Going to Indochina after the pandemic: What’s new?
Tourism in Indochina is recovering rapidly and we forget the negative side. Our 3 neighboring countries have taken advantage of the two years of rest to make many positive changes.

Present at the IFTM Top Resa 2022 Show (September 20-22), Mr. Toan NGUYEN – Director of DMC Mekong IMAGE Travel & Events will bring you the latest interesting news, those that will give you a hand to convince your customers to go to Indochina very soon.

How has Indochina changed?

  • Better roads
  • More responsible travel
  • Public means of transport are more available and ecological

Change in Laos

The TGV Luang Prabang – Vangvieng – Vientiane entered service with several daily departures and only a 1h30 journey! The extension of the China-Laos railway to Thailand is also under discussion.

Change in Vietnam
Community tourism is developing in a positive direction: benefits are broken down, and revenues are shared equitably. Travelers will have the opportunity to spend the night, eat, and experiment with different families in the villages instead of concentrating all the services on a single family.

A technology-based bike-sharing system was launched in Hue, Ho Chi Minh, Hanoi, and Vung Tau. This offers tourists a new, eco-friendly way to explore these major tourist cities.

Change in Cambodia
Several provincial roads were restored. The Phnom Penh – Sihanouk Ville highway is going to be put into service in October 2022. The Phnom Penh-Sihanouk Ville route is therefore considerably shortened (about 2h30-3h instead of the 5h drive).

More good news! The train in Cambodia resumes service for the Phnom Penh – Sihanoukville circuits (5h40 journey to Sihanouk Ville and 3h40 to Kampot) and Phnom Penh – Battambang (6h50 journey)
