Vietnam, India enhance spiritual and health tourism

India will continue boosting cooperation in tourism with Vietnam, including the promotion of spiritual and health tourism links.

Indian Consul General in Ho Chi Minh City Smita Pant confirmed this at a tourism promotion seminar in HCM City today/ on Thursday. Smita Pant said around 85,000 Indian tourists visited Vietnam last year, while Vietnamese visitors to India reached about 20,000.

The figures are moderate compared to the two countries' tourism development potential. The Indian government will launch more promotional programs and offer short-term visas for Vietnamese tourists.

The launch of direct air flights between Vietnam and India by Vietjet Air and Air India will make it easier for holiday-makers of the two nations to visit each other.
