Le Vietnam : une destination touristique kitsch ? Exemple de la station climatique : Dalat

Abstract : In 1995, the American administration under B. Clinton officially ended trade embargoand removed the economic blockage with Vietnam. As of this major key point, the countrybecame a new destination to discover, attracting tourists worldwide. The beauty of its diverselandscapes, the culinary art and the hospitality of the local community were the mainadvantages that helped Vietnam to develop its tourism sector. More than two decades later,when observing the current tourism activities of the country, we realize that the abovementioned three are no longer as authentic as they were at the beginning. They are artificialized,mixed and “exotized” to meet the diverse demands of domestic tourists.This context urged us to conduct the present research attempting to understand how,why and in which way(s) the Kitsch was able to gradually immerse in the daily life and in theminds of Vietnamese people. It currently becomes a social phenomenon amplified by the mediaand the social networks. The use of Kitsch is considered as a soft remedy that the Communistgovernance applies to relieve the damage caused during the decades of wars. However, on thelong term, will it still be an effective tool in the tourism development of the destination Vietnamin general, and of the climatic health resort of Dalat – our case study – in particular?
