Historic Vietnam comes calling for Min tourists

For those planning a trip to South-East Asian destination, Vietnam has positioned itself to draw a large chunk of Indian tourists.

An amazing South-East Asian destination that shares spiritual link with India and cultural similarities with Kolkata is none other than Vietnam. In this age of globalization, the country has emerged as a vacation in paradise with every corner of its tourism hotspots having a visual wonder. Aimed to educate travel groups and tourists of Kolkata about Vietnam as a prospective tourist destination, the Embassy of Socialist Republic of Vietnam in association with Vietnam Airlines, Jet Airways and Accor group of Hotels hosted a promotional event themed “Vietnam- An Amazing destination for Indian tourists” in Kolkata on January 27.

According to Ton Sinh Thanh, Ambassador of Socialist Republic of Vietnam, “We intend to woo Indian tourists to offer a boost to Vietnam tourism and we would be hosting tourism road shows across all Indian metros including New Delhi, Chennai, Bengaluru and Hyderabad in the current year onwards. Kolkata is the nearest metro for South-East Asian countries and the residents have fond, bygone memories of Vietnam War. We have plenty of attractions for Indian tourists who are travelling in a big way to South-East Asian destinations.”

Kolkata has strong historic connections with Vietnam and way back in 1958, Ho Chi Minh, President of Vietnam made a historic visit to New Delhi and Kolkata. Thanh said, “Vietnam is a destination of choice for shoppers, wedding planners, honeymoon couples and shooting locales for Bollywood films. Hanoi, Ho Chi Minh and Ha Long Bay with rocky islands are current favourites for Indian travellers. Indian tourists need to travel to Vietnam to soak in the spectacular views and experience the rapid developmental changes that have taken place over the years. We are well geared with all kinds of facilities to serve global tourists.”

"“It is quite cheaper for Bengal tourists to fly down to Vietnam and the hotels offer competitive rates.”"
