The outbound market is showing signs of improvement, which is positive news for the tourism industry. However, the number of tourists interested and registered to buy a tour is still very modest when compared to the time before the epidemic. At Vietravel, the number of visitors registering for outbound tours is stopping at 8-10% before the epidemic season.

The issue of foreign tour prices is still a “barrier” for some Vietnamese tourists. For example, the Southeast Asian tour product is still relatively high compared to the previous time due to the high airfare, tour service in the host country and the problem of increasing gasoline prices recently.

However, there are still products with good prices like Dubai, the price is equal to the time before the epidemic, so it is the most chosen by tourists today.

A lot of choice
