Vietnam's First Luxury Tour Operator Joins VNAT to Promote High End Tour Products in Melbourne and Sydney, Australia

Vietnam fast-growing high-end holiday destination for Aussies.

Hanoi, Vietnam, September 24, 2012 -- 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 300,000 Australian tourists yearly, and the number of tourists increases an average of 10% annually.

Australia is a very multicultural society and many Australians are familiar with Vietnamese food and culture. Australians travelling to Vietnam are looking for a more authentic experience and seek to have a deeper understanding of the country's culture, food, history and everyday life.

While Thailand is geared more toward mass market tourism, Vietnam is a destination that is attractive to a more selective class of travelers. Vietnam is becoming more and more recognized as a safe and favored destination for high end Australian tourists, thanks to direct and convenient flights and improvements in the tourism infrastructure.

The new slogan of Vietnam tourism, "Timeless charm", was created with an aim to attract travelers from Australia and elsewhere, who wish to experience the country's defining characteristics: Thrills, nature, heritage, festival, pristine, enjoyment, scenery and essence.

Australia is in a strong financial position, with unemployment easing and low interest rates, plus a strong dollar. As long as the dollar remains near its current relative value, all overseas destinations remain attractive to Australian travelers.

"Australia is a great market for us and we have beautiful products for Australian tastes and preferences, and we target the right clients with personalized products and services. We have increased the number private small groups we serve, primarily with tailor made holidays. These groups are generally either from 25 to 35 years old or 40+, the latter group having more disposable income. Australian tourists choose Vietnam for their vacations for safety, affordable prices, authenticity and convenient direct flights. With our marketing efforts and commitments, we will attract more Australian travelers who wish to experience Vietnam in style and luxury, and encourage them stay longer. Typical stays are 10 or 14 days, and in 4 and 5 star hotels. With our new representative office in Australia for the Australian and New Zealand markets, we are targeting double digit growth in this market for 2013." said Pham Ha, founder and CEO of Luxury Travel Ltd.

Australian market is among the top ten markets of Luxury Travel Ltd. The company serves 2% of total Australian tourist arrivals in Vietnam in 2011 and enjoys an increase of 20% in visitors annually. Luxury Travel Ltd's booking record indicates that Australian travelers prefer Ho Chi Minh City, Hanoi and Hoi An Ancient Town. They also want to visit Halong Bay, Cat Ba Island, the Mekong Delta and Sapa, while many also combine Vietnam and Cambodia in one trip.

"Except for AIME in Melbourne, there are no major travel trade shows in Australia, so we have joined VNAT and Vietnam Airlines in their road shows to promote our upscale products. Our representatives work hard to promote destinations, educate local travel agents, and generate public interest in Vietnam as a holiday destination. To help our travel agents and tour operators to sell our Vietnam luxury tours, I invite travel professionals to do a 10 day familiarization trip to Vietnam. Participants receive a certificate confirming their status as a 'Luxury Travel Specialist' after the trip," said Pham Ha. "This is the perfect way to learn more about Vietnam and some of the most dynamic new products available for 2012 - 2013. This tour blends innovative touring with hotel inspections to give agents insight into the destinations and become true luxury travel advisors."

Hanoi-based Luxury Travel Ltd. (http://www.luxurytravelvietnam.com) has announced joint efforts with the Vietnam National Administration of Tourism (VNAT) in order to promote luxury travel products in Sydney and Melbourne, Australia from 8 to 13 October, 2012. Luxury Travel Ltd. is a long established Asian specialist in luxury privately guided and fully bespoke holidays in Vietnam and the Indochinese Peninsula.

Four Easy Steps to Become a Foodie in a Flash

Convenient short cuts to minimize effort and maximize the culinary experience.

Parsippany, NJ (September 24, 2012) -- Aspiring food enthusiasts would love nothing more than to spend hours searching for the perfect ingredients to whip up masterpieces in their own kitchens. But the truth of it is that you don't have to commit much of your time to embrace the foodie lifestyle. From using handy apps, to selecting ready-made home-style ingredients, here are some convenient short cuts to minimize effort and maximize the culinary experience.

Go premium
The essence of being a foodie is seizing those chances to make the ordinary, extraordinary. Higher quality foods tend to be more flavorful and rich, and can easily add a wow factor to everyday meals. Go easy. Start by substituting a couple of premium-grade ingredients per recipe. Opt for heirloom tomatoes instead of standard red varieties; sea salt over your regular table salt; or preserves when the call is for jelly. According to Ronna Welsh, chef and founder of Brooklyn's Purple Kale Kitchenworks, starting with high-quality ingredients will make you a better cook and you'll be more satisfied with the results.

The supermarket is your friend
A farmer's market is a great source of fresh foods - and believe it or not, so is your local supermarket. More of your favorite mainstream brands are listening to shoppers' desire for products that use natural and choice ingredients. How do you find these products as you stroll the store aisles? Look for shorter ingredient labels. Take for example Farmer's Garden by Vlasic line of premium pickles. The classic American brand has gone back to basics with a selection of artisanal pickles in four flavors. The label on the back of the mason jar reveals a simple yet powerful recipe that includes fresh cucumbers, whole garlic cloves, carrot and peppers slices, and natural herbs and spices to deliver a top-quality pickle.

Make your farmer's market work for you
When you find yourself with a little more time available, such as on weekends, go local and explore the closest farmer's market. Your vendors are a great source of knowledge, so get to know them. They will gladly tell you what’s in season, help guide your purchase selection, and give you some insider's cooking and paring ideas. In fact, show up with a menu for a dish you have planned and they'll point you in all the right directions so that you can fill your shopping basket in mere minutes.

At your fingertips
Food bloggers, brands, columnists, you name it! These serious foodies have already done the homework for you and are willing to share their insight - for free! Just by typing in a few key words in a search engine bar, the limitless library of recipes and foodie guidance is literally at your fingertips. Scour the internet for recipes, seasonal dishes, pairing advice, cooking tips, entertaining ideas, and more. Technorati.com lists more than 17,000 food blogs, so be strategic. Start by visiting the top 10 on the list. When you find bloggers you can relate to, keep going back to their sites for more and feel free to ask them for help. Most of them came from other professions and found their passion along the way, like SassyRadish.com or WhiteOnRiceCouple.com, so they know what it's like to start out fresh. And since the smart phone and tablet are the latest "must-have" tools in the kitchens, don't forget to visit food sites such as Bon App├ętit and Serious Eats to find top food apps worth downloading.
