The HCM City Department of Tourism will launch nine city tours with incentive prices for students and workers in an effort to encourage domestic tourism.

As part of the city’s tourism stimulus programme, the new tours include attractions in the city’s downtown, and Can Gio and Cu Chi districts.

Nguyen Thi Anh Hoa, deputy director of the city’s Department of Tourism, said the new low-cost city tours aimed to encourage students to learn more about the culture and history of the city as well as promote the city as a friendly, safe and exciting tourist destination.

Despite low prices, service quality of the tours remained unchanged, Hoa said.

Since the tourism stimulus programme was launched in November 2018, it has attracted more than 3,000 visitors, with foreign travelers accounting for 70 percent, she said.

Twenty-one travel firms and nearly 50 travel services providers have participated in the programme.
