Preparing for the great holidays of April 30th and May 1st this year, many travel agencies have designed and introduced a variety of tours to meet the travel needs of domestic tourists, focusing on sea and island destinations. Such as Saigontourism built a series of Phan Thiet tours of 2 days - 1 night, or 3 days - 2 nights departing from Ho Chi Minh City with the desire to bring tourists meaningful tours and vacations in this coastal city... Meanwhile, VN TOUR Tourism selectively designs and suggests visitors participate in the Phan Thiet tour program with 3 days - 2 nights according to the schedule: Ho Chi Minh - Ta Cu tourist area - Mui Ne (day 1), Bau Sen - Bau Trang - Wind power field (day 2), Pink Sand Dunes - Ho Chi Minh (day 3). As for INTOUR, building a travel program for the upcoming holidays also introduces a 3-day - 2-night Phan Thiet tour that takes tourists to experience and relax in the land associated with the outstanding image of "Blue Sea - White Sand". - Golden sunshine".

Especially, the Phu Quy tour- an emerging destination of Binh Thuan that is very attractive. There some information says that express ships transporting passengers from Phan Thiet to the island on the holiday of April 30th - May 1st have been approved to book in advance. Along with that, all accommodation establishments on the small island that maintain the wild and poetic features have also begun to prepare conditions to thoughtfully serve thousands of tourists heading to Phu Quy every day at this time... Ms. Quynh Nhu in Thu Duc City (Ho Chi Minh City) has never come to the "Pearl Island" of Binh Thuan, therefore, she hopes to proactively arrange a time with her friends to explore this place, unless she will travel alone by registering tours from travel agencies. Through research, there are currently many tours organized on the occasion of April 30th - May 1st, 2024 with attractive schedules such as the Phu Quy tour design (3 days - 3 nights) departing from Ho Chi Minh and the Phu Quy tour on April 30th. Although it's only 2 days - 2 nights tour, it has enough time for visitors to experience Ganh Hang, save photos at the Island Sovereignty Flagpole, Doc Phuot - Valley of Love, conquer Cao Cat mountain - Linh Son pagoda, visit Dinh Thay cape...

With the attraction of marine-island tourism, Binh Thuan destination is expected to win a great "triumph" in terms of the visitors' quantities and revenue in the approaching holiday and continue forward to the peak time in the summer of 2024.
