According to recent figures for 2012 by FVW Medien Gruppe, Germany's leading travel industry media group with more than forty years of expertise in tourism, provides widely known and recognized publications, 39% of German tourists want sun and beach for their vacation, 31% want a relaxing holiday, 22% like nature trips as their preferred types of holidays, 22% travel with family, 16% like adventure, 14% like active holidays, 8% want fun and 8% like winter holidays and 4% like winter and warm for their vacation.
For many travel experts, Vietnam has all of these to offer to German tourists.
Vietnam in particular increasingly is being recognized as a destination for high-end global tourists, especially those coming from Western European countries with direct flights, such as France, the UK, and Germany. For German tourists, Vietnam is a magnet due to the history link and strategic partnership between the two countries, especially after the visit of Prime Minister Angela Merkel to Hanoi.
Vietnam now has world class hotels and resorts, beaches and cuisine, in addition to its natural beauty, rich history and traditional culture. The country receives 100,000 German tourists yearly, and the number of tourists increases year after year. Today’s German luxury travelers want to be entertained and stimulated, rather than simply pampered, and Vietnam offers a magical mix of tropical beaches, post-colonial charm, a string of world heritage sites, stunning inland scenery, a world-renowned cuisine and a home-grown flair for hospitality.
Upscale tours today must offer “off -the-beaten-track” experiences. Yet, in a credit crunch environment in Europe, high-end German tourists also expect efficiency, seamless travel, value for the money and a return on personal values. Many may even opt for staying in less luxurious hotels on short trips which offer a slice of local culture, a splash of adventure, and authentic experiences. The new slogan of Vietnam tourism –– “Timeless charm,” was created with an aim to attract long haul travelers from Germany and elsewhere, who wish to experience its defining characteristics: Thrills, nature, heritage, festival, pristine, enjoyment, scenery and essence.
“Our German team expects good traffic from German speaking countries such as Austria, Switzerland and Germany in 2012. Germany is a great market for us and we have beautiful products for German tastes and preferences and target the right clients with personalized products and services. We have increased both FITs and GITs bookings from our partners in 2011. Tourists choose Vietnam for their vacations for safety, affordable prices, authenticity and convenient direct flights. Our German teams have native Germans and Vietnamese, who are passionate and motivated. We will expand and expect to stay strong in Germany. With our marketing efforts and commitments, we will attract more German travelers who wish to experience the timeless charm of Vietnam in style and luxury and we are targeting two digit growth from this market for 2012," said Tran Mai Phuong, senior sales and marketing executive of German department of Luxury Travel Ltd.
