The contest aimed to exploit, utilize, and promote the existing tourism value of District 3.

According to Le Truong Hien Hoa, deputy director of the Ho Chi Minh City Department of Tourism, the city’s tourism industry is recovering strongly and District 3 is among those with potential tourism resources.
