Vietnam has transformed itself, and it is increasingly playing a significant role in global and regional issues. The country is proud of its long-standing cultural traditions and charming landscapes. The history and development of Vietnam has produced a legacy of grand culture, history and artistic heritage yielding strong tourism attractions. Moreover, the strength of Vietnam also lies in its location in relation to neighbouring international gateways. This provides opportunities for the country to develop an intra-regional tourism strategy.

With a goal of identifying the extent to which Vietnam provides the destination attributes sought by American tourists, this book uses a variety of variables including socio-demographics, travel characteristics and behavioural intentions. In addition to its academic significance, this research done by the authors should provide tourism...
