CNN sends film makers to capture Vietnam’s beauty

 
   

A CNN crew from Singapore will arrive in Vietnam Friday to shoot a promotional film on local tourism.

It will film in several places including old towns and a clutch of museums, and shoot Vietnamese chefs in action in Hanoi.

The filmmakers then go to Ha Long Bay, a UNESCO World Heritage site, to capture the breathtaking beauty of the limestone cliffs jutting out of the ocean.

Pham Huu Minh, head of the Vietnam National Administration of Tourism, said more than US$260,000 had been earmarked for showcasing the country’s landscapes and friendly people on the American channel.

CNN will show a 30-second film clip daily at prime time for three months starting October.
