Road show promotes Vietnam’s tourism in Indonesia
The programme is part of activities the Vietnam National Administration of Tourism (VNAT) has organised to promote Vietnam’s image, culture and tourism products as well as push up travel and tourism cooperation between the two countries.
The administration has cooperated with localities and businesses to implement tourism promotion activities to Indonesian tourists in an effort to welcome 100,000 Indonesian arrivals to Vietnam next year, said Deputy Head of the administration Ha Van Sieu at the event.
He added that a direct route between Jakarta and Hanoi will be opened while increasing flights on Jakarta – Ho Chi Minh route.
Vietnam and international airlines continue cooperating to launch new routes to meet the travel demand of tourists in the upcoming years.
Meanwhile, numerous Vietnam’s international airports have been constructed or upgraded.
Besides, investments have been poured into roads, waterways and railways with the completion and operation of some expressways and trans-Asian roads connecting ASEAN countries and China.
Tedjo Iskandar from the Indonesian travel firm Destination Networking said Vietnam should have more tour guides who can speak Indonesian language.
He also noted that flights should be connected directly to offer convenience to tourists besides operating the Jakarta-Hanoi direct route.
Vietnam has welcomed over 63,000 Indonesian tourists in the first 11 months of this year, according to data of the General Statistics Office of Vietnam.
Similar programmes are taking place in Malaysia and Singapore from December 5-9.-
