Ha Noi will celebrate its 1,000th anniversary and 56th Liberation Day on October 10, making it an ideal time for tourists to explore the city.
Sai Gon Tourist Company is offering typical tours to favourite destinations in the north including the Ha Noi-Autumn season, Ancient citadels of Viet Nam, Sa Pa and Ha Long in Autumn.
Annually, the HCM City-based travel agency organises seasonal tours – Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter – to tourism sites throughout the northern provinces.
But this year, the Ha Noi-Autumn season is seen as the most attractive programme as it coincides with the city’s millennium celebrations.
“We hope tourists will have more chances to witness numerous cultural festivities in Ha Noi during autumn. It’s a special time,” said a marketing staff of the company, Hoang Thuy Linh.
“The Ha Noi-Autumn programme has hosted around 12,000 tourists since early this year and hundreds of foreigners have flocked to the city this season,” Linh added.
She also said the capital had lured tourists with the season of fruits, com (young sticky rice) flake and cool weather.
