Hanoi, Vietnam, November 25, 2013 – His two British representatives and Pham Ha, CEO and founder
of Luxury Travel Ltd. (www.luxurytravels.asia) held high level meetings with representatives of
a large number of companies and the leading specialists of the luxury tourism industry.
“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 thanks to new
direct flights and huge demand from British travelers.” said Pham Ha.
“Vietnam is getting more and more popular in the UK and Ireland markets and we have many new
contracts and accounts. We are seeing particular demand for Myanmar and the biggest growth is
expected for this country, which is becoming more popular in the UK due to political changes and
new developments. This year again, Luxury Travel is an official supporter of Responsible Tourism
Day at WTM”
He stressed that the UK market is very important to the company and that it is seeking to
dominate this market with more staff and increasing the number of private small groups that it
serves. This will be primarily through tailor-made holidays via the sales office based in London.
Beautiful beaches, year-round green tropical parks, mighty rivers, unique fishing villages, special
culinary characteristics ... are always the force of gravity of Vietnam in the eyes of foreign
travelers. In recent years Vietnam has justifiably become one of Asia’s most fashionable
destinations for high-end British travelers.
Luxury tourism is not just about limos and five-star hotels, but creating memorable experiences
and Luxury Travel ensure that its guests feel part of the place rather than a casual observer, the
authentic experience being particularly popular with visitors from Britain.
Getting off-the-beaten track, relaxing on the beach at less visited places such as Con Dao and Phu
Quoc as well as combining Vietnam with visits to Cambodia, Laos or Myanmar are great favourites
with the UK market.
Vietnam is appealing to British visitors because of its safety, affordable prices, authenticity, lovely
weather and convenient direct flights with Vietnam Airlines. Luxury Travel Ltd.’s booking record
indicates that British travelers prefer cultural experiences and beach extensions, while many also
combine Vietnam and Cambodia or Myanmar into one trip.
“British holidaymakers like custom and private tours, not big groups. The boom in demand
suggests that holidaymakers are becoming increasingly canny and watching exchange rates as
well as seeking out keenly-priced packages before deciding on their destination. ” he said.
Further to the positive response from the market Pham Ha expects two digit growth in the next
year and he confirmed that his representative office in London and sales and marketing team will
expand its private stand and come back to WTM 2014 with a bigger exposure.
Vietnam Airlines provide directs flights Hanoi to London and Vietnam receives annually 100.000
