HCMC – “HCMC tourism week – The city I love” was held on December 24 by the HCMC Department of Tourism to introduce many new destinations to restore the tourism industry and support business to stimulate demand.
Phan Thi Thang, vice chairwoman of the HCMC People’s Committee, said tourism is a key economic sector of the city. Hence, tourism resumption is important not only for the tourism industry, but also to stimulate other industries to recover, especially the supply chain of goods and services.
At this tourism week, tourists can visit and experience new destinations such as exploring the city center (City tour), from the city center to the North West (especially Cu Chi and Hoc Mon District), to the East (especially Thu Duc City), to the South East (especially Nha Be, Can Gio), to the South (especially Binh Chanh District).
At the same time, many discount and promotion programs of HCMC tourism enterprises will also be deployed to stimulate tourism demand at the end of the year.
Nguyen Huy Y Yen, CEO of Saigontourist Travel and Service Company, said the company would diversify tours in Can Gio by serving guests by road and the seaway. The schedule of tours will allow tourists to visit forests, the seas and the Giong Chua mountain (the only mountain in HCMC).
The city tour will be adjusted to welcome foreign and domestic tourists and introduce ancient buildings reminiscent of HCMC’s history.
Leaders in HCMC asked the Department of Tourism to ensure all districts and Thu Duc City have at least one specific tourism product to attract more tourists and increase the attractiveness of destinations.
