Low quality, hygiene and sanitation are the biggest turn-offs for travellers in Vietnam, according to a recent survey conducted by the Hanoi-based Institute of Tourism Development Research.

The survey polled 1,470 tourists, including locals and foreigners, to gauge the factors that influence the country’s tourism competitiveness.

The survey showed that travellers are most likely to be turned off by tourism destinations and accommodation where hygiene and sanitation facilities are inadequate and of poor quality, said Nguyen Anh Tuan, the director of the research institute.

Nguyen Thanh Binh, a senior official at the national administration of tourism, admitted that sanitation and hygiene are an important factor for many tourists when it comes to choosing their destination.
