People can explore highlights of the exhibit, watch videos of sites set to traditional Vietnamese music or take a bird’s-eye view of famous sites through panoramic pictures. This project is an important part of Google’s overall support of the local tourism industry, which has been badly affected with travel restrictions because of the pandemic.

By showcasing the wonders of Vietnam, specifically from the Central region, the project aims to also raise awareness on preserving the sites affected by the recent floods in Central Vietnam.

“Promoting digital transformation and accelerating the application of technology in advertising promotion are an important direction of the Vietnam tourism industry to proactively approach and effectively take part in the 4th Industrial Revolution.

"We highly appreciates Google's initiative in implementing Wonders of Vietnam online exhibition project, showcasing outstanding features of Vietnam's Heritage, Culture and Cuisine,” VNAT Deputy Director  Ha Van Sieu said.

“Given how severely the tourism industry all over the world, and particularly in Vietnam, has been affected by the pandemic, we knew it was even more important to make Wonders of Vietnam accessible to the world, so more people can experience what Vietnam is all about,” said Amit Sood, Director, Google Arts & Culture. “I am grateful to our partners for working with us to showcase such a rich view of the sites and culture of Vietnam.”
