Vietnam’s leading travel agents, including Hanoi Toserco, Saigontourist and Fiditour, met with more than 150 Sri Lankan partners, at the Hilton Hotel in Colombo on June 8 to exploit growing interest in Vietnamese tourism.

Vice-chairman of the Travel Agents Association of Sri Lanka (AITA) U.Silva said Sri Lankan residents are showing increased interest in Vietnam as a holiday destination and called on local travel agents and media companies to exploit the potential market.

Vietnam’s ambassador to Sri Lanka, Ton Sinh Thanh, said the event aims to help local travel agents gain a better understanding of Vietnam’s people, land, history, culture, landscape and cuisine.

He said this is a good chance for Vietnam to promote tourism and to meet with partners to explore the potential tourism market in Sri Lanka.

At the meeting, the Vietnamese embassy and travel agents delivered showcased documents, pictures, and souvenirs promoting the country’s tourism and culture.
