Ten British travel firms surveying Vietnamese tourism

June 25, 2006


Ho Chi Minh City-based Transviet Tour Company welcomed the famtrip delegation on June 22, including 10 leading travel firms and reporters from the Selling Haul, a British tourist magazine, who came and surveyed Vietnamese tourism.

The survey lasts for six days and takes place in Hanoi, Ha Long Bay, Da Nang central city, the ancient town of Hoi An, Vinh Long province and Ho Chi Minh City.

The delegation is expected to meet representatives from the Vietnam Airlines, leading travel businesses of Vietnam and several five-star hotels to learn about tours and quality of tourism products in Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City.

The delegation plans to make a promotion campaign for Vietnamese destination in order to attract tourists from Britain and Europe when they return to their country.

British tourists often require and are ready to pay for luxury services but most of them have poor information about Vietnamese tourism. There is yet to have a non-stop air route between Vietnam and Britain so British tourists must transit at one place, mainly in Paris, Bangkok, Singapore or Hong Kong if they travel to Vietnam, said Nguyen Tien Dat from Transviet’s branch in Hanoi.

The programme to receive the famtrip delegation is organised and sponsored by the Vietnam Airlines and the Transviet, together with support from some big hotels in Hanoi, Da Nang, Hoi An and Ho Chi Minh City.

Nearly 37,000 British tourists have travelled to Vietnam in the first five months of the year, an increase of 8.5% compared to the same period last year, according to the National Administration of Tourism.
