Bangkok (Thailand) – June 17, 2015 – Travelindex.com (www.travelindex.com), has enhanced its Greater Mekong Sub-region travel and tourism portal to support the 2015 Mekong Tourism Forum, held in Vietnam, during June 15-19, 2015. The Mekong Tourism Forum this year aims to establish and enhance partnership between public and private sectors to “collaborate, discuss, and debate on key issues to position the Greater Mekong Sub-region (GMS) as a single tourism destination, promoting multi-country travel and travel to secondary destinations”.
Travelindex with its VisitMekong.org (www.VisitMekong.org) has been promoting the Sub-region for many years as a single tourism destination with an easy and free access to multi-country information on primary and secondary destination.
The GMS comprises Cambodia, Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region and Yunnan Province, China, Laos, Myanmar, Thailand, and Vietnam. These mountainous regions, bounded by the Mekong River, are fast becoming the top tourist destinations for Asia because of its laid back ambiance and ancient charm. The diverse topography and multi-layered culture of these countries, however, make it hard for travellers to plan for an itinerary. Looking for a place to stay can be difficult as well.
The very important information need by travelers for multi-country and cross-border travel was recognised by Travelindex, since its inception, offering free and open source regional information and data to both tourists and travel professionals planning cross-border travel within the Greater Mekong Sub-region.
Travelindex Founder, Bernard Metzger said, “Today’s travelers expect to be able to easily find all that the Mekong Region has to offer before they make their holiday and cross-border travel plans. Our strategy is to use all available online tools and channels to promote undiscovered, secondary destinations and remote lands while supporting local communities and their efforts to preserve the environment.”
The VisitMekong.org website is a one stop portal that can help visitors with quick research on tourist destinations, hotels, and even tourist operators available in the GMS. The site also has an option where visitors can write their own personal reviews and recommendations.
