Top 100 tourism brands for foreign visitors get final vote

The 100 best tourism brands in HCMC for international tourists have finally been singled out and tourism authorities will announce the city’s first-ever 100 exciting items on February 1, said a tourism official.
Nguyen Viet Anh, head of the travel division under the city’s Department of Culture, Sports and Tourism, told the Daily that the selection committee picked the 100 brands on Tuesday from a list of 150 nominated items following a poll among tourists. The committee had earlier sent 14,000 ballots to voters.

Anh said the organizer would announce the list in a ceremony to honor such best tourism brands on February 1.

The “Exciting HCMC” program is organized by the city government and its tourism department with an aim to develop tourism products in the city and promote the city’s image to tourists.

Given the votes by tourists, the organizer will also select the best Vietnamese boutique services hotels, excellent Vietnamese restaurants, best shopping places for tourists, Vietnamese souvenirs and gifts, exciting entertainment venues, and stylish coffee shops.

Other categories are Vietnamese must-taste and must-see, the most favorite city tour programs, and prominent cultural, sport and tourism events.

Anh said that the department would print brochures, books as well as make DVDs and memory sticks as soon as possible to promote the selected brands to foreign partners at upcoming travel exhibitions and via Vietnamese embassies abroad.

The department is carrying out a similar program to select best brands for domestic travelers. The selection committee will have a meeting soon to choose the brands from votes by local tourists, and the final list will also be honored in the ceremony on February 1.
