Hundreds of low-cost tours, travel vouchers, and discounted tourism services are on sale at the Ho Chi Minh City Tourism Festival in 2023, which kicked off at September 23 Park in District 1 on Thursday.

The four-day festival features 120 booths with vendors touting promotional tourism programs and products to both domestic and foreign visitors.

The aim of the festival is to boost tourism connectivity and contribute to the country’s economic growth, according to the Ho Chi Minh City Department of Tourism.

Among the promotional packages on sale at the fest are domestic tours offered by local travel firm Saigontourist, which are being offered at discounts of up to 30 percent.

Aside from its domestic tours, Saigontourist is also offering international tours at steep discounts.

Other promotions at the festival include discounts on one-day city tours, double-decker bus tours, water puppet tour tickets, and trips to popular tourism destinations across the country.

Nguyen Nguyet Van Khanh, marketing director of Vietravel, said that customers who buy tours and complete their payments within 24 hours will receive rebates of up to VND2 million ($85.8).
