highlighting the remarkable museums, theatres and relics in the capital will be
launched by the Vietnam National Administration of Tourism (VNAT).
The VNAT cooperated with travel agents to
organise pilot tours to connect tourists with some attractions of the capital
on January 18 and 19.
The activity aims to realise the direction
of Minister of Culture, Sports and Tourism Nguyen Ngoc Thien on plans to
organise high-quality art programmes and build cultural products to serve
tourists, according to Nguyen Dao Dung, vice chairman of the Travel Department
(under the VNAT).
Following the direction, the VNAT coordinated
with the Vietnam National Museum of History, the Vietnam Fine Arts Museum, the Vietnam
National Puppetry Theatre, the Centre for Research, Preservation and Promotion
of Vietnamese Traditional Culture and travel agencies to build tours to connect
museums and theatres with tourism products.
Tours entitled “History of Vietnam –
Discovering of the Earth”, "History of Vietnam - Dawn on the Rivers",
"Vietnamese Fine Arts - Treasures in Hanoi" and "Vietnam
Countryside - a View" have been carried out.
“We want to bring more visitors to these
places to give them a panoramic view of the culture and history of Vietnam in
general and Hanoi in particular,” said Dung.
“Now foreign tourists to Hanoi have more
options to visit.” - VNA
