Following Tet last month many travel firms in HCM City are offering steep discounts to attract domestic tourists, especially those touring by air to the central and northern regions.
Viet Media Travel said since this is the low season the firm is joining hands with airlines and service companies to offer discounts of up to 30 per cent on these tours.
Its five-day tour to central Viet Nam is now priced at VND5-6 million instead of the normal VND8-9 million, while a five-day tour of Ha Noi, Ha Long, and Sa Pa now costs VND7-8 million compared to the usual VND12 million.
Vietravel is offering discounts of 45 per cent on tours to Phu Yen, Kien Giang-Cambodia, Da Lat, and Nha Trang as well as to the northern and central regions.
Saigontourist Travel Service Company offers a 40 per cent discount for customers buying tours and staying in its hotels.
Others such as Lien Bang Travelink and Fiditourist have also launched promotional programmes though with lesser discounts. — VNS
