Google Arts and Culture recently has introduced a special project. They used the virtual technology to duplicate Vietnamese Wonders.
With beautiful beaches, green sightseeing, diverse cuisine, and dynamic culture setting, Vietnam has been able to convince foreign visitors and please them. In only a year 2019, Vietnam has welcomed about 18 millions foreign visitors. Sadly, that number is decently different right now. And it is one of the reason why duplicating Vietnamese Wonders project of Google Arts and Culture is more meaningful.
Before the global pandemic, Google Arts and Cultures has accompanied the Departments of Culture, Sport and Tourism of Quang Binh, Quang Nam, Thua Thien Hue and Da Nang and the photographer winning several awards of National Geographic Tran Tuan Viet to record the most beautiful shots of Vietnam. And these sources of photos and videos are the main “ingredient” for this project of Google Arts and Culture.
