The Vietnam National Administration of Tourism (VNAT) developed a special email system as part of efforts aimed at promoting Vietnamese tourism at https://mail.vietnam.travel.
This marks the first time that the local tourism industry has set up an email system in order to serve tourism promotion activities. The purpose of the move is to enhance digital transformation in the tourism sector, with a greater focus placed on building tools and applications in a bid to increase travel experience.
So far, the Vietnamese tourism industry has adopted the email system in a bid to promote tourism and to serve the state management, https://mail.vietnamtourism.gov.vn/, as a contribution to gradually completing the transactional email system in the tourism industry.
