Eighty foreign businesses will attend the first international thematic fair on sea and island tourism in Vietnam, slated for early June in the central coastal province of Khanh Hoa.

The Nha Trang-Vietnam International Sea and Island Tourism Fair 2013, part of the 2013 Nha Trang Sea Festival, will have 160 booths introducing marine tourism products and services of local tour operators as well as travel agencies from Russia, Western Europe, Australia, New Zealand, Northeastern Asia, ASEAN and Middle East.

Besides promoting Vietnam’s sea and island tourism, the organising board also hopes to attract foreign investors in building tourism infrastructure.

Located 440km from Ho Chi Minh City, the city of Nha Trang has been long well-known for its attractive beaches on nearly 10km of white-sand coastline, where the clear water is warm throughout the year.
