The tourism agency of Seoul held an event in Hanoi on September 3 to promote the capital city of the Republic of Korea to Vietnamese travellers, with the participation of Korean firms and 130 travel and aviation enterprises of Vietnam.

In the recent three years, the number of Vietnamese tourists visiting the RoK rose about 40 percent per year, making Vietnam one of the major markets of the RoK and Seoul in particular.

At the programme, the organisation board introduced new destinations in Seoul and a new tour to attract more Vietnamese visitors who are interested in the culture, entertainment and beauty sectors of the RoK.
