Vietnam`s first luxury tour operator will exhibit at WTM Africa( HANOI, Vietnam – Luxury Travel (, a long-established Asian specialist in luxury fully bespoke holidays in Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia, Myanmar, and Thailand, will exhibit at WTM Africa from May 2-3 in Cape Town, South Africa (Stand L11).

The aim is to promote high-end tourism products in the leisure luxury segment and to find buyers who want to sell unique luxury travel experiences to discerning African travelers and to help company representatives acquire knowledge about the demands, preferences, and needs of the market.

WTM Africa ( is the leading B2B exhibition for the inbound and outbound African travel industry, and is particularly tailored to the African market.

“The direct THAI flight connecting Johannesburg with Hanoi through Bangkok, or Malaysia Airlines, Singapore Airlines and frequent services by Gulf-based airlines (Qatar and Emirates), puts Luxury Travel`s offers of authentic encounters within easy reach of South Africans,” says Pham Ha, CEO of Vietnamese luxury tour operator Luxury Travel Ltd.

“We already have good GIT and FIT traffic from South Africa to Indochina. For years we have had a very positive experience at WTM London, so it was a very easy decision for us to exhibit at WTM Africa`s inaugural event this year in Cape Town, giving us a great opportunity to connect with this growing market. We are among the first to move into South Africa.”

The Indochina peninsula (Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia, Thailand, and Myanmar), has become increasingly appealing to global travelers from long-haul destination such as South Africa. Vietnam has a wide scope of activities and landscapes that appeal to a mix of travelers, from tropical beaches, post-colonial towns, a string of World Heritage Sites, stunning inland scenery, world-renowned cuisine and a home-grown flair for hospitality. Vietnam has it all.

“We see our clients from South Africa combining multi-countries in one trip and an increase in the number of group tours, private leisure FITS and special interest tailor-made tours. Most of them prefer luxury tours; they expect authentic experiences in luxury travel as well as pampering, but they also want off-the-beaten-track adventures with impeccable service,” says Pham Ha.

“In Vietnam we have seen the completion of many luxurious hotels and resorts with names such as Marriott, Hyatt, Intercontinental, Six Senses and Amano`i. Vietnam in particular is increasingly being recognized as a destination for high-end global travelers.”

Its tourism infrastructure features a growing list of modern luxury and spa destinations, iconic colonial and boutique properties, recently opened golf courses, seaplane and helicopter flights from Hanoi to Halong Bay, and the launch of luxury yacht and river cruise services that provide a stress-free journey away from busy roads.

Halong Bay is about to enter the ultra-luxury market with the very first six-star boutique all-inclusive Emperor Cruises set to sail at the end of this year. Such improvements account for the recent growth in popularity of the country and prove that an enigmatic and alluring country such as Vietnam has nowhere to go but up.

“With new luxury hotels, ultra luxury cruises and world-class golf courses having recently opened or set to open soon, and the introduction of upmarket train journeys, exclusive cruises and upscale private tours spanning the length of the country, Vietnam is fast emerging as an exciting destination for high-end travelers from South Africa,” Pham Ha adds.
