HÀ NỘI — The Việt Nam National Administration of Tourism (VNAT) has launched a campaign aimed at promoting tourism.
The campaign takes advantage of the popularity amongst Vietnamese of taking selfies. Instead of using their own camera, people can stop by a government placed camera on a podium on Thanh Niên Road, Hà Nội and take a selfie with a backdrop of West Lake. The camera will be placed there until September 4.
Organised by the VNAT and VNTRIP Company, the campaign will run through next year at iconic places in localities such as West Lake in Hà Nội, Nguyễn Huệ Street in HCM City and Mỹ Khê beach in Đà Nẵng.
The project is expected to inspire domestic and foreign tourists, as well as use the strength of the community and social networking to introduce outstanding national destinations, thus increasing the identification of Việt Nam’s tourism trademark, drawing more domestic and international visitors and boosting the tourism industry.
