About 1,500 Vietnamese, including overseas Vietnamese, have booked Lunar New Year or Tet tours with Saigontourist Travel Service Co. to take a closer look at pre-Tet activities around the country.
The tours, which take in the Cuu Long (Mekong) Delta and the central and northern regions, allow holiday makers to learn about Tet traditions in these regions.
Saigontourist has introduced some 20 tours to rural areas around the country to witness traditional Tet preparations such as flower farming and get a taste of villages making Tet specialities. The tour will end on January 22, New Year's Eve.
The tour operator has also sold Tet tours to some 500 foreign tourists. — VNS
