 April 30th Holiday: Slight increase in the number of domestic tourists

This year, although April 30th and May 1st holiday season is quite long, the number of domestic visitors to Nha Trang is not expected to increase compared to previous years due to the shortage of accommodation.

Vietnamese tourists "avoid" Nha Trang

Room rates of 3 to 5 star hotels during the holiday season increased slightly compared to the previous days. Hotels from two stars or less also registered to increase prices. However, finding hotel rooms in Nha Trang is very difficult, especially at 3 to 5-star hotels. Big hotels on streets of Tran Phu, Pham Van Dong, Tue Tinh, Hung Vuong etc. are almost full. Mr. Truong Quang Chien, Marketing Director of Queen Ann Hotel (Tran Phu Street, Nha Trang City), said that the hotel has 284 rooms, 50% of rooms have been reserved from 1 month ago.

Tourists were experiencing the adventure game in the mine tunnels at Vinpearl Land Nha Trang.

According to the estimation of the Tourism Department, the April 30th and May 1st Holiday Occasion this year (from 28-4 to 1-5), Khanh Hoa will welcome about 135,000 tourists, increased 7.41% compared with the same period of 2017; Of which, domestic tourists will reach about 103,000 (increased 2.53%), international visitors will reach 32,000 (increased  26.89%). Hotel occupancy rate is estimated at 90-98% at 3-5 star hotels and 70-75% at 2-star or lower hotel group. According to the travel enterprises, the number domestic tourists to Nha Trang will not increase because of the difficulty in finding a hotel room. On the other hand, other newly-grown destinations such as Binh Dinh, Phu Yen etc. will attract the tourists of Nha Trang, especially Phu Quoc is now an alternative of many tourists instead of Nha Trang on this holiday occasion.

It was heard that many Chinese tourists would come to Nha Trang on this occasion and it would be difficult to find a hotel room there, therefore, domestic tourists considered more carefully about visiting Nha Trang”, Information from Nha Trang branch of Vietravel reveals that this occasion, the company will welcome 700 tourists to Nha Trang, reduced 30% compared to 2017.
