Strategy for cruise ship tourism under discussion

April 17, 2014 0 COMMENT

Strategy for cruise ship tourism under discussionThe development of Vietnam’s cruise ship tourism was discussed at international seminar held in Hue on April 16 by the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism, the Thua Thien Hue provincial People’s Committee, and the Asian Cruise Association (ACA).

Local and foreign delegates delivered 19 presentations on the development of the tourism industry, focusing on cruise ship services in particular.

Every year Vietnam welcomes approximately 200,000 visitors via cruise liners, which are increasing in popularity among international tourists.

However, Vietnam’s cruise ship services face a number of shortcomings, such as poor infrastructure, and a lack of promotion and advertisement.

The country currently has 39 seaports under zoning plans, but most of them are used for cargo transport.

Culture, Sports and Tourism Deputy Minister Ho Anh Tuan said the Vietnam Administration of Tourism is drawing up an action plan to build seaports for tourism development, adding that special attention will also be paid to developing tourism infrastructure and increasing the quality of cruise ship services.
