Six ‘online tourism ambassadors,’ comprising two Vietnamese and four foreign YouTube personalities, have spent three days exploring different famous attractions in Vietnam, with their experiences filmed for a travel series to be broadcast on the Google-owned video-sharing site.

The YouTube video bloggers have been invited to a three-day fam trip through Quang Binh Province and its neighbors, including Da Nang City and Quang Nam Province, as part of a travel promotion campaign of Quang Binh tourism authorities.

The program, Google Adventure Vietnam, was launched in cooperation with Google to expose Vietnam’s tourism potential to the world via YouTube videos of the six content creators, who all have multimillion-subscriber channels on the world’s largest video-sharing platform.

The YouTube personalities, referred to in the program as ‘online tourism ambassadors,’ are Emrah Tekin from Germany, Pierre Liu from Taiwan, Park Woo Sung from South Korea, Reimari Germar from the Philippines, and Le Hoang Nam and Pham Van Du from Vietnam.

The YouTubers and the program producers started their filming on June 28 with a nine-kilometer journey through the epic Tu Lan Cave in Quang Binh, passing several streams, rocky hills and chasms along the way.

On their second day, the ‘online tourism ambassadors’ were given a rare opportunity to admire the spectacular landscapes of Vietnam’s north-central region from 300 meters above the ground during their flight from Dong Hoi, the capital city of Quang Binh, to Da Nang City on a seaplane.

From Da Nang, the group moved to Hoi An City in Quang Nam Province, where they were challenged by a number of interesting tasks such as figuring out what the local delicacies and famous landmarks are, and trying to find and buy them.

The video creators were allowed to use Google technology to complete these assignments.

They also visited Thanh Ha Pottery Village, a favorite stopover by foreign visitors located just three kilometers west of Hoi An, where the significant traditional craft has been kept for centuries.

Another stop in Hoi An was Tra Que Vegetable Village, where the team experienced farming and cooking activities with local people, before returning to Da Nang and finishing their three-day trip on the Golden Bridge, a new must-visit spot in the city.

The publishing schedule for Google Adventure Vietnam remains undisclosed as post-production is underway.

Besides Google Adventure Vietnam, the Quang Binh tourism department and Google Asia Pacific also cooperate in another program, where more than 1,000 photos featuring the picturesque and spectacular attractions in the Vietnamese localities above will be hosted on the ‘online museum’ Google Arts & Culture from the third quarter of this year.
