The programme aims to attract more international and domestic tourists to the province, contributing to tourism business activities that will help achieve the year's social-economic targets.

The province's tourism attractions and businesses, including accommodations, travel agencies, transportation services, dining and shopping businesses will participate in the campaign. Airlines and social media influencers will also work to stimulate tourism in Quảng Nam.

The campaign's eco-tourism products and tours will highlight the natural beauty of Quảng Nam's mountains, forests, islands, and coastlines, alongside the province's well-established tourist sightseeing spots such as Hội An Ancient Town, the Mỹ Sơn Sanctuary, Chàm Island, the Trà Quế vegetable village and the Bảy Mẫu coconut forest.

In addition to domestic tourists, the programme will target new visitors from key international markets such as South Korea, China, Taiwan, Japan, Australia, Southeast Asia, India, the USA and Europe.

The program also intends to increase MICE (Meetings, Incentives, Conferences and Exhibitions) offerings to attract more business travelers to the province.

The OCOP (One Commune One Product) tourism product and the all-inclusive Free and Easy package, which includes flight tickets and accommodation in luxury hotels and tickets to sightseeing spots, will also attract more tourists to the province.
