The film features Vietnam’s beautiful landscapes, culture, and people in six main locations: Hanoi, Ho Chi Minh City, Da Nang, Hoi An, My Son, and Ha Giang.

“A tourist's guide to love” tells the romantic heart-healing story of Amanda Riley, who works for a high-end world travel agency, played by Rachael Leigh Cook. Amanda is sent to Vietnam on business, which is a welcome distraction as she has just broken up with her boyfriend.

In Vietnam, Amanda meets Sinh Thach, played by Vietnamese-American actor Scott Ly, a handsome Vietnamese tour guide who is trying to revive his uncle's company. They visit famous landmarks across Vietnam and gradually fall in love. The film also stars Vietnamese actors Truc Tran and Emeritus Artist Le Thien.

Many viewers said they wanted to come to Vietnam to visit the places that appeared in the movie and experience Vietnamese culture.
