According to the records from the travel companies, up to this time, the tour selling plan has been completed 80-90%.

Mr. Nguyen Cong Hoan, Deputy General Director of Hanoi Redtours, said: "This year, due to the Death Anniversary of the Hung Kings is close to April 30th and May 1st Holiday, some groups of tourists also take more annual leave to combine these two holidays. Therefore, foreign tours to distant markets such as Europe, Australia, USA, Dubai, New Zealand which last for about ten days are quite interested and chosen to buy early. At present, the company has "closed" with long-day tours while short-day tours are also almost sold.

Just like last year, foreign tours to the near markets such as East - South Asia, East - North Asia are still the trend of the holiday season this year. Besides the traditional tours to Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore, Myanmar with the price of less than ten million VND, the destinations attracting the special attention and interest from the tourists this year are Japan, South Korea, Taiwan (China) with the price ranging from 14 to 20 million VND for 5 days. According to some travel companies, thanks to the tour stimulation activities and more favorable visa policy, the tours to these countries became more attractive.

The holiday season this year coincides with the 10th Hue Festival with the topic of “Cultural Heritages with Integration and Development - Hue: One destination, Five Heritages”, The Da Nang International Fireworks Festival with the theme of The Legend of Bridges; therefore tours to Hue, Da Nang are especially attractive to tourists.
