HA NOI (VNS) — Many travel agencies have said their domestic and international tours for the upcoming Lunar New Year Holiday are nearly fully booked. Bookings were up at least 10 per cent over last Tet.
Tour operators said customers prefer short trips to coastal destinations such as Phan Thiet, Nha Trang and other sites in central Viet Nam. Package tours to Phu Quoc Island have sold out.
As for outbound tours, trips to Japan and South Korea have been booked by more people for Tet, while there has not been significant growth in bookings for tours to Thailand, Malaysia and Singapore. More families and group of guests have booked hotel rooms, restaurants and shuttle services to and from airports and hired tour guides rather than buying package tours this year. — VNS
