Demand for outbound tours for the coming Tet Lunar New Year Holiday is sharply increasing.

Tran Thi Bao Thu, Marketing and Communications Director of Vietluxtour, said her company had seen a rise in outbound tour bookings for Tet, particularly to northern Asian markets.

Tran Phuong Linh, Marketing Manager from Ben Thanh Tourist, said the seven-day Tet holiday gave people more opportunities to travel abroad. China, Taiwan, Japan and South Korea were expected to be the most popular destinations for Vietnamese, followed by tours to Europe and Thailand, Singapore, Indonesia and Cambodia.

Ben Thanh Tourist's Tet tours have seen a 5-10 percent increase compared to normal, with roughly the same sales as last Tet. Outbound tour prices range from VND4.25 million (USD173.41) to VND125 million. Meanwhile, inbound tours are being sold at VND990,000-14 million each.

Travel firms have worked with airlines and their partners to secure attractive tourist prices.

According to Thu, domestic tours need to sharpen their competitiveness by offering cheaper airfares and improving the quality of services.

HCM City is organising a tourism week to launch various discount programmes. The event is scheduled to end on December 10.
