Last week: We asked readers and industry insiders what they thought about events like the Miss Universe Beauty pageant and whether they felt these events had helped to promote Viet Nam as a tourist destination. Julia Morley, chairperson of Miss World Ltd I think Viet Nam is the number one tourist destination in the world, for the following reasons: First and foremost for any tourist destination it is important to make guests feel welcome and comfortable. For the Vietnamese people this comes naturally. I have found them to be extremely helpful. In Viet Nam one is always made to feel completely welcome, nothing is too much trouble. Aside from the people, Viet Nam is exquisite and a photographer's dream. Viet Nam has a lot to be proud of and it should look to the future with great confidence. Mai Phuong Lan, Ha Noi The news that Viet Nam was hosting "Miss Universal" surprised me. My … [Read more...] about Is hosting international events the best way to promote Viet Nam?
