The sector grew by 30% in 2017, and this strong growth momentum has continued into 2018.

Widescale acceptance of the industry by government and locals alike
The Vietnamese authorities have realized the vast potential that the tourism presents to drive the economy of the country and as such have implemented policies friendly to international tourists. They have developed infrastructures such as transportation, drainage networks and public spaces to make the country more accessible to visitors. They have also improved the social offerings such as theaters, museums, and educational establishments so that tourists will feel comfortable when they visit the country. The government has also facilitated Tour Operators and Wholesalers by providing an enabling environment for them to sell to clients, which makes it easy for anyone to book a package deal to Vietnam regardless of where in the world they are located. The local populations, whether in the larger cities or the more remote and exotic destinations, have been sensitized to the importance of tourism to their local economies and by extension the economy of Vietnam. This has resulted in locals accepting and feeling a sense of responsibility for the success of tourism. This is good news for international visitors, who now more than ever before are welcomed with open arms in Vietnam.
