Russian tourists lured in Southcentral region

The number of flights from Russia’s Far East region to Cam Ranh international airport in the southcentral region will increase from 7-9 to 21 per week as from October 25.

The decision was made at a meeting between the Khanh Hoa provincial People’s Committee and local departments on October 11 to serve the tours co-organized by Vietnam’s Anh Duong Production, Service and Import-Export Company and Russia’s Pegas Turistik Company.

These tours have been in operation since late October, 2011, through which as many as 60,000 Russian have come to visit Vietnam. 60-70 percent of them have preferred staying first in Nha Trang than in Binh Thuan, Ninh Thuan, Phu Yen and Quang Nam.

Hoang Thi Phong Thu, CEO of Anh Duong Production, Service and Import-Export Company, said almost all tourists were pleased to enjoy good accommodation, beautiful scenery and delicious food and often stayed for 7 to 10 days in 3-5 star hotels.

Since early this year, Khanh Hoa has received 383,000 foreign tourists, including 50,000 Russian, up 27 percent compared to the same period last year.

The province is expected to welcome 550,000 foreign tourists by late 2012.
