Luxury travel Vietnam seeks to grow share from German market
Luxury Travel (www.luxurytravels.asia), a long established Asian specialist in luxury fully bespoke holidays in Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia, Myanmar and Thailand, will exhibit at ITB Berlin from 5-9 March (Hall 26.C/329). The aim is to promote high-end tourism products in the leisure luxury segment and to find buyers who want to sell unique experiences to discerning German travelers.
?Headquartered in Vietnam, with our rep office in Berlin, ITB Berlin is a great chance for us to establish our business relationship with travel professionals who look for reliable full travel service agencies and luxury tour operators,? said Pham Ha, founder and CEO of Luxury Travel Ltd.
?Luxury travel is no longer just about fine dining and five-star hotels,? says Ha. ?Luxury travellers of today expect authentic experiences in luxury travel as well as pampering, but they also want off-the-beaten-track adventures with impeccable service. Vietnam can offer German luxury travellers, who want to be entertained and stimulated, rather than simply pampered, a magical mix of tropical beaches, post-colonial charm, a string of World Heritage Sites, stunning inland scenery, world-renowned cuisine and a home-grown flair for hospitality. Vietnam has it all together.?
The Indochina area is increasingly appealing to German and European travellers, especially as Vietnam has seen the completion of many luxurious resorts with brand names such as Hyatt, Intercontinental and Six Senses. Wellness and spa resorts have increased dramatically in Southeast Asia, offering unrivalled services.
Luxury Travel is concentrating on developing those destinations that attract German-speaking travelers, of which there are around 100,000 travelling to Vietnam yearly, including combining sightseeing in Hanoi, Saigon, Halong Bay, Angkor Wat (Cambodia) with beach vacations in Hoi An, Nha Trang and Phu Quoc as well as encouraging them to stay longer.
Vietnam in particular is increasingly being recognized as a destination for high-end global tourists, especially those coming from Western European countries with direct flights, such as France, the UK, and Germany.
The tourism infrastructure of Vietnam has a fast-growing list of modern luxury and spa destinations, as well as iconic colonial and boutique properties, recently opened golf courses, helicopter flights from Hanoi to Halong Bay and the launch of luxury yacht and river cruise services ensuring stress-free journeys away from the busy roads.
The very first six star Emperor Cruises set to open at the end of this year. Such improvements account for the recent growth in popularity of the country and prove that an enigmatic and alluring country such as Vietnam has nowhere to go but up.
Ha continues, ?We have an excellent range of experiential travel products and provide support for travel professionals through our rep office in Germany. We are receiving more and more bookings from German-speaking countries, such as Austria and Switzerland, and we are also embracing social media for a comprehensive marketing mix. We are revamping our website in German, launching new niche products and monthly set departures, running fam trips for travel sellers and the press, and recruiting additional staff for the German Department as we are anticipating significant growth from the German-speaking market.?
