Vietnam Attracts UK Travelers
Vietnam is turning out to be an progressively appealing place to go for United kingdom tourists, based on a new survey published by the United Kingdom’s Postal Service.
Based on the Postal Service’s Fastest Growing Currencies survey published for June-August 2012, demand for the Vietnamese Dong was the fastest-growing currency exchange in the UK in the summer of 2012.
The Currency review by a retail postal service company that provides mail and financial products in the United Kingdom, measured interest in travel to international attractions of UK travellers determined by foreign currency purchases.
The yearly analysis pointed out an annual increase of 68 % in Vietnamese Dong purchases – indicating a rapid increase in Vietnamese travel holidays, supported by the launch of direct air routes to Vietnam late last year and some very attractive holiday resorts being opened.
National flag carrier Vietnam Airlines introduced Gatwick to Hanoi service in December 2011, these direct flights reduced travel time by a number of hours.
A couple of examples of new vacation resorts are the Anantara Mui Ne – south east of Saigon/Ho Chi Minh City – in April, 2012 and Intercontinental’s Danang Sun Peninsula Resort in June 2012.
Another reason for the sharp increase of Britons vacationing in Vietnam is the recent opening of new holiday resorts. Anantara Mui Ne officially opened its doors in April this year, while the InterContinental Danang Sun Peninsula Resort made its grand opening in June. Additional international hotels are likely to open soon enough, including Movenpick Hotels & Resorts International’s are due to open 2015.
A good exchange rate and convenient travel connections will continue to make Vietnam a popular destination for Britons in the future.
Enjoy your trip to Vietnam!
