Hanoi, Vietnam (October 8, 2013) — The leading halal specialist has revamped its website (http://www.vietnamhalalholidays.com), published guide book and attends various tourism shows to promote Vietnam tourism for high-end muslim holidaymakers.

According to Luxury Travel Ltd (http://www.luxurytravels.asia), about 23% of the world population is Muslim. Of these, around 62% live in Asia – Pacific, 20% in the Middle East- North Africa, 15% in Sub Saharan Africa, around 3% in Europe and 0.3% in the Americas.

“Halal tourism is leisure and travel that complies with Islamic law, such as the provision of cuisine and beverages that contain no pork or alcohol, and the separation of men and women at tourist events and sites.” says CEO and Founder Pham Ha of Luxury Travel Ltd.

“Halal tourism is not complicated. Basically, we just need to include what Muslim tourists need when traveling, such as hotels that have a kiblat sign [direction to Mecca], a prayer mat, halal food, a toilet with washing facilities and a tour that includes daily prayers.”

Luxury Travel has been recognized the first luxury halal tour and holiday operator focusing on Muslim tourists from Brunei, Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia, India, Turkey, the North Africa and the Middle East visiting Vietnam in 2014.

“We have reserved special tours for Muslim travellers, halal food restaurants and mosque locations. We expect to host around 1000 – 1200 Muslim travellers in 2014, an increase of 30% growth annually.” reveals Pham Ha.

Pham Ha says: “The Muslim population in Indonesia shows immense potential. Demand from this segment is picking up and is expected to increase, thanks to direct flights between South-east Asian countries, including the latest flight to (Ho Chi Minh City) from Jakarta four times per week. “Also, no visa is needed for most citizens travelling between ASEAN countries,” he adds.

The company also targets the most sophisticated travelers from the Middle East with niche tourism products with new airline connections to Vietnam and Cambdodia. Etihad Airway announced a direct route connecting Ho Chi Minh City and Abu Dhabi (UAE) to open in 1 October 2013. Also, arrivals from the Middle East will grow, supported by Qatar Airways’ new daily flight connection from Doha to Phnom Penh via Ho Chi Minh City.

“In order to capitalize on these potential markets, we have revamped our halal website, created special experiences for Muslim travelers, worked with reputable halal food restaurants, searched out mosque locations and trained our staff in order to better serve Muslim travelers.

We attend various travel trade shows in individual markets And with nearly 1.6 billion Muslims in the world, the potential market is huge.” added Ha.

To Celebrate Its 9th Anniversary, Luxury Travel Ltd. Reveals the Successful Story of Vietnam’s First Luxury Travel and Tour Operator

“Besides having a passion for travelling, reading, walking and golf, I love to seek luxury,” admits Pham Ha, the CEO of Luxury Travel Ltd.

Hanoi, Vietnam, May 13, 2013 — “Besides having a passion for travelling, reading, walking and golf, I love to seek luxury,” admits Pham Ha, the CEO of Luxury Travel Ltd http://www.luxurytravelvietnam.com.

He’s not alone. As Vietnam’s economy strengthens, the tourism industry is inevitably expanding its own horizons. Once considered as more of a backpacker destination, now with growing high-end options, Vietnam is attracting a different kind of tourist.

Options might still be considered limited and infrastructure below international standards. But that’s where Ha’s company steps in. On a mission to promote the luxurious side of Vietnam, Ha hopes to coax more high-end travelers and businesspeople to the country.

But that doesn’t mean just booking five-star hotels and fancy dinners for a whirlwind tour along Vietnam’s coastline. He admits he’s haunted by one former clients’ indifferent dismissal of Vietnam as “beautiful but boring,” so his company goes the whole nine yards to ensure customers have the holiday of a lifetime.

The philosophy of Luxury Travel (http://www.luxurytravelvietnam.com) is to find top quality services, unique experiences and sophistication and create perfect packages for the most discerning of travellers. Ha knows that to have a dream vacation the traveller must experience pleasure, comfort and total satisfaction.

Whether the client wants to hide in the tropical jungle, kick back on the beach, discover Vietnam’s culinary delights, trek to a hill tribe village or relax in style in a luxury vacation villa, Luxury Travel Vietnam will come up with the goods – minimizing on travel time and maximizing experiences.

“Simply envision any vacation experience you want, name it, and we will deliver it in style – that’s Luxury Travel,” he stresses.

As a child, Ha had always dreamed of travelling around the world. After graduating from Hanoi Teachers’ Training College and National Economics University, Ha worked as a teacher but soon wanderlust set in and he quit teaching to take a job as a tour guide, tour operator, PR, sales and marketing man.

After 12 years in the industry, Pham Ha found his own business in 2004 providing luxury tours in Vietnam. Besides providing sightseeing tours, Luxury Travel also arranges accommodation, airport transfers, regional flights, train tickets, visas, superior guides and other logistics in advance. The company guides speak Vietnamese, Chinese, English, French and German and are selected for their open-mindedness, motivation and enthusiasm.

“It may be my fate. Firstly, I do this because I want to satisfy my passion to discover,” says Ha. “But it’s also my pleasure to introduce the beauty of Vietnam to foreigners.” To turn a private passion into a tourist business, Pham Ha had to be patient.

“In the beginning, I had 12 years of work experience but not so much money!” says Ha with a smile.

Despite his meager savings of $1,000, Ha was determined to pursue his dream. Now four years later, his company employs 60 luxury travel advisors and top guides, owns a fleet of Mercedes and has offices in Hanoi, Ho Chi Minh City and Danang and management offices in South East Asia.

Each of the guides must be an expert traveler and know how to make the client’s travel experience truly special, truly hassle-free, and truly enriching.

“I love my country and its destinations, and I do my best to make sure that my customers feel the same way,” says Ha.

Ha aims to introduce a contemporary Vietnam – a country that is young, dynamic and exotic. Beyond the cyclos, pho and ao dai, Vietnam is gaining a reputation for its breathtaking beaches, luxurious resorts and golf courses.

“It’s not difficult to find luxury hotels. Now is the time for upscale travelers and MICE to come to Vietnam,” says Ha.

At Ha’s office, there is a visitors’ book which is filled with entries by satisfied customers.

“We recently returned from our wonderful 15 day journey to Vietnam and Cambodia arranged by Luxury Travel Vietnam,” writes Pamela Solvang. “We can’t thank you enough for providing such an excellent travel experience for us from start to finish. The three of us on this trip have all traveled extensively, all around the world. We have used the best luxury travel companies in the US and elsewhere and can attest that Luxury Travel provides excellent services!”

Attention to detail sums up Ha’s approach very well. He knows high-end travelers don’t settle for below standard services, even if Vietnam is still a developing country, tours must run smoothly.

As Vietnam continues to assert its presence on the world stage, the number of visitors is surging and Ha is confidently waiting, ready to accommodate those who are looking to bask in the lap of luxury.

Luxury Travel Vietnam Introduced its Tours in Latin America

Luxury Travel Ltd. (www.luxurytravelvietnam.com) Begins Joint Effort with Uruguay Tour Operator To Promote High End Vietnam Tourism Products In Brazil.

Hanoi, Vietnam, April 8, 2013 — Vietnam is a new holiday destination for Latin America holidaymakers. Now, Asia’s most innovative luxury travel and tour company brings Vietnam high-end tourism products closer to travel agents in Sao Paulo, Brazil.
