HCM CITY — Young Vietnamese are increasingly choosing overseas tours during holidays since prices are getting lower.
Just two or three years ago a tour of South Korea cost VNĐ20 million (US$857) or more and the cheapest tour to Japan was VNĐ30 million.
Now tours to South Korea, Taiwan, Japan, and the Chinese mainland cost just a little more than to Southeast Asian countries, the manager of a travel company in HCM City said.
A five-day tour to South Korea costs VNĐ11.5-12 million while a four-day trip to Japan costs VNĐ21-22 million.
Some travel firms even offer low-cost tours to South Korea and Taiwan at a mere VNĐ8-9 million. — VNS
