Saigontourist seeks to promote tourism cooperation with Hungary
Saigontourist Holding Company, Vietnam’s leading tour operator, on October 25th partook in a conference on promoting tourism development cooperation between Vietnam and Hungary in the Hungarian capital of Budapest.
Both sides exchanged information on the tourism markets of the two countries with an aim to bolster the tourist arrival growth and boost tourist cooperation between the two countries.
Speaking at the conference, Vietnamese ambassador to Hungary Nguyen Thanh Tuan appreciated Saigontourist’s efforts to implement the tourism development cooperation program between Vietnam and Hungary and proposed the central European country to create favorable conditions in visa issuance for Vietnamese tourists to Hungary as committed by the governments of the two countries.
A representative of the Hungarian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade also highly praised the potential of Saigontourist as well as the attraction of Vietnam’s tourism towards Hungarian visitors, adding that, the Hungarian government will simplify visa procedures for Vietnamese tourists.
Vo Anh Tai, deputy general director of Saigontourist, said the working trip of his corporation’s delegation to Hungary is aimed at strengthening the tourism development cooperation between Vietnam’s leading tourism enterprise with top travel agencies of Hungary in an effort to attract more Hungarian tourists to Vietnam and vice versa.
Saigontourist is rolling up its sleeves to put on a new tourism product with a special ten-day tour taking in Hungary, Slovakia, Czech Republic and Austria costing around VND50 million per guest.
Next year, the domestic tour operator is expected to launch a wide range of tours taking Vietnamese tourists to Hungary and central European countries. Simultaneously, Saigontourist will promote cooperation with Hungary’s leading travel agencies to lure Hungarian travelers to HCMC and Vietnam as well.
