Prices for 4-5 day package tours to central provinces have fallen to 2.2-4.6 million VND (97-202 USD) per person. Travel companies have also stabilised prices for foreign tours and offered deals for budget travellers.

To meet increasing demand, Fiditour has opened new tours to Quy Nhon-Phu Yen, bringing vacationers to new tourist attractions like Ky Co- touted as Vietnam’s Maldives, Hon Kho (Dry island) and Eo Gio (wind strait).
It also offers new packages to visit lavender fields in Hokkaido (Japan), discover life in North Korea and experience nomadic culture in Mongolia.
