HÀ NỘI — China and Việt Nam will continue to promote tourism between the two countries to enhance better mutual understanding, experts said at a conference yesterday in Hà Nội.
The conference which was jointly organised by Henan Tourism Administration and Việt Nam National Administration of Tourism (VNAT) to promote tourism in Henan, China’s 5th largest provincial economy.
Henan is the birthplace of Chinese civilization, with over 3,000 years of recorded history. It was China’s cultural, economical, and political center until about 1,000 years ago. The ruins of the Shang Dynasty capital city Yin, the Shaolin Temple, and four of the eight great ancient capitals of China - Luoyang, Anyang, Kaifeng and Zhengzhou - are all in Henan.
Kou Wu Jiang, director of Henan Tourism Administration, said at the conference that in 2015, two million Vietnamese tourists visited China, demonstrating Vietnamese interest in China’s landscapes and culture.
Last year Việt Nam launched its biggest ever promotional campaign in China, its largest visitor market, and brought a new wave of Chinese tourists to Việt Nam, said Nguyễn Văn Tuấn, director of VNA.
