More Muslim travellers from Indonesia, Malaysia, India, and the Middle East are visiting Vietnam.

Ho Chi Minh City’s Department of Culture, Sports, and Tourism deputy director, La Quoc Khanh, said that the number of tourists from Muslim countries, especially Indonesia and Malaysia, has gone up considerably in recent years.

Most Indonesian and Malaysian tourism firms have said that tourists visit Vietnam because the country offers affordable tours and commodity prices that fit their budget.

Many carriers from the Middle East – including Emirates, Etihad, Qatar Airways, and Turkish Airlines – have opened direct routes to Vietnam, helping to raise the number of Muslim tourist arrivals to the Southeast Asian nation.

Muslim tourists are now a major target for Vietnam which are more than 972 million Muslims resident in Asia Pacific alone.

Vietnam has some distance to cover to bring its restaurants and hotels up to speed on providing Halal food and gaining a better understanding of what constitutes a Muslim-friendly travel environment.

About Akhi Soufyan

If you see goodness from me, then that goodness is from The Creator. You should be thankful to The Creator for all of that. Cause I'm not the architect of that. I'm only the...the recipient. If you see weakness or shortcoming in me it's from my own weakness or shortcoming. And I ask The Creator and the people to forgive me for that. _______________________________ Website eigenaar voor een betere wereld en doel, niet gericht op verdiensten van geld maar goede daden.

Want ik ben daar niet de architect van, ik ben alleen de ontvanger.
