Xem anh phong to
Malaysia’s Minister of Tourism YB Dato’ Sri Ng Yen Yen has just voted for Ha Long Bay to become one of the seven new wonders of the world, saying she had a very interesting time enjoying the world’s heritage site.

“That’s fantastic,” the Malaysian dignitary said about her experiences with Halong Bay in Quang Ninh Province while officiating the opening of Tourism Malaysia’s office in Hanoi on Tuesday.

“I posted on my Facebook a lot of nice pictures that I took in Halong Bay,” she said during the opening ceremony, which was also attended by Nguyen Van Tuan, head of Vietnam National Administration of Tourism.

“Vietnam is an important tourist generating market for Malaysia,” Yen Yen said. The opening of Tourism Malaysia in Hanoi is in line with the country’s efforts to enhance its presence in Vietnam and strengthen marketing networks with its Vietnamese counterparts such as tour operators, airlines, and hotels.

According to the minister, last year a total of close to 160,000 tourists from Vietnam visited Malaysia. Malaysia expects to attract 200,000 Vietnamese tourists in 2012.

The Minister of Tourism Malaysia noted that Vietnam has a long standing culture and a lot of nature wonders, so “it deserves to be one of the most interesting destinations for tourists.
