Wonders of Vietnam honoured by Google Arts and Culture
Google Arts & Culture launched Wonders of Vietnam—an online project featuring multiple highlights of Vietnam’s UNESCO heritage sites for the first time, including natural sites and tangible and intangible heritage. Completed in partnership with the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism, the Vietnam National Administration of Tourism, local tourism boards of Da Nang, Quang Nam, Thua Thien Hue and Quang Binh, National Geographic award-winning photographer Tran Tuan Viet and Oxalis Adventure, the new project aims to capture and preserve the beauty of Vietnam for audiences all over the world.
The online project features 35 exhibitions and 1,369 stunning pictures, bringing together a rich perspective of Vietnam for people to connect with during and beyond the pandemic. Highlights include exhibits about Son Doong Cave, the Hoi An Lantern Festival and Nha Nhac as well as interactive features that allow visitors to experience the wonders of Vietnam in a new way. People can explore highlights of the exhibit by colour, watch videos of sites set to traditional Vietnamese music or take a bird’s-eye view of famous sites through panoramic pictures. This project is an important part of Google’s overall support of the local tourism industry, which has been badly affected with travel restrictions because of the pandemic. By showcasing the wonders of Vietnam, specifically from the Central region, we hope to also raise awareness on preserving the sites affected.
