Hanoi, Vietnam, July 19, 2012 -- The Travel Experts of Virtuoso in the US just completed a trend survey of its member agencies, each of whom specializes in catering to the needs of luxury travelers, which came to the conclusion that Vietnam and Cambodia are the hot destinations in Southeast Asia.
"With new luxury hotels and world class golf courses having recently opened or set to open soon, and the introduction of luxury train journeys, exclusive cruises and upscale private tours spanning the length of the country, Vietnam is fast emerging as an exciting destination for the high-end traveler," says Luxury Travel Ltd's Founding CEO, Pham Ha.
Today’s luxury travelers want to be entertained and stimulated, rather than simply pampered, and Vietnam offers a magical mix of tropical beaches, post-colonial charm, a string of world heritage sites, stunning inland scenery, a world-renowned cuisine and a home-grown flair for hospitality.
“Nowadays, luxury travel is about experiences, doesn't need to be the preserve of the super-rich - indeed, it is a little-known fact that almost anybody can afford to travel in style, elegance and comfort without breaking the bank or even spending much more than travelling ordinarily. The world of luxury travel is actually a very accessible onem,” reveals Pham Ha.
Upscale tours today also offer “off the beaten track” experiences. In a credit crunch environment high end tourists also expect efficiency, seamless travel, value for money and a return on personal values. Many will opt for short trips for their families which offer a slice of local culture, a splash of adventure, and authentic experiences.
