The captivating photographs are currently on display on the concrete wall fence of the French Consulate General building in HCM City until late January 2024.

The exhibition serves as an introduction to 14 exciting activities that travelers can explore during their vacation in France, ranging from thrilling ziplining and fascinating scuba diving to visiting majestic castles. It showcases the diverse and vibrant experiences that France has to offer.

Emmanuelle Pavillon-Grosser, the consul general of France in HCM City, shared her insights with The Saigon Times, highlighting the importance of broadening the Vietnamese people’s perception of France.

She emphasized that while the Eiffel Tower remains an iconic symbol of France, the exhibition aims to showcase the country’s natural beauty and diverse range of activities. The ultimate goal of this initiative is to inspire more people to choose France as their travel destination.

For over 30 years, France has been one of the world’s top tourist destinations. Prior to the pandemic, in 2019, France welcomed a staggering 90 million foreign tourists who came to explore its abundant natural and architectural heritage and experience its world-renowned art of living.
