Under the agreement, a 30-second video featuring the beauty of the province will be screened on BBC World News’s Asia-Pacific channel daily at intervals at 9:30 am – 5 pm and 5 pm – 7 pm between April 8 and June 2 with a total of 150 spots.

The city will appear on the channel as an attractive destination with blue sea, white sand and golden sunshine through interesting tours.

The strategy is aimed to lure more travellers to the province after Covid-19 is brought under control in Vietnam.
