Mr. Minnat Lalpuria – Founder and CEO of Vachan, a leading Indian event agency opined: “We are really impressed by Danang’s unique landscapes and diverse accommodation system. We will definitely consider moving events from familiar destinations such as Thailand and Indonesia to Danang.”
According to Mr. Nguyen Duc Quynh – Deputy Chairman for the steering committee of Danang Hotel Association, “In regards to the tourism market mix of Danang in particular and Vietnam in general, we strongly depend on only 1 or 2 markets. Expanding into India would be the inevitable solution in order to balance the market mix. With a large number of potential customers from India, I believe that we will be able to solve this thorny problem of Danang tourism industry”.
World Tourism Organization (UNWTO) has predicted that approximate 50 million Indian tourists travel overseas and Vietnam definitely is an unskippable country. Having recognised the huge potential from this market, Danang is promoting its image to Indian customers through major activities such as welcoming H.E President of India Ram Nath Kovind and First Lady during a state visit to the central city of Danang in November 2018, hosted by the Vietnamese government at the Furama International Convention Palace; organising culinary exchanges between 2 countries and hosting Indian FAM trips to get to know the city’s tourism products. It is also expected that direct flights between Danang and India will be executed in the upcoming time. Besides, the city will also develop and improve its facilities in order to attract more Indian visitors. Promoting Danang to the second most populous country in the world with 1.31 billion people will be the solution to balance the international tourism market mix for the most worth-living city in Vietnam.
