Promoting tourism connection from forest to sea

Nha Trang - Khanh Hoa Tourism Association has just organized a caravan program with the theme "The call of Nha Trang Beach", promoting Khanh Hoa tourism in the Central Highlands region. Through this event, tourism businesses desire to join in organizing tours connecting the forest and the sea.


Linking forest tourism and sea tourism


Starting from Nha Trang on June 21, the caravan delegation with more than 20 vehicles went through the provinces Phu Yen, Gia Lai, Dak Lak, Lam Dong and Khanh Hoa to create visual effects for the tourism of Khanh Hoa Province. Along the way, the delegation also discovered a number of new tourist destinations of the provinces such as Bien Ho tea hill, hundred-year-old pine forest (in Gia Lai) and contemplate the beautiful roads.


During the journey, the caravan of Nha Trang - Khanh Hoa Tourism Association has drawn attention of the people in the Central Highlands provinces, inviting people in the highlands to go to the sea. The caravan delegation also met local tourism authorities and tourism businesses in Gia Lai - Dak Lak - Lam Dong to connect and attract tourists from the Central Highlands provinces. In the Gala Dinner, the leadership of Nha Trang - Khanh Hoa Tourism Association introduced the tourism stimulus program of Khanh Hoa with many incentives under the motto "discount but not reduce quality" as well as introduced new products of Khanh Hoa tourism. At the same time, the delegation discussed with the authorities and tourism businesses of the provinces about the coordination to exploit inter-tourism between the provinces. General Director of Hunky Dory Vietnam Co., Ltd Huynh Duc Hoa said: “Khanh Hoa has strengths in sea and island tourism, while the Central Highlands provinces major in ecotourism and culture. Therefore, the provinces can exchange guests, and the two sides can combine to create products to attract international visitors. "

Many potentials for linking


Mr. Pham Duc Hai - Deputy Director of Tourism Promotion Information Center (under the Department of Culture, Sports and Tourism of Dak Lak ) said, “Khanh Hoa is a big tourist center of Vietnam. Sea tourism of Khanh Hoa is very impressive. Many people have chosen Khanh Hoa as a destination to trave because the distance is too close, and the roads are very good. With the difference in tourism products, the two provinces have large potentials to combining tourism. Previously, the number of tourists from Khanh Hoa to Dak Lak was not much, but recently, the number of visitors from Nha Trang has increased, especially Russian tourists. Currently, Dak Lak has no international flights, I hope in the future, Khanh Hoa will be a bridge to attract international tourists to the provinces in the region. "


Also at the Gala Dinner, many tourism businesses in Dak Lak were very interested in the tourism stimulus program of Khanh Hoa. Mr. Nguyen Duc Phuc - Director of Bazan Xanh Travel Service Trading Co., Ltd said that with the difference in tourism products, Nha Trang - Buon Ma Thuot is a very good travel route. In the future, when the National Way 26 is upgraded to become a highway, tourism activities between the two provinces will develop more strongly. In the long term, Khanh Hoa, Dak Lak and Lam Dong may become a tourism triangle to attract domestic and international tourists.


Similarly, tourism businesses in Lam Dong Province are also very interested in the promotions of Khanh Hoa tourism after the Covid-19 epidemic. Travel companies in Lam Dong are stepping up Da Lat - Nha Trang tours. “For a long time, the combination of tourism in Nha Trang and Da Lat is quite good. After the Covid-19 epidemic, the Nha Trang - Da Lat route was being favored by domestic tourists, especially by Hanoi visitors. I hope with the tourism stimulus program and the close connection, Nha Trang - Da Lat tours will be even better, creating quality tourism products for tourists”, said Director of Happy Day Travel Co., Ltd. Dinh Van Don shared.


According to Hoang Van Vinh - President of Nha Trang - Khanh Hoa Tourism Association, after the Covid-19 epidemic, tourism activities of Khanh Hoa Province in particular and provinces in the South Central Coast and Central Highlands in general have shown signs of recovering. However, to promote the development of tourism, provinces need to increase marketing, cooperation as well as new tours.
