Hanoi, Vietnam, February 05, 2014 - Luxury Travel Vietnam founder Pham Ha said “we're really excited to be working with PiC Travel in the UK as their ambition and passion meets our own. We make this appointment as the UK is an important market for our company providing significant revenue and at a time when we continue winning numerous trade accounts and enjoy triple digit growth”.
According to Pham Ha, “Vietnam is a destination that is the envy of Asia” pointing out “that a recent survey of 1,200 travel experts taken during the World Travel Market revealed that most travel experts believe Vietnam is shaping up to be one of the most attractive destinations in Asia”. Pham continued “That's understandable with Vietnam boasting world class hotels and resorts, beaches and cuisine in addition to its natural beauty, rich history and traditional culture.”
Jason Squires of PiC Travel said “We're delighted to be working with Luxury Travel especially as they are regarded as one of the premier tour companies in the Indochina area”.
Jason went on to say “Current market trends in the UK continue to show increased interest in luxury tours in Asia. Many travel experts increasingly recognize the great opportunities in selling Vietnam, Myanmar and the Indochina area”.
The Indochina area is increasingly appealing to British and European travelers especially as in the past few years Vietnam has seen the completion of many luxurious resorts with names such as Hyatt Regency Danang Resort and Spa, Intercontinental Peninsula Danang Sun Spa and Six Senses Con Dao, Amano’i entering the market and offering more choices for travelers. Vietnam is now one of the top ten destinations in Asia with the luxury sector being the fastest growing segment.
Luxury Travel will focus on developing those destinations that attract UK travelers including combining sightseeing in Hanoi, Saigon, Halong Bay, Angkor Wat (Cambodia) with beach vacations in Hoi An, Nha Trang, Phu Quoc. Luxury Travel marketing efforts and commitments will now attract even more British travelers who wish to experience Vietnam in style and luxury, and we will be trying to encourage them to stay longer” with current typical stays of 10-14 days in 5-star hotels.
Pham also announced that in 2014, Luxury Travel has designed a FAM trip for agents and professional travelers. This FAM trip is a great opportunity to experience Vietnam and for travel professionals to enrich their knowledge of this intriguing land and friendly people. Agents will return home from the FAM trip fully equipped as Vietnamese travel specialists, allowing them to generate public awareness of Vietnam as a high-end holiday destination.
