Binh Thuan’s Tourism Association worked with an international delegation of travel agencies and reporters on September 13 in a bid to promote the central province’s popular services and products.

Pristine beaches in Mui Ne and traditional festivals, such as Nghinh Ong and Kate, have long drawn visitors.

In the past eight months, Binh Thuan welcomed 2.6 million tourists including 294,000 foreign arrivals, a 10 percent annual climb.

The province is currently home to 289 facilities that offer almost 11,000 rooms.

Foreign guests commented on local improvements in transportation, proposing the construction of new routes to shorten travelling time to and from Ho Chi Minh City as well as diversifying modes of transport.

They also urged the expeditious opening of the Phan Thiet airport.

The delegation, grouping travel agencies and reporters from Russia, the UK, India and the Republic of Korea, among others, toured famous destinations and experienced tourism services in Binh Thuan from September 12-14.-VNA
