HCM CITY (VNS) — The ASEAN Friendship Caravan with around 50 travel agents and media from Thailand and other ASEAN countries arrived in HCM City on Wednesday.
The 10-day, 3,400-kilometre road trip aims to strengthen regional co-operation and promote overland connectivity.
The caravan started on January 7 in Thailand and then travelled through Laos, Viet Nam and Cambodia, and will return to Thailand.
During five days in Viet Nam, the Caravan group visited HCM City, Phan Thiet City, Lam Dong and Gia Lai provinces.
The Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) in co-operation with Toyota Motor Thailand Company organised the trip as part of its strategy to promote greater intra-regional travel within ASEAN countries. — VNS
