Ms. Nguyễn Thị Khánh, Deputy Chairwoman of Ho Chi Minh City Tourism Association, said that the VNR cooperated with the association to open the tour actively.
As expected, to operate package tours, the VNR is arranging carriages with 44 seats and suitable services to customers first. Then, the VNR sells open railway tickets which passengers from Ho Chi Minh City can choose date of departure and arrival to Binh Thuan, Nha Trang, Phu Yen and Binh Dinh provinces.
Thanks to discount offered by the VNR, tourism firms and these provinces which are invited by Ho Chi Minh City Tourism Association, the price of an expected package tour will be cheaper.
“We will announce a reduced price of a package tour after this FAM trip. This is the first time the VNR has cooperated with Ho Chi Minh City Tourism Association”, Ms. Khanh said.
The FAM trip, which takes place on 17th - 21st of October 2015, includes 40 tour operators, travel agencies, travel media in Ho Chi Minh City and the VNR.
