This year’s long Tet holidays have made for a busy tourism market.

This year, their sales are estimated to increase by 30% over the same time in 2018, with tours combining hotel bookings and entertainment tickets a big hit.

The most popular domestic destinations during the holiday include warm areas in the central and southern region such as Phu Quoc, Nha Trang, Da Nang and Hoi An.

This year, a large number of foreign tours have been booked, mostly to Japan, the Republic of Korea, Taiwan (China) and China, along with other destinations such as Thailand, Malaysia, Cambodia, Myanmar, Bhutan and India.

Vietravel Hanoi Vice Director Pham Van Bay said this year, the prices of tours have been kept unchanged or only increased slightly.

He said that since November 2018, the company has offered more than 300 domestic and foreign Tet tours to increase choices for customers.

Diverse promotion programmes have been offered by travel firms. Saigontourist has launched a “golden week” with VND10 million discounts for long tours abroad, or a reduction of VND500,000 for each customer for Tet tours.

Meanwhile, HanoiRedtours has designed special tours targeting youngsters and office workers with easy routes through famous destinations at home and abroad. At the same time, customers of Fiditour will receive total promotion value of up to VND4 million until January 25.

To ensure safety for travelers abroad, travel firms advised them to be well-prepared for their tours and strictly abide by the law of the host country and follow the guidance of tour guides.
