In the strategy and approach to tourism development must change to suit the actual conditions in the new period. Provinces and cities have jointly determined changes in the direction of developing the domestic market and preparing to develop the international market at an appropriate time. The Southeast region always welcomes and serves the largest number of tourists compared to other regions in the country. In 2019, the country welcomed 18 million international visitors, serving 85 million domestic visitors, the total revenue from tourism reached 726,000 billion VND; in which the Southeast region has welcomed and served 9,500,000 international visitors, nearly 40,000,000 domestic visitors, the total tourism revenue reached about VND 160,000 billion.
However, this result is not really commensurate with the strategic position, potential and advantages of the region's tourism resources. The organization of conferences is a practical initiative to continue promoting cooperation and development of regional tourism in general and localities in the region in particular. Therefore, leaders of 6 provinces and cities in the Southeast region, including: Ho Chi Minh City, Dong Nai, Ba Ria - Vung Tau, Binh Duong, Binh Phuoc and Tay Ninh, signed a cooperation agreement on construction and development of tourism program in the Southeast region and announcing 3 inter-regional product routes. In particular, there will be 3 new interregional products exploited by provinces, including:
- Tour Ho Chi Minh City - Binh Duong - Tay Ninh, 2-day-1-night route to Thai Son Pagoda, Thanh Dai Temple, Ba Den Mountain Cable Car, Dau Tieng Lake ...
- The second route is Ho Chi Minh City - Binh Duong - Tay Ninh with the theme "Green new day", "Conquering the roof of the Southern region"
- Route 3 includes Ho Chi Minh City - Dong Nai - Ba Ria - Vung Tau ... with a series of attractions such as Tran Bien Temple of Literature, Tan Trieu Pomelo Village, Robert Taylor's Ancient Weapon Museum, Cloud Lake Cable Car Tourist Area. ..
It is known that 9 businesses in Ho Chi Minh City including Saigontourist, Vietravel, Ben Thanh, TST ... signed a cooperation agreement with 20 enterprises of five Southeast provinces in developing tourism stimulating products. Most tours to the Southeastern provinces are operated in the direction of 2-day-1-night packages, with discount rates from 10-50%, from VND 1,390,000 - VND 1,490,000 / person.
