It takes about 2 hours to drive from Ho Chi Minh City, Ho Tram is the choice of many tourists in the southern region to relax. Ho Tram Beach was once ranked by CNN Go as one of the most beautiful beaches on the planet. Besides natural advantages, the methodical investment is helping Ho Tram 'change its appearance'.

Advantages of Ho Tram

With its location near Ho Chi Minh City, the largest economic center in the south, Ho Tram has a great advantage in attracting tourists. Ho Tram quickly emerged as a phenomenon of southern tourism when short-distance and short-term vacations are the most popular ever

Ho Tram attracts domestic and foreign tourists thanks to its fresh sea breeze, clear blue water surface, fine sandy shore, many fresh seafood dishes, interesting games and private resort space.

When Long Thanh Airport (Dong Nai) officially opens, Ho Tram promises to welcome a large number of passengers thanks to its convenient travel distance (only about an hour's drive).

According to calculations, when phase 1 is completed in 2025, the airport can welcome up to 25 million passengers/year. Instead of mainly attracting tourists in the southern region, Ho Tram and the whole province of Ba Ria - Vung Tau will have the opportunity to attract a huge number of tourists outside the southern region.

However, the location advantage will not be realized if Ho Tram lacks attractiveness. Nature gives Ho Tram one of the most beautiful beaches in Vietnam and in the world. The temperature here ranges from 25-30 degrees Celsius. The warm weather almost all year round makes this place a priority for tourists when thinking about travelling.

The green area is what many tourists look for after the pandemic. Travel is no longer just 'go and play'. Today, tourists want to go to tourist destinations in harmony with nature as a 'soul healing therapy'.

Coming to Ho Tram, tourists can find a huge green patch in the Binh Chau - Phuoc Buu primeval forest with an area of over 11,000 hectares. This place is considered the 'green lung' of Xuyen Moc district and the whole Southeast region. On the other hand, the resorts in Ho Tram also focus on providing green space and 'healing' treatments for tourists.

The future of Ho Tram

According to many experts in the tourism industry, the development momentum of Ho Tram is in line with the trend of resorting after the epidemic.

Earlier this year, the report of Savills Hotels also showed that Ho Tram ranked first in the proportion of hotels and resorts reopening after the epidemic. The rental capacity and occupancy rate at hotels and resorts in the region are over 80%, especially the luxury accommodation type always reaches 100% of weekend rental capacity.

On the other hand, the resort model in Ho Tram is also 'catching waves' with the new needs of tourists. Not only bringing a feeling of harmony with nature, Ho Tram promises to also create 'a paradise of resort combined with entertainment'.

According to many experts in the field of tourism, tourists now no longer think to 'resort is to swim in the sea'. Tourism destinations need to change and introduce new types of entertainment and services to suit the needs of tourists.

Not only attracting tourists to resort, Ho Tram also emerges as the most potential 'golf tourism' destination in Vietnam. Golf tourism is forecasted to develop strongly in the coming years, attracting a large number of domestic and foreign tourists.

In Ho Tram, the most prominent can be mentioned The Bluffs Grand Ho Tram Strip. This golf course is ranked 35th among the best courses in the world by Golf Digest. This can be seen as an affirmation of the potential for the development of the 'money-making' type of tourism that many localities are interested in.

Ho Tram still has a long way of development ahead. However, with the available advantages and the investment of many businesses, Ho Tram can completely become the high-class tourism capital in the southern market.
