Cooperative deal with South Korean giant to improve and facilitate outbound Vietnamese tourism.
After a year of thoroughly studying the market together, HanaTour Vietnam, belonging to the Paradise Group (which runs cruises and hotels in Ha Long Bay) and South Korea’s HanaTour signed a cooperative agreement on December 28 fostering outbound Vietnamese tourism.
Given HanaTour’s long time expertise in the travel business and its solid connections with major airlines worldwide, HanaTour Vietnam is more than confident that the partnership will be a significant asset for the group’s development. “We are honored to build mutual cooperation with such a renowned actor in the tourism business as HanaTour,” said Mr. Nguyen Cao Son, Chairman of HanaTour Vietnam. “This collaboration is a real sign of trust and we are extremely enthusiastic in joining with a group that shares our passion for customer service excellence, making guests’ satisfaction our Number 1 priority.”
The cooperative deal will settle the first model of wholesale travel business management for Vietnam’s outbound tourism industry. “We believe this agreement is a milestone for Vietnamese travelers,” Mr. Son said. “They will have more opportunities to travel abroad, with a range of options, great services, and reasonable prices.”
Launching its first vessel in 2008, Paradise Cruises quickly imprinted its classy signature on Vietnam’s most famous World Heritage Site - Ha Long Bay. With four different cruise brands (Paradise Luxury, Paradise Privilege, Paradise Peak, and Paradise Explorer), it is renowned for constantly innovating to answer the wishes of customers for discovering Ha Long Bay in the most refined way.
Paradise Suites Hotel, meanwhile, offers high-end facilities and services in conformity with the elegance of the natural surroundings. It focuses on charm and experience and has been designed to provide guests with an atmosphere of beauty and delicacy at all times.
