The Vietnam National Administration of Tourism (VNAT) said Thursday that it has launched the Korean version of its website in a bid to diversify its content and better promote the country’s tourism to Korean tourists.
The new version is available on VNAT’s website, at www.vietnamtourism.com, as part of the National Tourism Promotion Program.
The edition will provide Korean tourists with abundant tourism information, including scenic spots, tourist services and not-to-be-missed information and events.
The move is expected to better promote Vietnam’s tourism to Korean tourists and boost the number of visits from the East Asian country, VNAT said.
Introduced in December 1997, the website is an official portal providing a wide range of tourist information, including tours, scenic spots, tourism events, and activities.
It now boasts editions in a total of six languages: Vietnamese, English, French, Chinese, Japanese and Korean.
Over the past several years, myriad activities and events have been organized to promote Vietnamese tourism in other countries, particularly South Korea, VNAT said.
Vietnam has seen a surge of Korean tourists in recent years, and the East Asian country has grown to be one of its top tourism markets.
Vietnam is the third ASEAN country, after Thailand and the Philippines, which Korean tourists are particularly interested in.
ASEAN is a ten-member bloc which includes such Southeast Asian countries as Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, Brunei, Cambodia, Laos, Myanmar, and Vietnam.
