At the same time, the tourism industry needs a change in the way of promotion and communication to adapt to tourism trends in the new situation.
Khanh Hoa tourism during the Lunar New Year Festival was busy. During the 9 days of Tet holiday (from January 29 to February 6), the province welcomed nearly 100,000 guests, with room occupancy reaching more than 72% and total tourism revenue reaching about 524.3 billion VND. However, tourism experts say that the tourism industry needs to make more efforts to keep the recovery momentum. Nguyen Quy Phuong - Director of the Travel Department, General Department of Tourism under the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism said that, in the context of the international tourism market just opening, Vietnam's tourism in general and Khanh Hoa tourism in particular still mainly relies on the domestic tourist market. Therefore, the tourism industry needs to strengthen links and cooperation to stimulate domestic market demand. Khanh Hoa needs to link and cooperate with neighboring localities, especially the tourism triangle Khanh Hoa - Lam Dong - Ninh Thuan.
Pham Minh Nhut - Standing Vice Chairman of Nha Trang - Khanh Hoa Tourism Association also assessed that the provinces of Khanh Hoa, Lam Dong and Ninh Thuan concentrate many beautiful monuments and landscapes of the country, so they are attractive to domestic and international tourists. Visitors can enjoy the sea in Khanh Hoa, then go to Lam Dong to enjoy the beauty of the land of flowers, of high-tech agricultural farms, etc. and then move down to Ninh Thuan to experience the sunshine and wind of Phan Rang, sand dunes, Vinh Hy bay, Mui Dinh... Besides, travel businesses can also organize thematic tours such as Cham cultural heritages in Khanh Hoa - Ninh Thuan or tours to architectural works associated with the life of former emperor Bao Dai in Da Lat - Nha Trang.
Previously, local travel businesses also had package tours with preferential prices to bring guests to stay in Nha Trang - Ninh Thuan, Nha Trang - Da Lat, Nha Trang - Da Lat - Ninh Thuan. However, according to experts, tourism between provinces has not had a deep connection. Therefore, the three provinces need to closely link in the construction and connection of tours, tourist routes and tourism promotion; and build more quality destinations.
Nguyen Thi Le Thanh - Director of the Department of Tourism said: "Over the years, the tourism industry of Khanh Hoa and Lam Dong, Ninh Thuan has had a fairly close cooperation. In the coming time, Khanh Hoa Province Department of Tourism and the Nha Trang - Khanh Hoa Tourism Association will discuss with their counterparts in Lam Dong and Ninh Thuan to have a plan to organize larger programs, aiming to the general development of tourism triangle Khanh Hoa - Lam Dong - Ninh Thuan.
