Recently, the VNAT's Tourism Information Centre debuted the first 2023 video clip "Golf Tourism – Enjoying every moment” in a media campaign entitled "Vietnam: Travel to Love", introducing visitors to the wonderful experiences of golf tourism – a popular trend with outstanding potential in Vietnam.
Vietnam has been honoured by the World Golf Awards as “Asia’s Best Golf Destination” six times in a row. With a series of high-class and high-quality golf courses of international standards, Vietnam is confident to bring visitors to unique and challenging golf courses.
