It analyses the current situation of regional tourism and identifies and assesses priority tourism products for connecting within the region. The map and the report in both Vietnamese and English can be found at http://esrt.vn/upload/bandoduyenhaimientrung.zip .

They will jointly set up a tourism website, a map and a handbook for the region, adopt a common slogan and logo, and build a common tourism database on the hotel market and projects calling for investment. Hue will focus more on the Chan May-Lang Co tourism site and more tourism services in rural areas and lagoons, taking advantage of the Huong River.

    French photographer Rehahn has recently opened his private museum on an area of 250 square metres in Hoi An ancient town to display photos of traditional costumes of ethnic minorities around Vietnam that he has taken over the last five years. Guests have the chance to experience and discover the different regions of Vietnam with Rehahn. He sees it as is his mission to bring the photos of ethnic people closer to Vietnamese people. His museum displays more than 200 photos of 40 of the 54 ethnic minorities in Vietnam, 30 traditional costumes from ethnic minorities, and precious objects, with his stories explaining his difficult journeys to approach remote villages of ethnic minorities translated in French, English and Vietnamese. One of his most exciting stories is that he had to wait for three years to be allowed into the village of one ethnic minority where tourists never visit. The museum is open daily, from 8.30am to 8.30pm. Free entry.
