To utilise the tourism potential of the localities, the five destinations shook hands to launch safe and attractive tourism products.

A caravan tour over six days will offer visitors new experiences, passing through famous destinations such as Quy Nhon beach, Ghenh Da Dia, Bien Ho tea, and Mang Den.

In addition, visitors can choose shorter tours with prices ranging from $86 to $304 flexibly.

According to Tran Van Quang, chairman of VND Travel, the organiser of the caravan tour, the destinations included in the regional programme are places with rich natural scenery, cultural identity, and diverse experiences.

Quang also added that after the last two years, most destinations and businesses are lacking resources, so creating synergies through the tour will promote the advantages of all and help the tourism industry recover quicker.

Nguyen Thi Kim Chung, deputy director of Binh Dinh Department of Tourism, shared that the province will focus on organising promotional activities to attract tourists. Binh Dinh will also organise events such as the Quy Nhon beach tourism programme, street festivals, a kite festival, a tuna festival, and the final round of the Miss Vietnam 2022 contest, as well as a number of related activities.

“Binh Dinh will step up activities to promote tourism in the Central Highlands, connecting marine tourism products, forest tourism, and cultural and historical tourism of each province," said Chung.

In addition, Binh Dinh also cooperates with airlines to attract international tourists, especially from South Korea and Japan.

Meanwhile, Dak Lak is also working with 15 localities, trying to create many new products based on local advantages such as coffee, elephants, and gongs.

According to Nguyen Thuy Phuong Hieu, deputy director of Dak Lak Department of Culture, Sports and Tourism, the proportion of international visitors to Dak Lak accounts for less than 10 per cent at the moment.

The cooperation with neighbouring provinces is this expected to attract not only more domestic tourists to Dak Lak but also raise the number of international visitors to the locality.
