Many travel agencies, such as Ha Noi Redtour and Saigontourist, have unveiled their promotion programmes designed for the upcoming Vietnam International Travel Mart 2017 (VITM 2017), which is scheduled to take place in Ha Noi between April 6 and 9.

Ha Noi Redtour deputy general director Nguyen Cong Hoan said the company plans to offer discounts on tours on longer routes besides those to popular destinations, in a bid to enable customers to access these high-end services at affordable prices.

Saigontourist, meanwhile, will offer gifts and coupons worth up to 5 billion VND (220,000 USD) at their stall and introduce a new tour to discover the film set of “Kong: Skull Island” in Ninh Binh and Ha Long.

Vietravel announced that it will present 40 summer and autumn tours, with discounts of up to 35 percent for domestic trips and 20 million VND (880 USD) for tours to overseas destinations.

Organisers of the VITM said there will be more than 150,000 low-cost air tickets and 15,000 package tours at good prices at the fair.

The VITM 2017, the fifth of its kind, will feature 450 booths from 652 tourism companies and promotion agencies. The event is expected to welcome about 60,000 visitors.

As part of the event, an international street food festival will also be held, while the Viet Nam National Tourism Association will officially inaugurate a centre for Vietnamese cuisine study, preservation and development on April 7.
