Dozens of provinces will join a tourism stimulus programme initiated by the HCM City Tourism Association to boost travel demand.
Nguyen Thi Khanh, deputy chairwoman of the association, said that the Tourism Association of the Cuu Long (Mekong) Delta and travel firms and hotels in 12 provinces and cities have promised to reduce prices by around 30 per cent.
Thua Thien-Hue, Nghe An, and Binh Thuan Provinces and Da Nang will also join.
Given the large-scale participation, the prices of domestic tours announced earlier by the HCM City Tourism Association and Viet Nam Airlines can be cut by a further 30 per cent. — VNS
