Welcome to the 6th edition of our Mekong Tourism Newsletter.
After consulting with quite a few travel professionals as well as our tourism working group of the six Mekong countries, ee have decided on the theme of our next Mekong Tourism Forum in July in Sihanoukville: "Developing authentic experiences along the Mekong River." Today's travellers are looking to connect with local communities, and experience travel off the beaten path - and this holds also true for the emerging Chinese market, which may surprise some. We are working on an exciting program, and we hope you will join us at MTF 2016, and participate in an open forum as we prepare the next 10 year GMS Tourism Sector Strategy. And the best part: courtesy of the Ministry of Tourism Cambodia, MTF 2016 is free of charge for travel professionals. Don't miss it, and register today!
I look forward to seeing you in 2016.
