Travel operators seek partners at Thailand Travel Mart
Update: Jun 10, 2016
The Viet Nam National Administration of Tourism (VNAT) and eight travel operators are attending the ongoing Thailand Travel Mart Plus (TTM +2016) June 8-10 in Chiang Mai.

TTM + is the largest tourism fair in the Greater Mekong Subregion (GMS) hosted by the Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT).

The Vietnamese pavilion captured the major attention from visitors, media agencies and partners keen to seek business opportunities. It provides visitors with information about National Tourism Year 2016 Phu Quoc - Mekong Delta themed “Exploring Southern Land”.

Vu Nam, deputy head of VNAT Tourism Market Department, said Vietnamese travel agents’ participation in the event is designed to attract tourists from the lucrative Thai market and exchange with their highly reputable partners from Thailand.

On the occasion, Vietravel Company inaugurated the Vinh-Bangkok route, thus facilitating the opening of more tours to Thailand via direct flights from Viet Nam’s north-central region to Bangkok.

Last year, as many as 760,000 Vietnamese people visited Thailand, a year-on-year increase of 24%. During the first four months of this year, Thailand welcomed around 200,000 Vietnamese travelers, up 0.24% from the corresponding period a year earlier.
