numbers of Russian tourists, but I think Thailand will remain the key country in the coming years in volume,” he said. Comparing apples to apples, however, Vietnam is already on the same par as Thailand with Russian arrivals. Last year Vietnam received 15.5 million arrivals, of which Russian tourists totaled 606,637, or 4 percent of total arrivals. Thailand received 38.3 million arrivals, of which a similar 4 percent are Russians (or 1.5 million). Russia is the sixth largest source market for Vietnam, which counts China as number one, followed by South Korea, Japan, Taiwan, and the U.S.
