Vietnam travel agencies look to resume tours to Japan

2011-05-09 (GMT + 7)

The representatives of Vietnam travel agencies will join a survey trip to Japan this month in order to encourage travel companies to resume booking tours to the country.

Since March, Ho Chi Minh travel agencies have delayed all tours to Japan due to the duo-disasters of 100 year worst tsunami and the Fukushima power plant nuclear crisis.  Now that Japanese government and people have overcome the difficulties and recovered the normal daily life, the resuming of tours to Japan should return to normal.

According to Nguyen Van Thanh, sales manager of Ho Chi Minh City-based Samurai Tour Company, the survey trip will be held from May 30 to June 6, targeting tourism destinations in three big cities of Japan : Tokyo, Osaka and Nagoya.

The trip is hosted by Samurai Tour, which specializes in tours to Japan, in cooperation with All Nippon Airways and several Japanese partners.

Representatives from 12-15 companies of Vietnam tour will take part, like Festival and Cho Lon Tourist, Thanh said.

“Japanese partners said tourism services have recovered, so we want to bring local companies there to resume tours,” Thanh announced.

“We hope to be able to organize the first tour to Japan this August,” Thanh added, informing that some customers have registered for the August tour, but they still need more commitments to organize it.
