To wit, this is the first time the Asia - Pacific “International Tour Guide” contest will be held in Vietnam. It is aimed at young people from 15 to 24 years old living in the Asia–Pacific region. It will be an opportunity not only for young Vietnamese, but also for youths from abroad to exchange and learn.

The five most outstanding participants will receive:
- one gold prize worth 500 USD (equivalent with over 10 million VND),
- one silver prize worth 300 USD (equivalent with over 6 million VND),
- one bronze prize worth 200 USD (equivalent with over 4 million VND),

The Covid-19 pandemic had a heavy toll on the tourism sector, pushing a large number of tour guides to quit or find other jobs. The pandemic is now under control, however, and tourism is on its way to recovery, such that young people will be a promising source of workers for the sector in the future. This contest will bring young people closer to the work of tour guides and it will be an opportunity for them to advertise tourism in their countries and improve its image in the eyes of the world.
