Visitors have the chance to admire a 360-degree virtual monument tour on the website https://trungbayonline.hoangthanhthanglong.vn.

The website introduces an exhibition space featuring the Ly – Tran – Le Dynasties, woodblocks from the Nguyen Dynasties, as well as several online exhibitions, including “Kinh do mai muon doi” (The eternal capital), “Dat nuoc tron niem vui” (The country full of joy), “Doc lap” (Independence), and “Vi tuong huyen thoai” (Legendary General), among others.

Visitors can enjoy fascinating virtual experiences without leaving their home. These innovations have helped the tourism industry keep pace with trends in the digital age and also helped visitors access historical values.

Despite many difficulties posed by COVID-19, Vietnam’s tourism industry has intensified its digital transformation.

A series of applications on digital platforms have been researched, deployed, and put into use recently by the Vietnam National Administration of Tourism to enhance the experience for tourists. In particular, tourism communications on digital platforms have been promoted, with projects such as Google Arts & Culture – Wonders of Vietnam, “Vietnam: Travel to Love!” on YouTube, and the Vietnam Tourism Yellow Pages utility platform (https://trangvangdulichvietnam.vn).

Preparing for a “vaccine passport” programme for international visitors to a number of destinations in Vietnam, such as Phu Quoc Island in the Mekong Delta province of Kien Giang, the Tourism Information Center has created a certification system at https://travelpass.tourism.vn, to welcome visitors when international tourism activities are reopened./.
