Culinary Tour Vietnam- Innovative Way Towards Destination Marketing
In today’s date, culinary experience has become an integral part of tourism for any destination as food is often considered as a basic identity of a country, its culture, and traditions. Dining is not the ultimate focus for today’s luxury travelers; they are more focused towards an immersive experience that starts from the folklores and information about the origin of each local preparation and its journey through ages. So most of the leading destination management companies use food tourism as one of the innovative ways to welcome their guests. For example, Australia Tourism Department has their official Instagram page to highlight their must-see destinations along with culinary stops to provide detailed information to the travelers and let them customize their trips accordingly.
According to a survey by the World Food Travel Association, 25% of the total tourists participated in the survey mentioned that they were interested in local cuisine when visiting a country. Based on another report by the World Tourism Organisation in 2017, 87% of the travel agents considered food as an important factor for each destination, and 82% agreed that food tourism is very highly significant for the growth and development of tourism in today’s date.
Vietnam is pretty ahead in this race of culinary tourism in Southeast Asia although Thailand is in the leading position. Vietnam Cuisine Culture Association has been officially launched in 2017 and the organization is working on a well-planned agenda to preserve and promote authentic Vietnamese cuisine in the global platform to attract more international tourists. According to Mr. Ky, one of the leaders of Vietnam Cuisine Culture Association, “Promoting cuisine culture will help us to promote cultural and tourism development. We need to develop a plan to promote Vietnamese food overseas.”
