According to a representative from HTS International, the travel firm is excited to announce its collaboration with Bamboo Airways in organizing a familiarization trip for 15 esteemed travel firms from Australia. The purpose of this trip is to introduce and showcase the enchanting tourist attractions of the province.

Several firms from Sydney and Melbourne, Australia, are set to participate in a four-day tour of Khanh Hoa Province’s tourism services and products. The tour will take place from Saturday to Tuesday next week.

During their trip, they will be staying at high-end resorts located along Bai Dai Beach in Cam Lam District. Additionally, they will be visiting Kong Forest Park and have scheduled meetings with travel companies based in Khanh Hoa next Monday to explore potential collaboration opportunities.

Nguyen Duc Tan, the General Director of Anex Vietnam Travel and Trading Company, announced the launch of the ‘Anex Central Asia – Tropical Sense Workshop in Vietnam 2023’ program. The objective of this initiative is to enhance tourism promotion and attract visitors from Kazakhstan and other former Soviet Union states.

The company is pleased to announce that it will be hosting a delegation of 200 tourism sales agents from various nations in the province. The event will take place from September 9th to September 17th.

The group will carry out on-site surveys at local travel businesses and visit popular tourist attractions in Nha Trang City. Additionally, a tourism promotion program is scheduled, which involves the participation of local hotels, aiming to attract visitors from former Soviet Union states to the province during the winter season.

Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan are significant tourist markets for Khanh Hoa, as stated by Tan.

According to him, Cam Ranh International Airport, situated in the province, accommodates four weekly flights from Kazakhstan and two from Uzbekistan.

“The trip and program aim to provide international tourism sales agents with a comprehensive understanding of Khanh Hoa Province’s tourism products and its unique selling points,” stated Bui Quoc Dai, Deputy CEO of Anex Vietnam Travel and Trading Company.

The event serves as a significant precursor to the anticipated tourism boom in Khanh Hoa Province during the upcoming winter holiday season.

According to Christina Nguyen, the director of Zazen Travel Company, Vietnam is currently entering its off-peak travel season for domestic tourism. However, there is expected to be a significant increase in inbound tourism as holidaymakers from North Asia and Europe plan their winter vacations. This trend is predicted to continue until the end of 2023.

“I am aware of the considerable tourism potential that Khanh Hoa Province possesses, with its popular tours to mango gardens and countryside areas that attract international visitors,” she remarked.

According to her, these destinations have not yet gained traction with international tourists. She mentioned that familiarization trips will play a crucial role in promoting tourism links not only between the province and other countries, but also across Vietnam as a whole.

In August, several familiarization trip groups from Indonesia and India visited Khanh Hoa Province.
