Viet Nam has boosted the expansion of its tourism market to Bangladesh during a range of tourism promotion activities held at the host’s recent travel fair.

As a developing country in South Asia with more than 160 million people, a rapidly growing economy and a growing number of high-income people, Bangladesh is becoming an increasingly attractive market for Vietnamese travel agencies. They have examined the South Asian market and established partnerships with Bangladeshi partners to lure more Bangladeshi tourists to Viet Nam.

Among those efforts, ATE Vietnam Travel Company participated in the Bangladesh Travel and Tourism Fair 2018 in Dhaka, from April 19-21, and Viet Nam’s pavilion at the event attracted great attention from the local community.

Minister of Civil Aviation and Tourism of Bangladesh Shajahan Kamal expressed his interest in Viet Nam's tourism products and destinations, saying that both countries have advantages and opportunities to enhance their cooperation in the field of tourism, with a good tradition of friendship and many similarities in terms of history, culture and the climate.

The two countries are bestowed with beautiful landscapes and a long coastline. In particular, Bangladeshi people always hold good sentiment and great admiration towards the country and people of Viet Nam, he added.

Muhammad Rezaul Karim Reza, General Director of Bangladesh’s Sky Holidays Company, said that Vietnamese firms have great business opportunities in Bangladesh as Bangladeshi people have warm sentiments towards Viet Nam. More Bangladeshi people are travelling abroad and Viet Nam is one of their choices, he added.

During the three-day fair, thousands of visitors came to discover and exchange at the Vietnamese pavilion. Many visitors showed their interest in Viet Nam’s popular tourist destinations, such as Ha Long Bay, Ninh Binh, Sa Pa, Nha Trang and Mui Ne, offering great business opportunities for the Vietnamese travel companies.

However, the number of enterprises entering the Bangladeshi market remains few. According to Nguyen Hong Van, Director of the ATE Viet Nam, one of the reasons behind this fact is the high prices of tours due to the lack of a direct air route between the two countries, as well as limited information on the market.

Vietnamese Ambassador to Bangladesh Tran Van Khoa revealed that the two countries’ leaders agreed on the necessity of establishing a direct flight route and the related agencies from both sides are working on the issue. The diplomat suggested that Vietnamese travel companies pay greater attention to the Bangladeshi market, while fostering cooperation with Bangladeshi partners to design tours suitable to both Vietnamese and Bangladeshi people, thus increasing the number of visitors to each other’s country.

The international travel fair is the biggest of its kind in Bangladesh and is held annually to provide opportunities for travel and tourism companies to introduce their products and expand cooperative relations to promote tourism.
