TripAdvisor, one of the world’s largest travel site, has recently announced that they are launching a new local website in Vietnam.

Vietnamese travellers can now access traveller reviews and ratings on a localised TripAdvisor website, providing them with more relevant content to help them effectively research and plan their travel, as well as contribute reviews and opinions of their own.

We are excited to offer Vietnamese travellers their own version of TripAdvisor, providing them access to more localised content on the site,” said Barbara Messing, CMO TripAdvisor. “Vietnam is an important market for TripAdvisor in the Asia-Pacific region. With Vietnam becoming a popular tourist destination in its own right, a growing number of Vietnamese are travelling not only to neighbouring ASEAN countries but also internationally, and we see a great opportunity to service their travel planning needs.”
