“Vietnam Airlines, Vietjet Air and Bamboo Airways said they would have discount programmes at the festival. Many other firms have also planned attractive offers and products. Vietjet Air offers a three-day-two-night trip to HCM City for VND990,000. Hanoitourist opened a self-drive tour to the northwest region,” Giang said.

Many other discounted tour packages will be offered at the festival such as 15% discounted tickets to Huong Pagoda. New tours to historical sites in Hanoi or to Ninh Binh, Quang Ninh and Lao Cai have also received a warm reception.

Over 200 firms are estimated to attend the festival along with the representatives from various provinces and cities who want to promote their own localities.
