The 5th International Mountain Tourism Day will take place from May 28 to June 1, and officials in Vientiane and Luang Prabang province are preparing to welcome more than 500 tourism- related company operators from Laos, China, and other nations.
The event will provide visiting tourist sector representatives with a chance to learn about tourism potential in Laos, according to Ms Dalany Phommavongsa, head of the tourism management department at the Ministry of Information, Culture, and tourist.
The promotional event will provide Laos with yet another chance to revive its tourism sector after it crashed because of the Covid-19 pandemic.
A display of mountain tourist activities, handicrafts, and other Lao tourism goods is one of the events planned for International Mountain Tourist Day.
Visitors from the tourism industry will have a deeper understanding of Laos' many scenic features and will experience the country's spectacular scenery firsthand, especially in the north.
Along with preparing for International Mountain Tourism Day, Laos is also getting ready to host the ASEAN Tourism Forum 2024 in Vientiane from January 22–27.
The event presents Laos with yet another excellent chance to promote its exciting tourist attractions and services to a sizable global market.
Laos travelers are usually eager to see the country's picturesque features and take in the customs and way of life of the locals.
The country's potential as a destination for nature-based tourism is something the administration is highlighting particularly.
The country's ethnic groups also have a variety of vibrant traditions to observe, and old temples and historical buildings are of additional appeal.
The historic part of the city of Luang Prabang, which is Laos' most well-liked tourist destination, was added to Unesco's list of World Heritage Sites in 1995.
Both the Plain of Jars in Xieng Khuang province and the Vat Phou temple are regarded as world heritage sites.
More than 831,000 foreign tourists visited Laos in the first three months of this year, a significant increase from the 211,898 foreign visitors that came to the country in the first half of 2022. This shows that tourism is on the upswing.
