Hanoi, Vietnam, February 05, 2013 - Vietnam's first luxury tour operator
(www.luxurytravelvietnam.com) has high hopes for expanding its clientele following its successful
show at the recent ATF Laos 2013.
The representatives of Luxury Travel Ltd. from the USA, UK, Laos and Hanoi offices participated
in ATF 2013 as an exhibitors.
The goal is to promote Vietnamese high-end tourism products in the leisure luxury segment and
to find buyers who want to sell unique experiences for discerning travelers.
This year, the company highlights unique experiences as part of Vietnam tourism at the show, as
well as to show that luxury travel is being redefined as experiential rather than simply branding.
Pham Ha, CEO and founder of Luxury Travel, held high level meetings with representatives of a
large number of companies and the leaders of the tourism industry, many from the UK, USA,
Eastern European countries and ASEAN members.
?Headquartered in Vietnam, with our management offices in Laos, ASEAN Tourism Forum 2013 is
a great chance for us to establish our business relationships.There are many tour operators and
travel agents who are interested in our award winning luxury tour operations and who are looking
for new luxury travel products in Vietnam.Tour operators and travel agents at the ATF show
wish to have a single visa for Vietnam, Laos and Cambodia in order to push up tourist arrivals and
th requirement for a Vietnamese visa should be waived and visa fees should be reduced from as
high as 45 USD. This is necessary since other Asean countries are easing visa rules to increase
tourist arrials. said Ha.
He added, With its natural attractions, high-end services, luxury hotels and resorts, and an
impressive convention center, Vietnam is set to receive the luxury, leisure or business traveler
from the world over. Tourists traveling to Vietnam are looking for a more authentic experience and
seek to have a deeper understanding of the country?s culture, food, history and everyday life.?
Tourists, according to Ha, picked Vietnam for their vacations for safety, affordable prices,
authenticity, tropical warm weather, and convenient regional flight connections.
For regional arrival, Luxury Travel Ltd. is enjoying 30% growth from the Philippines market and
saw strong interest at the show from Filipino agents who want to promote Vietnam tourism to
Intra-ASEAN travel to Vietnam is increasing significant, especially the halal market from
Indonesia, Brunei, Singapore and Malaysia thanks to convenient direct flights and no visa
requirements. Short trips and special interest tours are popular to ASEAN tourists and Halong Bay,
one of the New Seven Natural Wonders, is a must see and dream trip for any ASEAN traveler.
Each year, the hosting of ATF is rotated among the member ASEAN countries. This year VNAT,
Vietnam Airlines and 30 other hotels and tour companies attended the show in Laos. ATF 2014 will
take place in Sarawak in Malaysia and the Luxury Travel team will attend ATF next year with even
