Update: Jul 20, 2012
Khanh Hoa Province will organize the Vietnam International Sea Tourism Fair from June 6 to 8, 2013 at the Diamond Bay Resort in Nha Trang City at a total cost of VND15 billion.

Nguyen Van Thanh, director of the Khanh Hoa Tourism Promotion Center, said the province had submitted a plan for this event to the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism. The fair is expected to feature 250 booths of local and foreign firms and other activities like an investment promotion conference, a familiarization trip for foreign tour operators and the press, and a sea tourism symposium.

The cost of the fair will be sourced from the State budget and corporate sponsorships.

According to Thanh, after many promotion events such as international yacht race and sailing festival, the upcoming fair will further promote sea tourism, a strength of Khanh Hoa.

"The sea is what makes Khanh Hoa attractive to tourists. Along with enterprises' investment in facilities, we organize many promotion events," said Thanh.

Khanh Hoa has some 4,500 hotel rooms from three- to five-star grades, mostly in the coastal areas and often full in summer and year-end vacations.
