Viet Nam Tourism Day runs in Czech Republic

The Viet Nam Embassy in the Czech Republic and the host country’s Ministry of Regional development co-organised the Viet Nam Tourism Day event in Prague on October 18.

The event featured an exhibition of over 100 large-size photos on Vietnamese people, landscape, seas and islands. Visitors were also treated to folk music performed by artists from the Vietnamese expatriate community in the country.

A workshop on potentials offered by Vietnamese tourism also took place, with the participation of 80 Czech travel companies. The workshop spotlighted Viet Nam’s 3,000km coastal line, which could be a big draw to tourists from the European landlocked country.

According to Vietnamese commercial counselor Tran Hiep Thuong, 10 million Czech citizens travel overseas on a yearly basis. However, only 5,000 of the sum come to Viet Nam.

He attributed the issue to the absence of a direct flight between the two nations and information on Vietnamese tourism in the Czech Republic.

That is why the Viet Nam Tourism Day was organised, Mr. Thuong said.
