The organizers said that this is a great opportunity to help promote its beautiful image as a safe, friendly and attractive destination to foreign travelers on the occasion of the Southeast Asian Games 31 which will take place in Hanoi and neighboring provinces at the same time.

Some cultural exchange spaces, tourist and local product booths, as well as gastronomic areas, will be set up around the iconic Hoan Kiem lake of the capital city.

Specifically, at the two cultural exchange spaces on Le Lai and Le Thach streets, 2D and 3D miniatures of Hanoi’s famous tourist destinations such as Thang Long Imperial Citadel, Temple of Literature, Son Tay Ancient Citadel among others will be set up for visitors to take “check-in” photos.

On Dinh Tien Hoang and Le Thach streets, around 80  booths of tour operators will be set up, presenting tourism products, tour combos, accommodation and flight tickets.

In addition, the Hanoi tourism festival this year also draws the participation of international travel agencies, introducing hot destinations around the world.

Visitors to the festival will have the chance to experience lots of cultural spaces as well as buy high-quality tourism products at reasonable prices offered by travel agencies.

The highlight of the Hanoi Tourism Festival 2022 is a space for craft villages and cuisine at Octagonal House.

Hanoi aims to welcome 9-10 million visitors, including 1.2-2 million foreigners this year and 12-14 million tourists, including 2.5-3.5 million foreigners in 2023.
