Vietnamese people look for more advanced services after the epidemic28/04/2022
According to the latest survey on Google travel search, Vietnamese people are ready for post-Covid-19 trips.
Google has just released search data in Vietnam in March. Accordingly, Vietnam is forming a group of people called “revenge tourists”. These are people who want to travel again after the epidemic, are willing to pay for premium options, eager to move to make up for the time gap because of Covid-19.
Searches for “best luxury hotel” increased by 71% in Vietnam. This is a trend not only in Vietnam but also in other Southeast Asian countries, according to Hermione Joye, Director of Tourism and Thematic Search at Google Asia-Pacific. “Malaysia’s figure is 120% and Singapore’s is 1,962% – amazing,” she said.
Vietnamese people are gradually becoming more comfortable with traveling abroad. In January, Vietnamese people’s intention to go abroad was only 25% compared with the same period in 2019. But this number increased to 50% in March, when tourism opened. According to statistics, Vietnamese people prefer to go to big cities like Bangkok, Dubai, Paris, Osaka, New Delhi. In which, the search for Singapore leads.
The demand for domestic travel is still high, in which, customers tend to rent cars and transit bus services increase steadily. This shows that Vietnamese people have a need to move to many different places and still have a sense of prevention. In terms of domestic destinations, the resort trend is popular, with the most sought-after beaches and islands such as Phu Quoc, Nha Trang, Phu Quy, Quy Nhon, Vung Tau, Da Nang… Da Lat is also in the group. Commonly searched.
Demand from international visitors to Vietnam improved significantly in the first quarter. By the end of March, tourists from the US, Australia, France, Singapore and Japan have a high desire to travel to Vietnam. Accordingly, Ho Chi Minh City and Hanoi are the top destinations. My Tho and Bac Ninh are two provinces with significant growth in search results, with 75%. However, since visitors from China often contribute a significant part to Vietnam’s tourism, full recovery remains a challenge, concluded Hermione Joye.
