The difficulty of Vietnam tourism 2012
According to Pham Le Thao, Deputy Director of Tourism (VNAT), 2012 will be a tough year for the tourism industry due to inflation caused prices to increase. To improve the competitiveness of tourism, she called on the tourism industry, local airlines and must be linked, but the message is emitted at a time when the aviation industry “Summer threats” adjust domestic airfares before Tet.
Pull air travel down
With airfares no many passengers especially Ho Chi Minh City-Hanoi eight million increase, as proposed extensions by the Ministry of Finance through the ceiling, the pressure is poured into domestic tourism. Previously, after adjustment fare domestic flights in April / 2011, the tours in the country has decreased significantly. Ticket price of the tour in the country after the adjustment was more expensive than the price of a number of foreign tours. Specifically: when adjusting ticket prices increased by 15%, from Vietnam to Thailand tour only seven million, while the North East or North West has more than 11 million. In such conditions, of course, will choose the foreign tours instead of domestic tourism.
Tourism less competitive because domestic costs too high, when the more expensive tour of foreign capital is long-standing weakness did not remove it far worse when domestic air fares rose nearly 50 percent.
Aviation for that ticket to six tourist prices so there are many choices. In fact, according to the travel companies, the price of airline tickets is “blind jail”, not clear, hard to buy cheap tickets! Not to mention cheap to purchase, subject to several conditions binding “harsh” so the travel unit completely designed tour.
Before this situation, many of the travel forecasts tend to travel by road will be many options, but with tourism businesses, this is not a good business problems by remote tour will take time, reluctant tourists, not to mention traffic safety too many problems during the tour. Longer to tour near, less money will not benefit as expected. On the other hand, in the past year and plan for the year 2012 show that tourism, the tourism industry there is no stimulus program to encourage people to travel, in addition to the choice of 2012 as the Year of heritage tourism.
As artisanal, as dead
Many units are worried travel status “to reschedule up” on holiday, New Year’s hotel business services, attractions. This time, the demand for two – three Star sizable proportion of but prices “mixed” with an increase of 50-100% without the intervention of the authorities. In particular, after each events tourism hang a new price.
Specifically the bay has increased the ticket price soon after the time of Ha Long Bay in the list “can” become one of the new seven natural wonders of the world, was pressing for tourists and the travel. Representatives of the Management Board of Ha Long Bay offers three reasons why the price doubled: Ha Long Bay has a new list of seven wonders; to improve the quality of service; currency devaluation, inflation escalation . This approach runs counter to the trend of the world is supposed to open the image campaign promoting the event by attractive promotions. Specifically tourism Korea – Jeju Island before being voted into the world’s seven natural wonders, this water VNAT launched just a policy to reduce administrative procedures by free visa to Jeju, the promotional tour discounts to attract visitors.
Recently, information from a number of units in Hanoi said tour, places such as Sapa, Perfume Pagoda, Van Mieu Quoc Tu Giam … also announced that it will increase prices in early 2012. He Nguyen Minh Man – Head of Communications Co., tourism Vietravel said that this price increase seems to be beyond the control of the Department of Tourism.
