Vietnamese workers will enjoy four days off work during this year's National Day celebrations which start on September 1, a period of time which is anticipated to create a golden chance for the local tourism sector to attract holidaymakers.
Tour operators report that amid the arrival of autumn, marine tourism is no longer the favourite type of trip enjoyed by holidaymakers. Instead, people are keen to explore scenic spots in mountainous destinations throughout the north and Central Highland regions.
Anticipating this trend, Flamingo Redtours has launched tours to ripening rice fields and cloud-hunting spots around northern and north-western localities. Vu Thi Bich Hue, head of the Communication and Marketing Service of Flamingo Redtours, says her firm has introduced a Ba Be - Cao Bang tour, a Hoang Su Phi - Xin Man - Ha Giang tour, and a Y Ty - Muong Hum - Lung Po - Sapa tour, all of which last three days each.
The tour operators have also launched tours of the Northwest mountains for visitors to come and watch the ripening rice season and explore the distinctive culture of highland ethnic minorities. Pham Van Bay, deputy director of Vietravel Hanoi, shares the firm aims to serve approximately 90,000 visitors in the autumn - winter season this year, including roughly 10,000 during the upcoming National Day holiday.
Currently, picturesque terraced paddy fields in northern highland localities such as Ha Giang, Sa Pa, and Moc Chau are ripening, proving ideal destinations for travelers. Vietravel is therefore offering a tour of O Quy Ho, one of the four most magnificent passes in Vietnam, as well as another tour of Y Ty - Muong Hum - Sa Pa- Hoang Su Phi - Xin Man to hunt for clouds and view the ripening rice fields.
Trekking is proving another favourite service among holidaymakers ahead of the National Day holiday. Tran Trung Kien, director of Umove Trekking, reveals the number of bookings for trekking tours during the upcoming holiday has increased by 35% compared to the early summer period.
Short trekking tours remain popular during this occasion, such as those to Pu Mat National Park, Cuc Phuong National Park, Bai Tu Long National Park, and Vua Ba Mountain, says Kien.
Diverse entertainment programmes
Localities are also planning to organise a range of cultural and art entertainment schemes in order to attract more tourists during this period.
In Hanoi, amusement and entertainment centres are busy preparing facilities, human resources, and cultural programmes in a bid to serve visitors. Bao Son Paradise Park will organise the Boho Festival, a ritual of the Bohemia culture in central Europe, and introduce the 1,000m2 Baoson VR Game Park, the largest virtual reality amusement park throughout the north.
In Sa Pa, the upland resort city will organise the 2022 Autumn Festival until September 11 to introduce distinctive cultures of various ethnic groups and local specialties. All eyes will therefore be on art programmes and cake making contests which will be held at the Sun World Fansipan Legend tourist area.
Da Nang, a tourism hub in central Vietnam, has also developed a number of art and entertainment programmes as it seeks to lure holidaymakers. Among the programmes on offer are a beer festival in Ba Na Hills and magic shows at Sunworld Da Nang Wonders. Major tourist destinations such as Marble Mountains and Asia Park Da Nang will offer free admission as part of this occasion.
