CNN runs a short video promoting tourism along the S-shaped country
The short video features the top scenic places across the S-shaped country, promoting a safe, new, and attractive destination on the world’s tourism map. The question “When you’re ready to travel again, why not Vietnam?” at the end of the video is an invitation to international visitors during the post-COVID-19 period.
The promotion video was part of Vietnam’s second tourism stimulus program. It will be broadcasted on CNN until mid-November when the US and international media focus their attention on the 2020 US Presidential Election.
Along with targeting US media, the Vietnam National Administration of Tourism is also preparing for other media marketing campaigns to attract global attention during this prime time.
Last summer, BBC Asia-Pacific also broadcasted a video highlighting Da Nang tourism in 30 seconds. Hanoi had also spent US $2 million to promote its image on CNN between 2017 and 2018.
