In the central region, Hue, Da Nang and Hoi An are among top choices. Particularly, visitors can enjoy a heritage train tour connecting the three destinations and admire the natural beauty along the route passing through the Hai Van Pass, which was named among the 10 most beautiful drives in the world.

Many travel firms have made use of railways for their tours in 2024 to provide new experience for domestic tourists with a reasonable price amid high air fares.

Meanwhile, many tourists choose outbound tours. A representative from Saigontourist said that the firm has coordinated with Vietnam Airlines to build more than 200 tours, expecting to serve more than 110,000 visitors, of whom nearly 60% choose outbound tours.

Pham Van Thuy, Vice Director of the Vietnam National Authority of Tourism (VNAT) under the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism, the industry has designed plans to roll out comprehensive measures to attract visitors and meet the diverse demands of domestic and international travelers, while renovating methods and contents of tourism promotion.

At the Vietnam International Travel Mart (VITM) 2024 that took place from April 11-14 in Hanoi, tour operators offered more than 10,000 tours and tourism products with attractive promotion during the five-day holidays and upcoming summer. At the event, Vietnam Airlines offered 10,500 seats for the peak tourism season./.
