Thanh Hoa – The north central
province of Thanh Hoa has organised various activities to promote its tourism
to international markets, including the Republic of Korea (RoK), with the aim of spread its image as a four-season tourist destination.

Among its major markets such as Japan, the
RoK, China and Thailand, Thanh Hoa has paid special attention to the RoK – a leading
partner of the province for years.

Pham Duc Tri, Vice Director of the province’s Centre for Investment, Trade and Tourism Promotion, said that the RoK currently has the highest number of 37 investment projects in Thanh Hoa, and ranked
second among foreign investors in terms of investment capital with about 1.62 billion
USD, accounting for 26.5 percent of the total foreign-invested projects and 11
percent of total foreign direct investment (FDI) in the province.

Korean-funded projects in Thanh Hoa have
been effective, making positive contributions to speeding up the industrial and
handicraft development in the province, creating jobs and increasing the local
budget’s revenue, said Tri.

Meanwhile, Vice Director of the provincial
Department of Culture, Sports and Tourism Vuong Thi Hai Yen said that tourist
attractions in Thanh Hoa have been popular among Korean tourists. In order to continue
to attract more visitors from the RoK, Thanh Hoa will
actively join more tourism promotion events in the RoK in the time to come.

In September, the Vietnam National
Administration of Tourism will organise a programme to introduce Vietnamese tourism
in the RoK. Thanh Hoa will take advantage of the event to further popularise
its tourism in the country by directly join the programme or sending
publications and typical products to the event to introduce the province’s
tourism potential, she said.

This year, Thanh Hoa will coordinate
closely with the Vietnam National Administration of Tourism and the Vietnamese
Tourism Ambassador in the RoK to organise activities to set up connections with
Korean partners and hold famtrips for them in Thanh Hoa, Yen said.

Thanh Hoa is seen as one of the localities
with huge potential for developing tourism on the back of its diverse and rich
tourism resources, both natural and human.

Known as a “miniature Vietnam”, Thanh Hoa has all kinds of terrain,
from mountain, midland, to plain and coast, with many beautiful landscapes and
valuable historical – cultural vestiges. At the same time, the province also
has a system of infrastructure and technical facilities for tourism that is
constantly expanding, gradually improving quality, convenience and modernity.

In recent years, Thanh Hoa has become one
of the top cities and provinces in terms of tourism growth nationwide. During
the 2016-2019 period, the number of tourist arrivals in the province grew by
15.2 percent annually while tourism revenue rose by 31.7 percent year-on-year,
contributing to local socio-economic development.

After COVID-19 was put under good control,
Thanh Hoa tourism has bustled again with the reopening of all tourist
destinations. The province is creating its image as a safe, friendly and
attractive destination. Apart from tourism resources, infrastructure and
diverse products, difference is also a highlight, thus prompting visitors to
travel to the locality.

Local tourism sector has posted impressive
growth in recent years. However, its development is still not commensurate with
potential.

Thanh Hoa’s Sam Son beach is a familiar
destination for many people. It is home to several hidden charms waiting for
tourists to explore, including Van Chai ancient fishing village. The village is
busy at dawn as fishermen returning shore with catches and those at home coming
to help sort out the fish.

Sam Son town was promoted to a city in
2017, in a move which aims to meet the local urbanisation process and develop
Sam Son into a national tourist city.

In addition to the renowned Sam Son beach,
Thanh Hoa is home to various charming others, namely Hai Tien in Hoang Hoa
district; Tien Trang Quang Xuong in Quang Xuong district; Hai Hoa and Hai Thanh
in Tinh Gia; Bai Dong (East Beach); Vinh Son; Quang Nham, and Hai Binh./.
