Moreover, large hotels in Hoi An spend 30 to 50 rooms free everyday for these VIP guests. “Russian are one of the fastidious tourists, Russia is also a potential market but it seems not to be promoted carefully yet” Mr Tran van Nhan, Deputy Department Head of Tourism and Commerce Hoi An said.

Moreover, local tourists also increase.” Mr Tran Van Nhan said. He also added “We are planning to invite Russian teachers to fast train the hotel's staff, but this is just a temporary solution. In long term, we will open classes learning Russian in Hoi An, serving the demand of this potential market”.
