The highest rated indicators of Vietnam are competitive prices (ranked 15th), security and safety (ranked 33rd), ground transport infrastructure and airports (ranked 15th). In addition, Vietnam also scored for natural environmental resources (ranked 24th), entertainment and resort resources (ranked 29th). However, the report also pointed out some weaknesses of Vietnam such as tourism infrastructure (86th), priority for tourism (87th) and environmental sustainability (94th).

TTDI is an upgrade of the WEF’s Tourism Competitiveness Index, based on the new context after the Covid-19 pandemic. The index is ranked based on 5 main groups including Operating Environment, Supporting Policies and Conditions, Infrastructure, Drivers of Tourism Demand, and Tourism Sustainability. The index is based on 17 areas including security and safety; health and hygiene; globalization policy; tourism and transportation infrastructure; natural and cultural resources; environmental sustainability…

Besides Vietnam, there was also Indonesia, which increased by 3.4%, ranked 44th and Saudi Arabia increased by 2.3%, ranked 33rd. In Asia, Malaysia dropped 9 levels to 38th, India dropped eight levels to 54th.

According to the assessment of the Tourism Information Center, the Vietnam National Administration of Tourism, the report reflects the achievements in disease prevention in Vietnam. Moreover, there is a decision to restore tourism and reopen all domestic and international tourism after the pandemic being under control.
