Vietnam tourism advertised on French TV

A film crew from France's TV5 channel has shot the Vit Co Xanh ecological village in northern Hoa Binh Province and Sao Bien yacht in Halong Bay, Quang Ninh Province. French film makers came to Vietnam under the sponsorship of Vietnam Adventure Company.

This film will be broadcasted on TV5's Tourism Discover programme, which introduces unique tourist sites to the French-speaking community. The film will be on TV5 Quebec (Canada) in January 2010 and on global TV5 Monde in March 2010.

In Vietnam, apart from shooting the world natural heritage site of Halong Bay, the French film crew paid special attention to the community tourism model, with Vit Co Xanh ecological tourist site as the example.

France is a key market for the Vietnamese tourism industry. Around 300,000 French visitors come to Vietnam annually to discover culture, history and ecological tourism.
