Will food experiences drive the recovery of tourism? Absolutely.
.
Food tourism is more than just sitting in a restaurant. It’s a window into understanding the local culture. It can take many forms, from market tours to cooking classes; increasingly, local authorities and businesses are finding more creative, innovative, hands-on ways to showcase their local foods and culinary traditions, bringing visitors and locals closer together.
.
As the tourism industry embarks on the difficult road to recovery in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic, food tourism is going to play a significant role. As many as 80% of travellers consider their food options before picking a destination. The WTO estimates that one-third of travel budgets is spent on food, and travellers who define themselves as food travellers spend 24% more than the average.
.
Mekong Tourism Coordinating Office is delighted to support the Food and Agro-Tourism Group of Destination Mekong on how tourism professionals in the region who are interested in sharing their ideas about food tourism and how innovating in the field will assist in recovery when travel resumes.

ASEAN-Korea Center to present a virtual trip to ASEAN countries

The ASEAN-Korea Center has organized a virtual “ASEAN Familiarization Tour” to enhance the ASEAN-Korea tourism cooperation.

The tour, which lets Korean travel journalists and social media influencers explore tourism destinations in ASEAN member states, moved online last year, when global travel restrictions began. The center produced promotional videos introducing tourism spots and resources in ASEAN countries.

This year, Korean actress and entertainer So Yu-jin and millennials from ASEAN will take online trips to four ASEAN countries -- Brunei, Indonesia, Myanmar and Vietnam.

This is an interesting and very relevant Skift article..What this article however does not mention is the power of transnational cross-border tourism corporations, such as the Mekong Tourism Coordinating Office (MTCO) and Destination Mekong , the South Pacific Tourism Organization, the Caribbean Tourism Organization (CTO) , the European Travel Commission (ETC), Tourism ASEAN and Aseanta , and others.
At Mekong Tourism, we have done our award-winning regional Mekong Moments and Mekong Minis Movie Festival campaigns, as well as our Experience Mekong Collection and MIST: Mekong Innovations in Sustainable Tourism platforms for small social enterprises, starting back in 2017, working collaboratively with our six member governments to promote the Mekong Region as an inclusive and experiential travel destination.
More than ever are regional tourism collaborations critical to aide the accelerated tourism recovery. This will be especially important in combating the threats of climate change and achieving the UN Sustainability Development Goals.
