Representatives from Indian press agencies scoped out Vietnamese tourism products in the central province of Thua Thien-Hue on Wednesday.
The 15-member delegation represent Indian agencies such as Stardust, Nat Geo, The Times of India, and the Maharashtra Times.
They visited a number of tourist attractions throughout the locality, including the Hue imperial citadel, Thien Mu pagoda, the royal tomb of King Khai Dinh, and the tomb of King Tu Duc.
They also tried on some traditional outfits in Hue, travelled around the city by cyclo and double-decker bus, sampled some local delicacies, and toured around Tam Giang langoon and Huong (Perfume) River.
Nguyen Van Phuc, director of the Thua Thien-Hue Department of Tourism, briefed the Indian visitors on the province’s tourism development potential and post-pandemic tourism recovery efforts, saying the local tourism industry has now fully opened its doors to welcome international visitors and stimulate greater tourism demand.
Phuc said he hopes that the group would return home and introduce Vietnam as a safe, friendly, and hospitable tourist destination to Indian people, travel agencies, and investors.
