Nha Trang – Khanh Hoa expecting tourists on Tet

The lunar new year is coming. Khanh Hoa tourism businesses are making effort to attract tourists.
 
According to Vietravel, this year, the number of tourists booking tours to Nha Trang - Khanh Hoa is quite small, although the company has offered many promotions. Tran Minh Duc - Deputy Director of Long Phu Tourist Joint Stock Company, Chairman of Khanh Hoa Travel Association said, “Although the tour prices have decreased by about 30% year-on-year, the number of tourists booking tour to Khanh Hoa for the coming lunar new year only reached about 40% over the previous year. Some partners are looking to book tours. The company hopes that in the coming days, the number of tourists booking Tet holiday tour in Khanh Hoa will increase ”.
 
Due to the Covid-19 epidemic, when tourists are more careful in choosing their destination, the number of tourists traveling by their vehicles also increases. Grasping that trend, many tour operators have been more flexible in organizing services to attract tourists to the province. In addition to selling package tours, many businesses also offer basic service packages (air tickets, shuttle buses and accommodation rooms). Nguyen Phi Hong Nguyen - Sales Director of Viet Promotion Co., Ltd. said that guests mainly book rooms at Vinpearl and resorts in the northern Cam Ranh peninsula tourist area while hotels in the city have received few bookings.

So far, the number of available rooms in hotels in Nha Trang is quite large. A representative of Sheraton Nha Trang hotel said that in previous years, the hotel room capacity was up to 80%, but now the figure is only 30%, although the room rate is not equal to the normal price before the Covid-19 outbreak. Le Ba Tai - General Manager of Green World Hotel also said that the hotel offers 600,000 VND/night, but the number of guests booking for the lunar new year is just over 20%. Similarly, room booking in hotels like  Yasaka-Saigon-Nhatrang, Muong Thanh Khanh Hoa, etc. is also very low.
 
Nguyen Thi Le Thanh - Deputy Director of the Department of Tourism said, the Department of Tourism has sent a document to tourism businesses to actively organize events, innovate and improve service quality, entertainment activities to welcome and serve visitors, supply information about activities and events for the department to be popularized.
 
Khanh Hoa tourism is making effort to attract tourists. In addition to the New Year decoration, hotels and resorts also organize more activities for guests to entertain such as buffets to celebrate lunar new year, lion dance, lucky money, calligraphy, discounts on spa services, food, etc. For example, Hon Tam tourist resort offers free of charge to mud bath, massage services for guests; Sheraton Nha Trang hotel discounts 50% for spa services...
 
On this occasion, Long Phu Tourist Joint Stock Company will add a kayak tour of the mangrove forest, check-in 175m long bridge across the forest, and many other interesting entertainment services to serve tourists. Along with the magnificent Tata Show, Vinwonders Nha Trang also organizes music program to welcome the spring, flashmob show, etc.
 
This year, tourists tend to book a Tet tour late because they do not worry about room when there are no international visitors. Currently, businesses in Khanh Hoa continue to carry out promotional activities as well as increase communication and promotion to attract customers.
