The contest is open for entries until October 30. Vietnamese and foreigners are eligible to enter the contest on Facebook page Vietnamtourismboard.

The contest is the first of a series of activities to be held under the banner #VietnamNOW.

Travellers can find inspiration and information about Vietnam. Followers of the campaign on Facebook and Instagram can look forward to monthly giveaways with prizes from top Vietnamese brands.

Launched by the Vietnam National Administration of Tourism (VNAT), in collaboration with the Vietnam Tourism Advisory Board (TAB), the campaign aims to tell inspiring stories of Vietnamese tourism, and provide information about the country's renowned natural beauty and rich historical and cultural attractions, and experiences shared by international travellers from around the world.

Events such as festivals, marathons and the Formula One race in Hanoi next year will be put in the spotlight to build awareness of Vietnam’s diverse tourism assets.

The campaign will debut at the World Travel Market in London in November to attract more tourists from the UK.

VNAT will also launch a series of five #VietnamNOW videos showcasing the best destinations, and an “I Wish I Was in #VietnamNOW” contest to win free flights to Vietnam, as well as downloadable guides for first-time travellers to the country.
