More customers are booking tours during Liberation Day (April 30) and May Day thanks to discounts and promotions.
Vietravel said there is a flat discount of VND2 million for tours to the north, VND1 million for central provinces, and VND500,000 for coastal destinations like Phu Quoc and Nha Trang.
Vitour has rolled out a programme called "Central Paradise" targeting people who want to travel to ecological spots in the central region such as Ba Na, Bach Ma, and Cu Lao Cham Island. Cao Tri Dung, deputy director of Vitour, said the programme has become popular.
Doan Thi Thanh Tra, marketing director of Saigontourist Travel Service Co, said the number of bookings for outbound tours has been rising significantly since Saigontourist offered more than 50 low-priced overseas tours for the holidays. The company hopes to sell 15,000-16,000 tours during the four-day holiday.-VNS
