HÀ NỘI — Information and photos of destinations in Indonesia are on display at an exhibition titled Hello Indonesia that opened yesterday in Hà Nội.
Visitors can learn more about famous tourist areas such as North Sumatra’s Toba Lake, the largest volcanic lake in the world; Bali; Borobudor Temple, the largest Buddhist Temple in the world, located in Magelang, Central Java; the ancient capital Yogyakarta; and Labuan Bajo Island, home to the Komodo dragon.
The Embassy of the Republic of Indonesia organised the exhibition with the aim of promoting Indonesia as an attractive destination and introducing Vietnamese tourists to special package tours and ticket fares, according to Linda Widiyanti, Third Secretary of the Embassy.
“Many Vietnamese already know about the Indonesia’s famous island of Bali, which is at the top of TripAdvisor’s best destination list for 2017,” she said. “Many Vietnamese may also already know the famous Borobudor Temple and other beauty spots. And I believe many Vietnamese people are also familiar with Jakarta with hundreds of shopping malls and endless lifestyle and entertainment offerings.”
But many Vietnamese may not know how to get there, or to Bali and Yogyakarta. They may believe travelling to Indonesia is too expensive.
“This encouraged us to co-operate with the airlines and travel agents to hold this exhibition to connect Vietnamese travellers with the best offers available to explore Indonesia from affordable airline tickets to tour package deals,” she said.
Five esteemed exhibitors, namely Vietjet Air, Hanoi Red Tours, Golden Tours, Roko Travel and Rubicon Tours will offer their best promotions to Indonesia at the exhibition, as well as sharing their own experience about travelling to Indonesia.
The exhibition will run until January 13 at the Umah Indo Exhibition House, 40 Trần Hưng Đạo Street, Hà Nội. — VNS
