The Booth of St. Petersburg impresses visitors with attractive images of tourist destinations, as well as artistic performances by Russian artists. St. Petersburg also organizes trade activities and connects businesses in Vietnam to build tourist routes to St. Petersburg, as well as several other destinations in Russia.

St. Petersburg continues to develop as a gastronomic capital, attracting culinary enthusiasts and becoming an important destination for gastronomic tourism. The city offers visitors the unique opportunity to experience the culture and history of the city through its cuisine.

At the ITE HCMC 2023, St. Petersburg and representatives of the city's tourism industry introduced four-season tourism opportunities in Russia's northern destinations, from traditional tours to new destinations. In addition, many promising types of tourism are being developed in St. Petersburg, such as industrial, scientific and educational tourism, medical and event tourism.

Currently, the airlines of the two countries, with the active support of the city, are making efforts to negotiate to deploy regular and charter flights to Vietnam. This is expected to contribute significantly to increasing tourist flows and facilitating visitors to St. Petersburg.
