Vietnam campaigns for Halong as natural wonder

2011-04-14 (GMT + 7)

The Vietnam National Administration of Tourism is printing 2 million voting guides in multiple languages among other activities in an effort to keep Halong Bay on New Open World’s 7 Natural Wonders list this year.

Hoang Thi Diep, deputy director of the tourism administration, told a conference in Ho Chi Minh City on April 9 that New Open World, which launched its publicly voted 7 Natural Wonders list on 2007, would reveal this year’s new list on November.

120 Vietnam travel companies and 3-to-5-star hotels gathered at the conference in Ho Chi Minh City to vote for Halong Bay, which has been continuously voted by people worldwide as one of the world’s 7 natural wonders.

At present, it ranks fourth after the Amazon Rainforest, the Dead Sea and the Grand Canyon.
