Having traveled to golf in Vietnam on and off for the last 8 years I have seen a huge increase in golf popularity, both among local Vietnamese and visiting golfers. According to the Vietnam Golf Association there are around 35,000 Vietnamese that golf and close to 80,000 expatriate golfers, the latter mostly Korean and Japanese working in Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City. Hanoi is one of the top tourist destinations, after two rounds of golf, you will have more time to stroll around or discover the ancient and charming city dated back 11 Century. Add to this around 50,000 golf tourists who travel in Vietnam each year and play on the 35 or so golf courses in Vietnam and you have the makings of some busy days.
