Vietnam earns a place in the global tourism map

(VOVworld) - Vietnam has become a spotlight in the global tourism map thanks to the country’s extensive and intensive integration in the ASEAN. Director General of the Vietnam National Administration of Tourism (VNAT) Nguyen Van Tuan cited Ha Long Bay in Quang Ninh province, Hoi An ancient town in Quang Nam province, Nha Trang city in Khanh Hoa province, Sa Pa in Lao Cai, Da Nang, Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City as well-known destinations in Vietnam.

Additionally, Trang An Complex in northern Ninh Binh province, the Mekong Delta region, the northern province of Ha Giang and Phu Quoc island district in the southern province of Kien Giang have become more popular, he said.
Vietnam was selected by the UK magazine Telegraph as one of the 20 must-see destinations in the world in 2015, he noted, adding that while Hanoi and Da Nang were chosen as two of the top 10 most attractive places in Asia, Ha Long Bay and Son Doong Cave were among the 10 most impressive destinations by the global magazine Global Grasshopper.
Legal documents and policies on tourism development and visa relaxation have facilitated travel in ASEAN, he said, noting that the transparent and favourable investment climate in Vietnam, along with better coordination among sectors, has met regional integration requirements.
