Ho Chi Minh City begins 100 Exciting Things tourism campaign
 

The second Ho Chi Minh City – 100 Exciting Things campaign to promote the city’s image and tourism is underway.

According to the organizers, the city’s Department of Culture, Sports, and Tourism and association of tourism, a voting phase will run through July 30 on both paper, available for tourists and experts at city tourism spots, and online.

Votes can be cast at www.excitinghochiminhcity.vn, www.saigon100dieuthuvi.vn, www.nhungdieuthuvitphcm.com.

There are 20 categories this year, double the number of the first campaign in 2010, but each has only five choices compared to 10 earlier.

The categories include 5 Interesting Tourism Events, 5 Interesting Art Performance Locations, 5 Favorite Southern Delicacies, 5 Favorite Types of Fruit, 5 Attractive Architectures, and 5 Typical Markets. Each category has a list of requirements.

The organizers, at a press conference last December, received complaints that many categories have ambiguous requirements as well as similar criteria.

The city People’s Committee said that in the first five months of this year more than 1.5 million foreign tourists arrived, 10 percent higher than in the same period of last year. (By Phuong Anh, Thanh Nien News)
