The organising board has designated a specific topic for each month’s event, including ‘Hue – The Kingdom of Ao Dai’, ‘The most beautiful places to check-in in Hue’, ‘Hue – The city of festivals’, ‘Beautiful beaches in Hue’, ‘Traditional craft villages in Hue’, and ‘The land of Heritages’, among others.
The topics will be revealed at the beginning of each month via website http://visithue.vn. The organising board will present one first, one second and one third prize in each category each month, with a total cash prize of VND20,000 million.
The contest aims to promote the natural landscapes and cultural heritages of the province to domestic and foreign visitors, thus stimulating tourism demand after being badly affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.
