Vietnamese Travel Agencies and Media Visit Daegu, “Daegu is the best!”
An invitational FAM tour for Vietnamese travel agencies and media to develop and promote new tourism products for the 2020 Year of Daegu Gyeongbuk Tourism
In preparation of the 2020 Year of Daegu and Gyeongbuk Tourism, Daegu Metropolitan City and Daegu Tourism Bureau joined hands with Gyeongsangbuk-do and organized a FAM tour for major Vietnamese tourist agencies and media to attract Vietnamese tourists to Daegu and Gyeongbuk.
A total of 16 people participated in this FAM tour, including representatives from four major Vietnamese tourist agencies and four media companies including Hanoi TV.
The four Vietnamese travel agencies that participated in the FAM tour from November 1 to 5 are Vietravel, Saigontourist, Redtours, and Fiditour. These travel agencies have signed MOUs with Daegu Metropolitan City, Gyeongsangbuk-do, and the Hanoi Branch of Korea Tourism Organization for the development of 2020 Year of Daegu Gyeongbuk Tourism at the Daegu and Gyeongbuk Tourism Information Session held in Ho Chi Mihn, Vietnam, in May.
The FAM tour group visited major tourist attractions in Daegu that are popular among Southeast Asian travelers, such as Daegu Safety Theme Park, Palgongsan Mountain, Dongseong-ro, Seomun Market, E-World, Kim Kwang-seok Mural Road, Daegu Aquarium, and shopping outlets.
As Vietnamese tourists particularly enjoy the fall foliage, the FAM tour group visited Palgongsan Mountain and Mungyeong Saejae to enjoy the beautiful natural scenery.
“Daegu has a lot of modern attractions to enjoy, and Gyeongsangbuk-do has well-preserved traditional culture and world heritages along with beautiful nature that it was wonderful to enjoy both in this tour,” said Pham Thi Tamha from VCT4, who participated in this FAM tour. “I’m going to record the beautiful Daegu and Gyeongsangbuk-do and promote Daegu and Gyeongsangbuk-do as new tourist attractions in Korea to the people of Vietnam.”
Daegu Tourism Bureau’s CEO Oh Yong-su remarked, “We are actively promoting Daegu and Gyeongsangbuk-do to foreign tourists in preparation for the 2020 Year of Daegu Gyeongbuk Tourism. We will continue to strengthen our cooperation with Gyeongsangbuk-do to attract tourists from all across the world including Vietnam, where overseas travel has been growing in the recent years.”
