Ngo Minh 16:14, 2023/10/06
The audiovisual material showcases the architecture and lifestyle in Hanoi, the capital with more than 1,000 years of history, and Ninh Binh, known as Ha Long Bay on land.

Hanoi Opera House, St. Joseph's Cathedral, and Hanoi Museum are featured in the video produced by the ASEAN-Korea Center.

Entitled "Cultural and Architectural Tour", the video promotes Vietnamese tourism focusing on the architecture, cuisine and lifestyle of Hanoi, a capital city with a rich history of over a millennium, and the northern province of Ninh Binh, a place called Ha Long Bay on land.

Tourists are advised to visit Phat Diem Cathedral and Bai Dinh Pagoda in Ninh Binh Province, as both are a distinctive fusion of historical imposing style, contemporary sustainable architecture and European design. A boat ride on the lyrical rivers is highly recommended to appreciate the serene landscape of Ninh Binh.

Since December last year, the ASEAN-Korea Center has produced audiovisual materials to promote tourist sites in Southeast Asian countries.

The masterfully crafted frames of the video introduce viewers to the cultural and tourism facets of ASEAN and the drive for tourism cooperation between ASEAN and South Korea.

This year's materials focus on inviting viewers to a virtual trip to the architecture and lifestyle of Vietnam, Cambodia, and Indonesia.

Each video consists of a 5-minute introduction to the architecture of two cities in each country, selected by the ASEAN-Korea Center and the respective tourism organization, with a 1-minute soundbite by Korean architectural designer and writer Oh Young-wook.

The ASEAN-Korea Center will release promotional videos for Brunei, Laos and Myanmar in 2024, culminating the "Cultural and Architectural Tour" video series covering all 10 ASEAN nations.
