Indian tourism explores central Viet Nam
Update: Jan 26, 2015
Representatives of Indian travel agents from Hyderabad, India will begin a series of Familiarisation (FAM) to Hoi An, My Son and Da Nang, the first of which will take place from January 30 to February 2.

It’s the first FAM trip from India’s tourism sector this year and will survey world heritage sites in the central region, golf courses and sport activities.

The trips, organized by Singapore’s SilkAir and Central Coast Viet Nam Destination Marketing Organization, aim to boost tourism connections between Hyderabad and Viet Nam’s central region.

SilkAir, the regional wing of Singapore Airlines, has opened direct flights from Da Nang to new destinations in Solo, Jogyakarta, Semarang, Makasar and Bandung Indonesia and daily flights to Singapore via Siem Reap.

The Singapore-based airline also has an air route that operates from Da Nang to Hyderabad via Singapore, hence their interest in pushing FAM trips this year.
