HCM CITY —  A two-day festival has started in Tao Đàn Park of HCM City to celebrate the joy of travel in Việt Nam with free entrance.

Organised by Holiday Inn Hotels & Resorts, the festival, on Friday and Saturday, has a series of pop-up activities designed to bring joy to guests and local residents.

On the first day of the two-day festival, the organiser’s colourful food trucks drive around the city, delivering free snacks to the young and young-at-heart. 

On the second day, there will be many games and entertainment including 50m downtown waterslides, a sport hub truck, mini car racing, a light-up dance mat, and live music performances for a chance to win amazing prizes. 

The festival is the perfect occasion for everyone to come together in a carnival atmosphere and make memories with friends and families, according to the organiser. 

“At Holiday Inn, our aim is to bring people together and celebrate the joy of travel. Our Joy Festivals in Việt Nam will reflect this upbeat spirit with a series of exciting activities. Following a challenging two years for the world, these pop-up events will hopefully raise some smiles and bring a renewed sense of optimism to local people,” said David Pearson, area director of sales and marketing, IHG Northern Vietnam.

The same programme will be organised from July 2 at Thống Nhất Park in Hà Nội. 

The Holiday Inn brand from IHG Hotels & Resorts has served hundreds of millions of guests worldwide during its nearly 70-year history and is one of the most recognised and trusted travel brands in the world. Holiday Inn currently operates two properties in Việt Nam. Holiday Inn & Suites Saigon Airport opened in September 2019 to mark this famous brand’s debut in the country. It was recently joined by Holiday Inn Resort Hồ Tràm Beach, which was launched in January 2022 on the southeast coast. VNS
