The land and people of Vietnam have been introduced to foreign travel agencies at a seminar themed “Vietnam-favourite destination” in Belgium on January 9.

The event, jointly held by the Vietnamese Embassy in Belgium and the Travel Magazine, drew the participation of 20 leading tour operators worldwide such as Thomascook, Wagon Lit, Croisiere and Exclusive.

Participants agreed that Vietnam has become a popular destination to European holiday-makers thanks to its beautiful landscape and local people’s friendliness and hospitality, and explored ways to entice visitors to come back to the country.

They discussed the development of luxurious resorts in Vietnam, studying the pilot project of Amanoi Resort in the central province of Ninh Thuan which is invested by Belgian businesses.

Petor Van Kerckhove, Chairman of the VK Group-the project’s investor, said Vietnam, especially Ninh Thuan, which is blessed with untouched white sand beaches, holds potential for developing luxurious tourism models.

Together with the Amanoi Ninh Thuan resort, which was inaugurated in last October, the Belgian group has a total of 32 luxurious resorts in 16 countries across the world.-VNA
