As well as grossing US$566 million, “Kong: Skull Island” showed Vietnam’s stunning landscapes to audiences around the world.
Vogt-Roberts told Linh Le, group managing director of Asia DMC, that he loves the food, people and culture.
“Vietnam has always been known as a cultural and culinary destination, and by shooting a major movie like ‘Kong: Skull Island’ there, Vietnam is now a cinematic destination too,” Le noted, referring to Vogt-Roberts as “an amazing ambassador for Vietnam”.
Le introduced the audience to destinations ranging from Hanoi, Halong Bay and Ninh Binh in the north to the central coast highlights of Danang, Hoi An and Hue and the southern charms of Ho Chi Minh City, Phu Quoc Island and the Mekong Delta.
