HCM City welcome three millionth foreign visitor

On Dec. 21, a welcoming ceremony for the three millionth foreign tourist to the city this year was held by the Ho Chi Minh City Department of Culture, Sports and Tourism (HCMDC) and the municipal Tourism Association. Nguyen Thi Hong, deputy chairwoman of the municipal People’s Committee, welcomed Nina Fedorava, the lucky visitor from Russia to the city, at the ceremony. Nina has become the three-millionth foreign visitor to Ho Chi Minh City this year after arriving in the city Tuesday morning. This lucky visitor was awarded a gift of free return ticket for HCMC-Moscow route that Vietnam Airlines operates.

Two other Russian visitors, who took the same flight with Nina Fedorova, were also welcomed on the occasion. The 2,999,999th and 3,000,001st guests each received a free return ticket on domestic routes of Vietnam Airlines. Vietnam Airlines is operating three flights from HCMC to Moscow and another three flights from Hanoi to Russia’s capital city every week.

According to La Quoc Khanh, deputy director of the department, Ho Chi Minh City is expected to welcome 3.1 million foreign arrivals this year, a year-on-year increase of 20 percent. To reach that target, the city is making efforts in diversifying tourism products to attract more foreign tourists to the city.
