bichio has indicated that this thread is about Vietnam

Ho Chi Minh City received a record of over 1. 492 million foreign visitors in the first nine months of this year, up 36 percent against the same period last year, and 83 percent of this year's plan.
The figure included more than 1.18 million arrivals by air, a 25 percent increase.
The US continued to take the lead among the top ten markets of the city's tourism service. The others who follow include Japan, Taiwan, the Republic of Korea, Australia, France, China, Malaysia, Singapore and Canada. It is expected that in the coming period the numbers of tourists arriving in HCM City from potential markets, including ASEAN member countries and China, will increase sharply.
Nguyen Thi Lap Quoc, Director of HCM City's Tourism Service, attributed the increase of foreign arrivals to a series of policies and measures on tourism promotion such as exemption of entry visas for tourists from Japan, the Republic of Korea, Northern European countries and ASEAN member countries, and the opening of more cheap air routes.
Travel businesses are actively diversifying their tour programmes to meet tourists' increasing demands. They have promoted cooperation with other provinces and neighbouring countries to establish new tours that take place during traditional festivals and cultural activities.
In the past nines months, Vietnamese travelling to foreign countries also increased sharply.
The tourism service grossed a turnover of 9,636 billion VND in the past nine months, fulfilling 78 percent of the plan.

HI Bichio,

I checked your last 10 postings and they are all this same type of posting. I am a bit 'confused' as to the benefit of these postings... Could you please stick to answering questions on Vietnam rather than starting this many new threads about the country? It's a much better way of promoting the country.

I think your posts would be FAR better off in the Vietnam travel guide, where members can leave information concerning a particular destination as part of the Members Comments area. This is far more likely to be read by people actually interested in travelling to Vietnam than in the forum...

Cheers,

Sam
ps. from now on, any new threads started are going to be removed...
