Update: Feb 15, 2009
The 2009 Vietnam Sea Festival will be held in Paris, France on April 28-29 to promote advertising programmes and attract foreign visitors to tourist sites in Vietnam.

The festival is organised by the national flagship, Vietnam Airlines, in coordination with the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism and the Vietnamese Embassy in France.

The event is expected to showcase 30 top-rated tourist sites and areas in Vietnam, which have maritime tourism potential, and hundreds of travel agencies in France, Europe and Vietnam.

The 2009 Vietnam Sea Festival is an opportunity for businesses to exchange information, seek business opportunities and advertise Vietnam’s tourism image.

Also on the occasion, Vietnam Airlines coordinated with tourist companies from France and Vietnam to create two special promotional programmes for French tourists visiting Vietnam from April 21 to June 19, and from August 21 to October 20, offering them a 25% reduction in prices.
