An estimated 250,000 visitors arrived at the festival to look for good deals offered by more than 40 travel companies. The companies offered nearly 70,000 domestic and overseas tour packages with discounts from 20 to 50 percent.

Some airlines such as Vietnam Airlines and Bamboo Airways also offer discounted tickets for routes departing from the city.

In the framework of the festival, several events were held such as a forum on Vietnam’s tourism human resources, a ceremony to honour 100 leading tourism brands and an exchange programme on high-tech application in tourism.

The Ho Chi Minh City tourism festival is held annually in April, creating an excellent opportunity for travel companies to promote tours among visitors in the city and neighbouring localities.

In 2018, Ho Chi Minh City welcomed 36.5 million visitors, including 7.5 million foreigners, a year-on-year rise of 17.83 percent. The city aims to serve 8.5 foreign visitors in 2019, up 14 percent against the previous year.
