Over 7,000 foreign tourists, mostly Chinese, entered Vietnam
through the Lao Cai International Border Gate during the first seven
days of the Lunar New Year, according to local authorities.
Tran Vu Hoang, Chief of the Customs Office at Lao Cai International
Border Gate, said a large number of Chinese families chose to visit
Vietnam over Tet.
During the first days of Tet,
many Chinese people queued at the Lao Cai international border gate,
reflecting the success of Lao Cai authorities’ policies to attract
domestic and foreign tourists.
