Lately I was invited to visit ITE Ho Chi Minh City, a travel trade show bringing all the South East Asian countries together to collaborate on future tourism projects. As a media invite I was here to cover stories and spread the word about ITE HCMC. As part of the trip I was put up in the best boutique hotel in Ho Chi Minh City and I could not resist sharing this place with you.
Last September 2018 it was already my 4th trip to Vietnam and I finally got the chance to write about buying a sim card in Vietnam. This time I had the chance to visit Phong Nha-Ke Bang National Park as part the annual Travel Trade Show ITE HCMC 2018. It is not a secret that Vietnam can be a chaos for buying things as prices differ quite a lot and Vietnamese are die-hard sellers. Let’s see if that also counts for a sim card for tourists in Vietnam.
Being back home in Holland was lovely but I knew there was another adventure waiting for me. A couple weeks ago while I was driving around in Nusa Penida in Indonesia I got the confirmation that I was selected as one of the bloggers to come to Ho Chi Minh City to attend a Travel Trade Show. After the World Tourism Forum in Istanbul last February this was going to be my second Travel Conference and I could not wait to hop on a plane and get my ass back to Vietnam!
As part of our press trip to ITE Ho Chi Minh City we were able to choose a fam trip destination somewhere around Saigon. It was already more than 8 years ago I was in the South of Vietnam the last time so I decided to go on a Mekong Delta tour and see if I could still remember something of my trip around the world in 2009.
A year passed by since I last visited Ho Chi Minh City. Exactly one year ago ITE HCMC 2017 was a great trip and since I kept so many good memories about visiting Vietnam I decided to come back this year for ITE HCMC 2018. The largest travel trade show in Vietnam is called the International Travel Expo and is annually held in Ho Chi Minh City.
