The service industry in Vietnam accounts for 38.2% of the country's GDP. In the period between 1994 and 2004, the contribution to the GDP by the service sector averaged about 6%. Tourism plays a significant role in the economy of Vietnam and in 2012 the country received approximately 6.8 million visitors from different countries around the world. The number grew to more than 7 million in 2013. Vietnam has emerged as an attractive destination for tourists from different parts of the world, and according to the trip advisor, the top 25 destinations in Asia included major cities in Vietnam such as Halong, Hoian, and Ho Chi Minh City. In 2016, Vietnam attained a record of 10 million visitors from around the world, which represents a 26% increase from the previous year. Vietnam has now become the most favorable tourist destination in South East Asia. Many international and local tour operators in the country offer tours to ethnic minority groups, photography tours, bicycle and walking tours, kayaking trips, and multi-country trips, especially with the neighboring countries of Laos, Cambodia, and Thailand. Tourists from foreign countries can travel freely in Vietnam as this was made possible by 1997. The country’s economy has transitioned from an agrarian-based to almost a modern service-based economy, and more than a third of the GDP is generated by the service sector which includes transportation and hotel and catering industry.

Ecotourism is a booming business that many tour operators cite as being helpful to nature. Every year, millions of people descend on protected and pristine natural areas to observe rare species. However, a new report casts doubt on the value of this form of tourism. In fact, it suggests that ecotourism is more damaging than helpful to nature. Details are in a report published in the journal 'Trends in Ecology and Evolution'. Researchers believe tourists are disrupting animals in their natural habitat. They pointed to a recent event where sea turtles in Costa Rica had problems laying their eggs because of the hordes of tourists who had congregated to watch the turtles' nesting habits.
The report says that ecotourism is making animals bolder and that this could endanger the animals. A regular human presence might make animals tamer and less cautious about other animals around them, and this could put them at risk of being attacked by their natural threats. "Then they will suffer higher mortality when they encounter real predators," the report says. It added: "When animals interact in 'benign' ways with humans, they may let down their guard." The report said it was essential, "to develop a more comprehensive understanding of how different species in different situations respond to human visitation and under what precise conditions human exposure might put them at risk.”
