There were a series of activities at the programme, such as the introduction of destinations, information and new tourism products, a tourism stimulus programme of green heritage land, festivals in Quang Nam, Da Nang, and Thua Thien-Hue, especially with a focus on the in-depth promotion of products suitable to the tastes of Taiwanese (Chinese) tourists.

The programme also included the space to show movies and images of the culture, tourism, and specialty products of these three Vietnamese localities.

In addition, a space for the B2B (business-to-business) was built to promote bilateral exchange of visitors between the parties.

Reportedly, in the first 5 months of 2024, Viet Nam welcomed nearly 530,000 visitors from Taiwan (China), an increase of 110.1 % from the same period last year, about 45% of whom went to tourist destinations in Central Viet Nam such as Hue, Hoi An (Quang Nam) and Da Nang.
