The city of Ho Chi Minh, also known as the city of Saigon, in the country of Vietnam is slowly becoming a vastly popular choice for a vacation destination not just from Asian neighbourhoods but from nations in the other side of the Globe. This is due to the good combination of both well-preserved French colonial structures plus the war relics from the bloody Vietnam War. Aside from the historical places and relics, Ho Chi Minh City has a number of skyscrapers, sports clubs to watch various sporting events, shopping mall where you can shop ‘til you drop and other places. In addition to this, there are Buddhist temples and Hindu temples too. Since the city is crowded with millions of tourists on a yearly rate, there’s no surprise in the rise of hotels of all sorts around the city. In fact,you can even find a 5-star boutique hotel in Ho Chi Minh City you need a remarkably comfortable place to stay.
Recently, tourism officials of Ho Chi Minh City have met with several service providers from the tourism industry to discuss viable ways in aide of welcoming a whooping number of tourist arrivals for 2017, amounting to 7 million tourist arrivals. For the duration of 2016, the city had in fact, reached 5.2 million tourists who arrived in the city and there has been a 15% increase in the arrivals of tourists for the first three months of 2017- amounting to 1.5 million recorded arrivals. The meeting’s goals, aside from adjusting the city’s strategies in luring more tourist arrivals and return trips, is to make sure that related service providers, including accommodation such as from a 5-star boutique hotel in Ho Chi Minh Citywill be able to meet the needs of the arriving tourists come the peak seasons. A suggestion has been made one of the city’s officials to consult foreign experts for them to know what exactly both European and Asian vacations are expecting from the city, and from there on, differentiate what the city already has in place and these expectations to balance things out.
