Poor infrastructure, services hamper growth of seatravel

Vietnam welcomed nearly 285,000 sea travellers last year, an increase of 67.7 percent from 2015. The increase left airline travel behind, which posted growth of 31.7 percent in 2016, while travel by land has been steadily declining in recent years.

According to Saigontourist CEO Vo Anh Tai, the country has a great outlook for sea travel since it is blessed with a long coastline and beautiful beaches.
