WELCOME Good evening - on behalf of World Travel Awards, it is my pleasure to warmly welcome you all to our Asia & Oceania Gala Ceremony 2019. It is this year our honour to host you here at Peppers Beach Restaurant, part of the fantastic Vinpearl Resort & Spa, here in Phu Quoc, Vietnam. As we return to this rapidly developing destination, can I offer my sincere thanks to our hosts at Vinpearl who have made this evening everything we knew it could be. This polished beachfront golf resort, set on the Gulf of Thailand, is the perfect location for our prestigious event this evening. With six restaurants and bars, a 27-hole golf course, water park, outdoor pool and world-class beach, there is plenty to keep you entertained during your time with us here. If you are look-

ing to explore, the edge of Gia Phu Quoc National Park is under 20 kilometres away. Located on the stunning Bai Dai Beach, Vinpearl Resort & Spa Phu Quo was the first resort to define this island destination, but it remains the market leader to this day. Tourism in Vietnam, too, continues to be the envy of the world. Since 2010 the number of international visitors has grown three-fold, with more than 15 million guests arriving last year. With over 3,000 kilometres of coastline, pristine beaches, dynamic cities, mountainous highlands and diverse cultural sites, there is plenty to see. Such diversity has been well rewarded, with revenue from tourism reaching VND620 trillion (US$26.75 billion) last year, up VND110 billion (US$4.75 billion) compared to 2017. This is truly one of the most dynamic hospitality markets anywhere on earth right now. Tonight is the sixth and final regional event on our annual Grand Tour - a series of events to celebrate the world’s outstanding travel brands, covering six continents and featuring over 9,000 nominees. We began 2019 in Jamaica, with Sandals Montego Bay welcoming hundreds

of industry leaders to the paradise island in January for the Caribbean & North America Gala Ceremony. This was followed by a stop at Warner Bros. World Abu Dhabi, which played host to the well-received Middle East Gala Ceremony. Next, we were welcomed to Sugar Beach – A Sun Resort in Mauritius, where upward of 500 dignitaries from across the regions joined us for the Africa & Indian Ocean Gala Ceremony. For the Europe Gala Ceremony we were welcomed to the timeless charm of Belmond Reid’s Palace, nestled on the coast of Madeira, where we were joined by the elite of the local hospitality sector. World Travel Awards then headed to the mountain city of Laz Paz, commercial capital of Bolivia, for the Latin America Gala Ceremony. Winners from each of these regional events will proceed to the Grand Final 2019, this year taking place at the Royal Opera House in Muscat. The event will take place on November 28th and I hope to see many of you in Oman for the show.

increases exponentially, revealing the tremendous public demand for the recommendation a World Travel Award signifies. The recognition we offer is one of a kind, as no other organisation has the experience, the gravitas, or the loyal following of more than half of a million travel, tourism and hospitality professionals we possess. I wish to thank our hosts this evening, Vinpearl, for their support in bringing World Travel Awards to this wonderful destination. Appreciations, too, to our International Media Partner, TV5 Monde, and our partners at Vietnam Airlines and Vietravel. Finally, congratulations to all our nominees on your endeavours and achievements this year - and the very best luck!

With smartly-designed cabins that can be booked for a minimum of four hours, it is ideal for short daytime layovers or overnight stays. The opening of Jewel further increases the airport’s wide range of shopping, dining and accommodation offerings. Changi Airport’s existing terminals house 400 retailers and 140 food and beverage outlets. With Jewel, another 280 shops and eateries are added, bringing the total number of shopping and dining offerings to 820. As for accommodation offerings, there are currently a total of 780 rooms in the transit hotels and Crowne Plaza Hotel combined.

AIRASIA X AirAsia X has finalised a firm order with Airbus for an additional 12 A330-900 and 30 A321XLR aircraft. The contract was signed by Tan Sri Rafidah Aziz, chairman of AirAsia X, and Guillaume Faury, chief executive of Airbus in Kuala Lumpur earlier.

Tan Sri Tony Fernandes, chief executive, AirAsia Group, who was present at the signing, said: “This order reaffirms our selection of the A330neo as the most efficient choice for our future widebody fleet. In addition, the A321XLR offers the longest flying range of any single aisle aircraft and will enable us to introduce services to new destinations. Together, these aircraft are perfect partners for long-haul low-cost operations and will allow us to build further on our market leading position in this fast-growing sector.” The new contract increases the number of A330neo aircraft ordered by AirAsia


X to 78, reaffirming the carrier’s status as the largest airline customer for the type. Meanwhile, the A321XLR order sees the wider AirAsia Group strengthen its position as the world’s largest airline customer for the A320 family, having now ordered a total of 622 aircraft.

Faury commented: “AirAsia X has been the pioneer of the long-haul low-cost model in the Asia-Pacific region. This new order for the A330neo and A321XLR is a true endorsement of the Airbus solution to meet mid-market demand with a combination of single aisle and widebody products. This powerful

solution will provide AirAsia X with the lowest possible operating costs to expand its network and enable even more people to fly further than ever before.” AirAsia X currently operates a fleet of 36 A330-300s on services to points within the Asia-Pacific region and the Middle East. In addition, in August the first A330neo joined the fleet of AirAsia’s Bangkok-based long-haul affiliate, AirAsia X Thailand. The aircraft is the first of two leased A330neos joining the airline’s Thai affiliate by the end of the year. Air Asia is considered Asia’s Leading Low-Cost Airline by World Travel Awards voters.

