With many prominent destinations such as Da Nang, Nha Trang, Phu Quoc, and Da Lat, Vietnam has risen to become the top destination in Southeast Asia for Korean holidaymakers.

Nearly 850,000 Korean holidaymakers visit Vietnam in April.

The number of tourists from Seoul to Da Nang, Nha Trang, and Phu Quoc in April were reported at 173, 865, 141,130 and 53,680 passengers, respectively.

To meet the surging demand, the RoK’s low-cost airlines have also increased flights to Vietnam, mostly on routes to Nha Trang and Phu Quoc.

From May 2024, T'way Air has launched an additional daily Busan - Nha Trang flight. The total number of direct routes operated by T'way Air to  Vietnam has increased to three with departures from Incheon, Cheongju, and Busan.

From June 19, the Daegu - Nha Trang route will also be reoperated. The route was shut down after first operating in May 2019 before the spread of COVID-19 pandemic.

Eastar Jet, which already operates flies from Incheon to Nha Trang, also said it will launch a new route to Phu Quoc starting from July 19 with a frequency of seven round trips per week.
