HA NOI — Travel companies from Viet Nam and China held a conference yesterday in Ha Noi to discuss strategies to promote mutual co-operation in tourism and bring more tourists to each other’s market.

The event was organised by the Fujian Provincial Tourism Development Commission and the Ha Noi Department of Tourism.

Lin Yu, director of the Market Development Office (under the commission), said Viet Nam was an attractive destination for Chinese tourists and more and more travellers from Fujian wanted to visit Da Nang, Nha Trang and HCM City.

“Viet Nam and China share a border and friendship,” he said. “With similar culture and customs, it is easy to share experiences and increase co-operation.”

“Through the meeting, we want to boost mutual co-operation, bringing more tourists to Viet Nam and Fujian.”

Particularly, tourism agents will design new tours which are suitable for Vietnamese tourists.

Representatives from Chinese travel companies promoted some beauty spots and attractive tours in Fujian, including Wuyi Mountain, Zhaixia Grand Canyon and Maritime Silk Road.

Phan Huy Cuong from the Ha Noi Department of Tourism said currently there was no direct flight from Ha Noi to Fujian. Tourists from Ha Noi could reach Fujian by flying to Nanning and Guangzhou.

“In the near future, we will collaborate with airlines to set up direct flights between Ha Noi and Fujian to save time for travellers,” he said.

“New flights planned include ones from Da Nang and Nha Trang to Fuzhou and vice versa.”

Cuong revealed that Viet Nam received 670,000 tourists from Fujian last year. — VNS
