HCMC - In celebration of the upcoming Lunar New Year holiday (Tet) early next month, Saigontourist Travel Service Company has launched more than 300 domestic and outbound tour programs.

Aside from familiar Tet tours, the affiliate of Saigontourist Holding Company has some new tours on offer. Guests can choose tours to Tra Vinh and Vinh Long provinces in the Mekong Delta, Ho Dynasty Citadel in Thanh Hoa Province, Cape Sa Vi – the northeastern-most point of Vietnam, Cau Vang (Golden Bridge) in Danang City, or Phu Tho Province – the hometown of Hung Kings, the founders of the country.

In Phu Tho Province, tourists will visit Nghia Linh Mountain, Ha-Trung-Thuong temples, Hung Kings’ tombs, and Ngoc water well, among others.

Cape Sa Vi in Mong Cai City, Quang Ninh Province is a highlight of the tour to the northeastern region. Meanwhile, the northwestern tours will take tourists to the Lung Po flagpole in Lao Cai Province, from which they can see the point where the Red River enters Vietnam.

The tour that can take in Thanh Hoa, Nghe An and Ha Tinh provinces will enable guests to explore Vietnam’s history through visits to historic relics such as King Le Thai To’s tomb, Lam Kinh historic site, and Ho Dynasty Citadel, which was built in the 14th century and has been recognized as the world cultural heritage by the UNESCO.

The new Mekong Delta tour takes tourists to Tra Vinh and Vinh Long provinces, where they will stay at the newly-opened four-star Saigon-Vinh Long Hotel. During the tour, tourists will visit the Khmer Culture Museum which showcases artifacts on the life of Khmer people and traditional Khmer dance shows, and Khmer pagodas with unique architecture. One of the most well-known pagodas in Tra Vinh Province is the ancient pagoda of Vam Rai, which boasts a 54-meter-long Buddha statue.