VIETNAM

As World Travel Awards arrives in Vietnam for the annual Asia & Oceania Gala Ceremony, we here take a look at this fast-developing tourism market With over 3,000 kilometres of coastline, pristine beaches, growing cities, mountainous highlands and diverse cultural sites, Vietnam’s tourism industry continues to rank among the fastest-growing in the world. Since 2010, the number of international tourists has grown three-fold, with more than 15 million guests arriving in 2018. Last year the tourism sector recorded revenue of VND620 trillion (US$26.75 billion), up VND110 billion (US$4.75 billion) compared to 2017. At the same time, the number of domestic tourists grew by 6.8 million last year, up

22

to an estimated 80 million internal trips. Vietnam - which was recently named as Asia’s Leading Destination for the first time at the World Travel Awards - offers a variety of options for tourists, such as cultural and historical tours, sea-based tours, adventure tours, eco-tours and luxurious breaks. In 2018, Ho Chi Minh City was the most popular destination, with 36.5 million visitors. This included 7.5 million international and 29 million domestic visitors. Hanoi, the capital, attracted 28 million

WWW.WORLDTRAVELAWARDS.COM

tourists, including 5.5 million international travellers. Both cities also recently featured among the top ten most dynamic cities in the world in the Short-Term City Momentum Index from JLL. Quang Ninh, a north-eastern coastal province, emerged as one of the most exciting new destinations last year, attracting 12.5 million tourists, including 5.3 million international travellers. In addition, Da Nang, one of the largest cities in Vietnam, attracted 7.7 million tourists. Other major destinations include Hoi An, a well-preserved historical trading


port, and Phu Quoc, the largest island in Vietnam and host to this evening’s World Travel Awards.

I N T E R N AT I O N A L TOURISTS Last year the number of visitors to Vietnam from Asia increased by 23.7 per cent when compared to 2017, to 12.1 million. China accounted for the majority, up by around five million, or 23.9 per cent. At the same time, 3.5 million more South Korean travellers arrived last year when compared to 2017, up by 43 per cent. Visitors from Europe and America increased by 8.1 per cent and 10.6 per cent, or 2.1 million and 903,800, respectively. Tourists from Australia increased by only four per cent in 2018, to 437,800, while inbound tourists from Africa witnessed a growth of 19.2 per cent, to 42,800. The number of visitors from only two countries witnessed a decline in 2018. Cambodia and Laos, both neighbouring countries, witnessed a decline of 8.8 per cent and 15.2 per cent respectively.

According to the Vietnam National Administration of Tourism, foreign visitors spend on an average $900 on a trip to Vietnam. This compares to the US$1,105, US$1,109 and US$1,565 spent in Singapore, Indonesia and Thailand respectively.

LONG-TERM VISION In early 2011, the Vietnamese government released Vision 2030 – a long-term plan to develop the tourism sector in the country. The document focuses on training professionals, market development, branding strategies, infrastructure development and fostering tourism products

and services with local cultural characteristics. It has been a huge success. This was followed in 2017 by a decision from the prime minister to approve a new, VND30 trillion (US$1.32 billion), program to develop tourism and transport infrastructure at major destinations. Poor provinces that are major tourist attractions will be given priority as budgets are unable to meet the investment requirements for development. Alongside that decision, the government also approved the establishment of a VND300 billion (US$12.9 million) tourism development fund for promotional activities. In addition to funding activities, the government has also relaxed visa policies by extending the existing policy of allowing visitors from 46 countries, including China, Japan, South Korea, the US, and the UK, to enter Vietnam for 30 days with a single-entry electronic visa until 2021.

MELBOURNE As the city seeks to defend its title as Australasia’s Leading Meetings & Conference Destination, officials have celebrated as the first sod is turned on the construction of a brand-new hotel at Melbourne Airport. The 464-room hotel,


created to serve Melbourne’s burgeoning conference and tourism markets, will be conveniently located steps from Terminal 4 within a new precinct known as the Hive. The ten-storey hotel will be dual-branded operating under the Novotel and ibis Styles’ brands rated four and three stars respectively, offering guests gym and pool facilities, a café, bar and restaurant plus conference room facilities. Melbourne Airport chief of property, Linc Horton, said the project represents the airport’s latest milestone in supporting the state as it moves toward becoming Australia’s biggest city. “It is really exciting to bring such a great new hotel concept to one of the great travel destinations in Australia – Melbourne, giving travellers

more choice and amenity,” said Horton. “We believe this new development will bring a much-needed social hub to our space bringing visitors and business colleagues together on the doorstep of the airport with access to more than 650 flights per day.” “Importantly, it will also open up around 120 job opportunities for hospitality and tourism staff – a huge boost for the City of Hume.” The dual-branded hotel will open in 2021. The hotel is the first major development to kick-start the airport’s Hive precinct, which will also feature a childcare facility to cater to the airport’s 20,000 strong workforce as well as office space ranging from 1,000 to 10,000 square metres.

Simon McGrath, Accor, chief operating officer Pacific, said: “Worldwide, Accor is an airport hotel specialist and we continue to innovate and lead in this sector. We are excited to be working with Melbourne Airport on this significant development and thrilled to be embarking on another dual-branded hotel complex with our internationally recognised Novotel and ibis Styles brands. This newest member of the Accor Group is a vibrant airport precinct development, which captures the essence of Melbourne through its interiors and warm welcome to guests.”
