After the Prime Minister recently approved a nine-day Tet holiday which will begin on January 28, local tourism companies said they expected good business during the period.

Doan Thi Thanh Tra, marketing and public relations manager for Saigontourist Travel Service Co., said customers had begun booking air tickets and would increase the number of tours for Tet.

Big companies will have no difficulty arranging services, but smaller enterprises are concerned about their limited capability, saying air tickets might fall short, meaning prices could rise. — VNS
