Accordingly, a meeting between the province’s representatives and film producers, directors, actors and media groups; and a screening of a video clip introducing Quang Binh’s landscapes will be held in a Hollywood cinema on January 23.
The province will also join the New York Times Travel Show in New York from January 25-27 to present the world’s largest cave system Son Doong to international visitors. The provincial government then will invite Hollywood producers, scriptwriters, directors and actors to Quang Binh for sightseeing.
It is the fist time a Vietnamese province will have a chance to introduce its images to the world’s movie capital, with the goal of attracting more tourists to Vietnam and Quang Binh particularly.
After the blockbuster “Kong: Skull Island” hitting the big screen, domestic and foreign travel companies have simultaneously launched tours to Vietnam, where many scenes were filmed. 
Many tourism enterprises in the country have received hundreds of phone calls from visitors looking for tours of famous film locations in the King Kong movie, such as Ha Long Bay in Quang Ninh province, Van Long Natural Reserve and Trang An Complex in Ninh Binh, and the Phong Nha-Ke Bang National Park in Quang Binh province.
The release of the Hollywood movie is an opportunity to promote Vietnamese beauty to the world. The film’s director, Jordan Charles Vogt-Roberts was then appointed as tourism ambassador of Vietnam in the 2017-2020 tenure.
