For the first time, Vietnamese tourism agencies are displaying their products at an international tourism fair in Tehran, Iran, which commenced on February 12.

The Vietnamese pavilion attracted a large crowd of Iranian friends to examine the tourism opportunities in Vietnam during the first day of the fair, which is the eighth of its kind.

The visitors were particularly impressed by the Vietnamese “non la” (conical hat), “ao dai” (long dress), and local cuisine.

Several businesses in the host country also took the occasion to work with the Vietnamese Embassy in Iran, and Eviva and South Pacific tour operators to launch tour packages for Iranian nationals to visit Vietnam. They also expressed their intent to further explore bilateral cooperation in the field.

The fair offers a brilliant opportunity for Vietnamese firms to promote the country’s tourism sector to international friends from Armenia, India, the Republic of Korea, Malaysia, Turkey, China, Tunisia, and Switzerland.

It will run until February 15.-VNA
