Solidarity for Development
The Farm Trip to Ha Long is the most crowded one with the participation of more than 100 travel agents. This is the ever-biggest Farm Trip delegation, said Mr Thang, member of the trip’s origination board and director of the Hoang Viet Transport and Tourism Joint Stock Company (Hoangviet Travel JSC), adding that the organizer had concerned few participants to the trip because Ha Long is not a new destination and someone could have arrived in the city for hundreds times.
Do Xuan Nguyen, vice director of the Hong Gai Tourism Joint Stock Company (Honggai Tourist) said Dec 9 “I am on an assignment in the western region and feel concern as being informed that only 30 people have registered to attend the trip. However, the program has succeeded beyond all our expectations since the club’s members joined actively.
The atmosphere of Gala Dinner held in the night of December 11 at Ha Long-based Vietnam Trade Union (Cong Doan) hotel indicated the enthusiasm of the participants. The success is attributed to the members’ efforts in promoting and organizing the program, sharing together difficulties, and particularly spiritual and material support of sponsors such as the Trade Union hotel, the Viet Tien Yen Joint Stock Company, Tourism Joint Stock Companies of Khanh Sinh and Anh Duong. These sponsors have given conditions to the participants to survey prices, services, discover natural landscapes through the trip. The Gala Dinner was a meaningful event for the participants to relax themselves and share together wishes and cooperative opportunities. The event has created a close liaison among travel agents.
More New Cooperation Chances
During the two-day trip, the delegation visited the Bach Dang stake field in Quang Ninh province’s Yen Hung town, visited the 1,000-year-old ironwood tree and called at the Viet Tien Son joint stock company to exchange with workers here.
The delegation also surveyed some hotels in the Ha Long city such as Ha Long ASEAN hotel, Saigon Ha Long hotel, Ha Long Noveltel and night ships of Indochina sails, Huong Hai, Khanh Sinh fleets to study prices and services in order to build different tours in accordance with tourists. According to Nguyen Ngoc Dung, director of the Hand in Hand tourism company (Hand in Hand Travel and Tours). Overnight sleep on ships is a new tourism type, which is able to a large number of visitors because they can sleep on ship and discover the Ha Long bay in the night. The delegation also visited the Vong Vieng fishing village in the northwestern of Ha Long bay and handed over 50 plastic buoys for local fishermen. This is a poor fishing village with only 52 households and 230 residents, whose life leans mainly on fish catching and aquaculture. However, the usage of spongy tanks in aquaculture is polluting the environment and impacting natural scenery as well as water source of Ha Long bay – one among the world’s natural heritages. Vu Van Khuyen, a villager, said he was glad to receive the gift. I am very moved with the attention and sympathy of travel agents, he said. We will try to follow the province leaders and management board of Ha Long bay’s instructions to get a better life and protect the bay environment.
Tang Van Toan, director of the Vietravel’s branch in Lao Cai province said “I know the program late while attending a conference on tourism liaison in Hanoi”. However, I still decide to register to join the trip one day later because this is really a significant program, particularly I wants to help fishermen protect the Ha Long bay’s environment.
The Farm Trip Ha Long has created a hallmark to travel agents. The trip is not only a weekend activity but also an opportunity for enterprises to share experiences and increase the cooperation.
