Vietnam”s hot spots revealed

0

Vietnam”s capital Hanoi is one of the country”s best destinations, according to a travel expert.

The historic city offers a range of street markets, beautiful colonial architecture and the famous Ho Chi Minh museum and mausoleum.

Elsewhere in the country there is even more to see, according to Caroline Phillips of [travel agency?] Explore.

Other destinations include Sapa in the North West, which is great for "meeting hill tribes and some fine trekking" and Hoi An, described as a "laid-back historic town with great food and tailors” shops".

Those after a memorable coastal spot should look no further than the Mekong Delta, which is "rightly famed for its floating markets, fruit orchards and delightful scenes of waterlife," Ms Phillips said.

According to recent figures by the World Travel and Tourism Council, Vietnam currently employs more than 1.5 million people in the travel and tourism industries, with a rise to 1.7 million expected by 2018.

The Vietnamese government has estimated that international arrivals to Vietnam so far this year were 3.3 million, increasing by 5.9 per cent compared to the same period last year.

Older generation ”becoming more adventurous” on holiday

0

Older people are becoming more adventurous in their choice of holiday, an industry insider has claimed.

Elder members of society are increasingly likely venture further outside Europe than before, including destinations such as Austrialia, New Zealand and South Africa.

Derek Moore, chairman of the Association of Independent Tour Operators (AITO), said: "The older generation are travelling more. Their kids have grown up and are much more self-sufficient these days so they are able to have a look at a bit more disposable income.

"I think with the older generation, when they were growing up a holiday was looked upon as being once a year, a treat."

He added that other destination such as the USA and south-east Asia "are always going to be popular spots" as well as countries in north Africa, for example.

Figures from the Office for National Statistics show that UK residents” visits abroad remained roughly the same at 17.8 million from 2007 to 2008, with their expenditure while abroad increasing by four per cent to £9.4 billion.
