Hanoi Tourism Festival 2023 to lure travelers
Update: Mar 22, 2023
The Hanoi Tourism Festival 2023 is set to get underway from March 23 to 26 in the city centre to introduce local attractive tourist destinations, products, and services to international visitors.

At a recent press conference, Nguyen Thi Mai Anh, deputy director of the Hanoi Centre for Investment, Trade and Tourism Promotion, said the event due to take place at the pedestrian zone around the Hoan Kiem (Restored Sword) lake aims to promote cultural exchanges, honour cultural heritage, and ramp up tourism promotion activities.

With 150 booths displaying products from nearly 100 travel businesses, including Vietnam Airlines and Vietravel, it is hoped that these will serve as a magnet to attract visitors.

Travel businesses will launch a range of stimulus programmes, along with organising mini-game shows to attract visitors.

Most notably, products of the capital’s craft villages such as Bat Trang, Van Phuc, and Duong Lam will be showcased as part of the festival.

Special tours aimed to explore heritage sites throughout Hanoi including Co Loa citadel, Thang Long imperial citadel, and Vinh Nghiem pagoda will also be introduced to visitors.

How to develop heritage tourism products will be discussed at a conference slated for March 23. In addition, a cyclo parade to re-enact the traditional wedding of Hanoians will be held on March 25.
