As it says beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder, likewise, luxury is in the experiences. Those days were gone when luxury was defined by extravagance and opulence. On today’s date, luxury is all about sanity and experiences. It can be redefined as meta luxury- redesigning personal brand and excellence. The luxury landscape in the travel industry is also changing and evolving constantly driven by the traveler’s perception. Luxury travel may or may not be glamorous but it is always meant as the luxury travelers are disrupting the trend and always keen to enjoy exceptional experiences and are willing to spend an extra bit to buy lifetime experiences revolving around eco-centricity, freedom, inner-peace, kindness, relationship, security, and wisdom. These values serve as the driving factors in today’s luxury landscape.
Who are Luxury Travelers
At a macro level, luxury travel is mostly towards personal contentment with exclusive travel memories that can resonate many years later. Luxury relativism is the main element today that an expert travel advisor needs to realize. There are three main categories of consumers in the luxury travel market among which the first one is very obvious- the high net-worth travelers looking for the best of everything, but the next two categories are the most crucial ones who are redefining luxury travel at every turn. They do not believe in traveling in the luxury bubble but want innovation and creativity in their enticing travel moments and environments while appreciating the hidden treasures of local cultures. It is like a DIY concept.

Luxury Travel Vietnam, the leading high-end DMC in Southeast Asia and the first luxury tour operator in Vietnam is dealing with all the aforesaid categories of luxury travelers for the past 15 years and the travel advisors know how luxury traveling is evolving these days among the discerning travelers. Personalization is the key influence. It is not always very big but can be extremely unusual yet exclusive. Advisors at Luxury Travel Vietnam says that a typical luxury journey begins with individualization of travel itinerary and ends somewhere beyond imagination for which they often need to move beyond the scope to make it happen impeccably.

Yes, ‘seamless’ execution is an important criterion for a leading DMC. Time is limited and highly vital for the clients and they need to enjoy everything smoothly during their travel vacation with their loved ones.
Exploring the undiscovered islands or swimming in the secluded beaches in the Halong region is ideal escapism for many travelers to Vietnam. A seaplane journey in Halong Bay often delivers the clients an out-of-the-world thrill as they experience the captivating moments of viewing the limestone seascape from the sky. Discovering the potentially last unexplored destination is probably where luxury travel is heading towards. Even if the accommodation is not meeting the basic standards of luxury, sometimes clients want to cruise or fly to remote destinations in Sapa or Cat Ba Archipelago to dive deep into the local authentic and enjoy a meal with ethnic locals, listening to their daily life stories. On the other hand, some clients define luxury in setting up a meeting with Pham Luc, the eminent Vietnamese painter specialized in traditional Vietnam, and war subjects or a cooking class from the chef of a tribal family in the distant villages of Mekong Delta.
