The route was launched five months after Hanoi’s first double-decker Hanoi City Hop on-Hop off tour was put into operation in November 2018 by Hanoi Transportation Corporation (Transerco).
Both of the routes were suspended since early this year as part of Covid-19 prevention efforts.
Nguyen Tat Hieu, general director of Vietnam Sightseeing Joint Stock Company, said the firm would launch various tours to popular destinations in Hanoi with a cheaper price of just VND130,000 (USD5.65) per person until the year-end. Children aged between 6 and 11 have 25% off.
The promotion is a response by the company to the government’s second tourism promotion campaign this year, Hieu noted. Dtinews
