PHÚ QUỐC — More than 110 hotels, resorts and tourist enterprises were honoured at The Guide Awards 2017 on Phú Quốc Island of the southern province of Kiên Giang.
The annual awards, organised by The Guide magazine of the Vietnam Economic Times late last week, recognise the achievements and contributions of enterprises, organisations, and individuals in Việt Nam to the country’s tourism sector.
Speaking at the awards ceremony, Vietnam Economic Times editor-in-chief Đào Nguyên Cát said that The Guide is an effective supporting tool for Vietnamese tourism as it is one of Việt Nam’s leading English-language publications on the subject.
“Like its name ‘The Guide’, the publication offers useful and up-to-date information on Việt Nam’s culture and lifestyle to foreign readers. It can be said The Guide is a bridge linking Vietnamese tourism and international friends,” he said.
