Some of the world's best beaches are set to be showcased at an international fair in Vietnam to promote maritime tourism.
Holidaymakers who've taken specialist tours in Vietnam will already be aware of what the country's seaside resorts and 3,000km coastline have to offer.
But the first International Tourism Fair of Vietnam Sea 2013, planned for early next June in Nha Trang City in Khan Hao province, will give them a further boost.
Vietnam's top beaches include Non Nuoc in Danang, voted one of the planet's most charming beaches by Forbes Magazine in 2005, Long Bay in Quang Ninh province, which has been dubbed one of the world's seven wonders, and Lang Co Bay in Thua Thien Hue.
Meanwhile Nha Trang, the capital of Khanh Hoa province in southwest Vietnam, is famous for its unspoilt beaches and superb scuba diving. The city has hosted Miss Universe and Miss Earth events over the past few years.
The planned tourism fair, which needs final approval from Vietnam's Ministry of Culture, Sport and Tourism, is expected to feature 250 booths, with 30% set to be allocated to foreign tourist organisations and travel firms.
