NDO – Tourists destinations from Vietnam and ASEAN countries will be promoted to people from the Republic of Korea (ROK) through videos produced by the ASEAN-Korea Centre (AKC).

The AKC say that the production and posting of videos promoting the tourism of ASEAN countries aims to enhance the cooperation and development of tourism between the ROK and ASEAN in the context that tourists cannot travel due to COVID-19 pandemic.

The first four episodes on Brunei, Indonesia, Myanmar and Vietnam will be published from now until September 8. The Korean actress So Yu-jin, along with young people from Southeast Asian nations, will talk about destinations in their native languages.

The videos will be posted on the Youtube channel of the ROK-ASEAN Centre and the official information channel of the tourism sectors of the four ASEAN countries.

The episode about Vietnam, one of ASEAN nations welcoming the most visitors from the ROK, introduces the traditional dishes of the Vietnamese people such as pho (noodle soup), banh mi (bread), banh xeo (literary sizzling cake or fried pancakes made of rice flour, turmeric powder, and slivers of fatty pork, shrimp) and Hue’s imperial cuisine.

In addition, audiences will have the chance to visit the ancient town of Hoi An, recognised as a world heritage by UNESCO, as well as famous landscapes including Tam Coc, Trang An, Dong Van rock plateau, Phu Quoc island and Nha Trang.
