HCM City — Some 30 HCM City tour operators have joined hands with the railway to organise tours to the central coastal provinces of Bình Thuận, Khánh Hoà, Phú Yên, and Bình Định during the National Day holiday on September 2.
Nguyễn Thị Khánh, deputy chairwoman of the HCM City Tourism Association, said they would arrange train tours through the rest of the year. They can organise tours for travellers to go by train from HCM City and return by air, or vice versa.
