Many Indians visit neighboring countries like Thailand and Singapore because of the country’s proximity to the subcontinent’s largest economy and the largest population. Prior to Covid-19, the average annual growth rate of Indian tourists to Vietnam was 26.7 percent, from 65.6 thousand arrivals in 2015 to 169 thousand turns in 2019.
Indian travelers are increasingly drawn to Vietnam as a more affordable alternative to Thailand’s popular islands and culture. This is due to Vietnam’s enticing combination of stunning natural beauty, welcoming locals, delectable cuisine, and reasonable prices.
Direct flights have made it much simpler to travel between India and Vietnam now.

Starting on September 8, 2022, there will be four weekly return flights between Phu Quoc and Mumbai. These flights will take place on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays, and Sundays.

Planning a trip to Vietnam: what to do.
Vietnam is a safe and appealing tourist destination now that the Covid-19 virus epidemic has been contained. If you’re planning a trip to Vietnam from India, you’ll need to book a package tour with a reputable company like Vivutravel that can assist you in obtaining a visa and creating an itinerary that best fits your interests and budget.
A word of caution: after more than 2 years in business, Covid has left many Vietnamese travel agencies with only their websites, 1 or 2 employees working from home, and a lot of hope. Such tour operators lack the financial wherewithal to provide you with organized travel, and you run the risk of being left holding the bill if they go bankrupt and are unable to pay for the hotels, domestic flights, etc. that you have booked through them.
Before sending an inquiry to a Vietnam travel agency, it is recommended that you do some preliminary research on the company using tools like TripAdvisor and Facebook as well as the responsiveness of their website and customer service staff. Request a business license and, more importantly, an international travel license from your Vietnam tour operator before booking and paying any deposits.
To sum up:
Short, convenient flights (around 5 hours) between Vietnam and India allow visitors from both countries to experience the country’s rich culture, religions, and cuisine.
