(+849) 0418.6939

Beautiful sites in the capital city of Hanoi and several central provinces are expected to become more popular with Japanese people after a documentary film made by the Kansai Telecasting Corporation (KTV) makes debut.

The International Cooperation Department under the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism said a KTV delegation is in Vietnam from August 19-25 to make a documentary on the Southeast Asian country’s tourism.

The Japanese film makers will shoot in popular sites in Hanoi and Thua Thien-Hue, Quang Binh and Quang Nam central provinces to capture beautiful landscapes here as well as special cultural identities of the local people.

Vietnam’s ancient hotels and its traditional dishes will be on spotlight of the film.

Thua Thien-Hue province is home to the imperial capital city recognised by the UN Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation (UNESCO) as the world cultural heritage.

The Phong Nha - Ke Bang National Park in Quang Binh province is placed in the UNESCO World Natural Heritage list and Hoi An ancient town and My Son tower in Quang Nam province are recognised by UNESCO as the World Cultural Heritages.
