Within the framework of the ASEAN Tourism Forum (ATF) 2019 taking place in Ha Long city, on January 16 the Vietnam National Administration of Tourism (VNAT) cooperated with the Vietnam Post and Telecommunications Group (VNPT) to introduce a tourism app for smartphones called VietNamGo.

VietNamGo is the official app of Vietnamese tourism and supervised by VNAT, with features including travel information handbooks on transport, climate, prominent destinations, and food at destinations such as Hanoi, Da Nang, Hue, Lao Cai, Ninh Binh, Phu Quoc Island, and Ho Chi Minh City. The app is in English and Vietnamese and supports modern technologies such as 360-degree photos and 3D and VR tours.

According to Mr. Ngo Dien Hy, General Manager of the VNPT-IT Company, the app has already been introduced in 27 cities and provinces nationwide.

“VietNamGo is a national application for tourism and will help to connect tourism data within cities and provinces,” he said. “Through city and provincial departments of culture, sports and tourism, tourism figures will be updated and made public on the app. Understanding the importance of technology is behind VNPT joining hands with VNAT.”

It is expected that more information on tourist destinations and additional languages such as Chinese, Russian and Korean will be added to VietNamGo this year. Other smart utilities will include information on restaurants, hotels, traffic, digital maps, audio guides, 360-degree videos, 3D, VR / AR, and data integration for data analysis.
