Viet­nam Travel Mis­sion with the theme ‘Viet­nam – Amaz­ing des­ti­na­tion for In­dian tourists’, or­gan­ised by Em­bassy of the S.R. of Viet­nam in as­so­ci­a­tion with Vi­etJet Air, DMCs from Viet­nam and Om Tourism, saw in pres­ence rep­re­sen­ta­tives of the travel trade from In­dia. At the event, H.E. Ton Sinh Thanh, Am­bas­sador of Viet­nam in In­dia, said that In­dia and Viet­nam are cel­e­brat­ing 45 years of es­tab­lish­ment of diplo­matic ties this year. He men­tioned that Viet­nam is home to 8 UNESCO World Her­itage Sites, well­p­re­served his­toric relics and beau­ti­ful beaches and has great po­ten­tial for In­di­ans.

“In­dian trav­ellers can find the essence of In­dian cul­ture in Viet­nam through Hindu tem­ples in Ho Chi Minh City, My Son sanc­tu­ary or even at the nu­mer­ous In­dian restau­rants. Ap­prox­i­mately 66,000 In­dian tourists vis­ited Viet­nam in 2015, while record­ing an av­er­age of 32 per cent growth an­nu­ally from 2010-2015, but this still re­mains a small num­ber com­pared to the num­ber of In­dian tourists who travel over­seas ev­ery year.”

He cred­ited that this num­ber could boost with di­rect air con­nec­tiv­ity. “Vi­etJet Air is plan­ning a code­share di­rect flight be­tween Delhi and Ho Chi Minh City sched­uled in July 2017 which will def­i­nitely add more traf­fic from In­dia to Viet­nam,” he re­vealed.

Ask­ing tour op­er­a­tors and travel agents to pro­mote Viet­nam as a tourist des­ti­na­tion, he said that Viet­nam Tourism would or­gan­ise sev­eral ac­tiv­i­ties such as road­shows, par­tic­i­pa­tion in fairs and ex­hi­bi­tions for them. “Fam trips will be or­gan­ised dur­ing this year to show­case Viet­nam as a safe, friendly and at­trac­tive des­ti­na­tion,” he said.

Ap­prox­i­mately 66,000 In­dian tourists vis­ited Viet­nam in 2015, while record­ing an av­er­age of 32% growth an­nu­ally from 2010-2015, but this still re­mains a small num­ber

Nguyen Bac Toan, Deputy Com­mer­cial Man­ager, Vi­etJet Air, also gave a pre­sen­ta­tion at the event and in­formed about the di­rect flight be­tween Delhi and Ho Chi Minh city. There were also pre­sen­ta­tions by var­i­ous DMCs and part­ners from Viet­nam at the road­show.
