Be anxious when the campaign ends

Based on the actual situation, the target of 2010 of Vietnam's tourism industry is not easy to implement.

In contrast, some countries who is great on tourism including regional countries such as Thailand, Singapore, China, Laos, Cambodia ... continue to decline its price, use promotions to attract tourists.

According to the VNAT, in 2010, the national tourism industry will get about 4.5 to 4.6 million international passengers, up from 18 to 21% compared to 2009. The number of domestic passenger in 2010 will reach about 28 million visitors; tourism revenue reaches $ 4 billion to 4.5 billion, bringing the total tourism product in 2010 accounted for 5.3% of GDP.

Therefore, before the campaign ends, to seize the opportunity to create momentum for domestic tourism, the tourism industry is urgently improve facilities, internationalization, diversification for tourism products.
In 2010, along with the country, Hai Phong tourism is facing a great opportunity to celebrate the exciting festivals of national holidays.
However, to grasp this opportunity, the travel of the city will face a major challenge of change, diversification and increase the attractiveness of different types of tourism products while upgrading quality services, towards further professionalization.

Worries about the drop in domestic tourism in the small range for the coastal city in the famous tourism area known as Do Son and Cat Ba will last because of the seasonal nature of tourism activities in Haiphong. Besides, competitiveness of the cities with the big festivals such as Hanoi, Hue, Da Nang, Da Lat, Ho Chi Minh also creates pressure on the risk of tourist loss in Haiphong.
