Luxury Travel Vietnam Wraps Up a Successful WTM Latin America
Vietnam’s First Luxury Travel and Tour Operator (www.luxurytravelvietnam.com) to Attract
Long Haul Travelers from South America.
Hanoi, Vietnam, May 11, 2013 - Vietnam’s first luxury tour operator
(www.luxurytravelvietnam.com) has pinned high hopes on expanding its Latin America clientele
following its successful show at the recent World Travel Market Latin America 2013.
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 luxury tourism industry. Luxury Travel Ltd. is an
Asian pioneer in venturing into long haul markets such as Latin America.
The WTM Latin America Exhibition took place from April 23-25 and attracted a total of 1,230
exhibitors from all over the world. World Travel Market Latin America brings the world to Latin
America and promotes Latin America to the world. It will be staged annually in the economic
powerhouse of Sao Paulo, Brazil.
The Luxury Travel Ltd. (www.luxurytravelvietnam.com) delegation returned home last week,
satisfied and very optimistic that visitor arrivals from Latin America (especially Brazil) will grow in
the future and at a faster pace than before.
The team believes that Vietnam is the ‘new’ exotic destination for Brazilian travelers from this
year onwards. The meetings went well with the media, as well as with local trade partners from
Brazil and the Latin American region.
“Three years ago there few bookings from the region and now there are far more, thanks in large
part to our wholesales tour operator, Lameco Viajes. We now have a new website in Spanish
www.luxurytravels.es, a representative office and a Spanish speaking team to tap into this
emerging market.” says Pham Ha.
Vietnam now has world-class hotels and resorts, beaches, and cuisine, in addition to its natural
beauty, rich history, and traditional culture.
Travelers from Latin America 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.
The country received 6.8 million international arrivals in 2012, and the number of travelers from
Latin American has increased annually over the last 3 years.
“The volume of long haul holiday tourists and first time visitors is increasing from Brazil and the
Indochinese Peninsula has the potential to exploit its strength as a ‘choice’ holiday destination for
the Brazilian market and Latin America since Air France, Malaysia Airlines, Qatar Airways,
Emirates Airlines, Thai Airways fly to Brazil from their hubs, with easy access to other Latin
America countries.” added Pham Ha.
Latin America is in a strong financial position at the moment and Pham Ha stressed the
importance of diversifying markets by participating in the Spanish and Portuguese speaking
markets, which provide an ideal platform for the latest contemporary trends and the ability to
communicate and establish business partnerships with experts and tourism companies.
During the exhibition, Luxury Travel Ltd. also announced the appointment of a representation
company based in Uruguay, as the official representation company for Luxury Travel Ltd. in South
America, including Brazil. This appointment confirmed how serious Luxury Travel Ltd. is about the
South American market.
Vietnam-based Luxury Travel Ltd (www.luxurytravelvietnam.com) is a long established Asian
specialist in the art of travel and serves today’s most sophisticated travelers with luxury privately
