Vietnam’s tourism promoted in Kuwait

A seminar promoting Vietnam’s tourism in Kuwait was co-organised by the Embassy of Vietnam in Kuwait and the Western Asian country’s Chamber of Commerce and Industry on December 12.

The event was participated by nearly 30 travel agencies of Kuwait and representatives of Emirates Airlines and Qatar Airways, two major carriers in the Middle East which are operating flights to Vietnam.

At the seminar, Vietnamese tour operator Vietravel briefed the participants on the potential and growth of Vietnam’s tourism over the years, along with tourism products that meet demand of holidaymakers from Kuwait and other Gulf countries.

Representatives from Emirates Airlines and Qatar Airways also introduced air routes from Kuwait to Vietnam and price support for travel tours from Kuwait.

The event formed part of a series of activities of the Vietnamese Embassy to tap into the high quality tourist market of Kuwait which is worth 13 billion USD per year.

Following the seminar, the embassy will join hands with Vietravel and Kuwaiti leading travel company Souq Safar to arrange activities to introduce travel tours to Vietnam and the country’s cuisine and music to Kuwaiti people.
