Stalls run by Tokyo, Kuala Lumpur, Taipei, Manila, Jakarta, and Hanoi, feature images on their local charms and cultural-experience activities. Air tickets with attracting prices to these locations are also on offer.

Speaking at the opening ceremony, President of the CPTA Yuji Fujita said CPTA members gather on an annual basis to put forth ideas and conduct tourism promotion activities together.

He hoped Hanoi residents and tourists to the event can find useful information on the destinations they are looking forward to visit.
