The activity is part of tourism cooperation among the three localities, targeting the northeastern region of Thailand. 

The event drew Vietnamese Consul General in Khon Kaen Huynh Ngoc Son, representatives of the Tourism Departments of Nghe An, Ha Tinh and Quang Binh, Udon Thani tourism management agencies and about 70 Thai and Vietnamese travel firms.

Outstanding natural landscape and heritage of the three provinces such as the UNESCO-recognised natural heritage of Phong Nha-Ke Bang National Park of Quang Binh and intangible cultural heritage of Vi Giam folk singing in Nghe An and Ha Tinh were highlighted.

Tourists of Thailand and Viet Nam can reach each other’s country by road, air or cruise ships, making it tourism cooperation between the two countries easier.

Representatives of tourism management agencies of Thailand’s northeastern localities said that with diverse natural landscapes and efforts to promote tourism, central provinces of Viet Nam have become top destinations for Thai tourists.

Meanwhile, the northeastern region of Thailand has welcomed thousands of Vietnamese visitors every year, especially in President Ho Chi Minh’s memorial sites and in Nakhon Phanom and Udon Thani.

At the event, Vietnamese and Thai travel firms also introduced to each other their tourism products and discussed measures to develop tours and tourism routes.
