The Vietnamese Lunar New Year is around the corner. Artists and staff of the Furama Resort are in a "peak time" preparing the famous "Tet Village Market" which took place for 3 nights: 9th, 10th and 11th February 2018 (falling on 24th, 25th, and 26th December – Lunar Calendar) and the Tet Dinner Buffet.

Furama Resort Danang magically turned into a traditional Vietnamese market. The Furama Resort's staff created a true atmosphere at the International Convention Palace's garden area to present the scene of a classic Vietnam street food life to call in the Year of the Dog. A snapshot of Vietnamese rice-culture, bamboo plants, banana trees and especially food stalls were set up for visitors to stop by and enjoy square and cylinder formed glutinous rice cakes together with hot tea. Chefs introduced ginger, green squash, coconut, and sweet potatoes to make yummy jams attractive not only to the children. Bamboo dragon flies, silk lanterns, bamboo flutes, and bonsai were also available for gifts and home decoration. The popular fortune telling as well as calligraphy booths were a part of the set-up for visitors to foresee bad luck, welcome good luck and learn more on their own destiny. The bustling atmosphere, the scent of cakes, and tea enhanced the spirit of the Lunar New Year.

Tourism industry seeking visa fee waivers for all visitors to Vietnam

The Vietnam Tourism Association is asking the government to offer visa fee waivers to all tourists between July and December this year in an attempt to avert a drastic decline in foreign arrivals.

Vu The Binh, vice chairman of the association, said at a conference in Hanoi, that the fee exemption will be an "urgent solution" to deal with consecutive drops in tourist numbers over the last 11 months.

"It will be a breakthrough to help travel firms stimulate demand from tourists," Binh said, as cited by Thoi bao Kinh te Saigon Online.

He said tourists will be able to save US$45 of the visa fee, but it is also a gesture of goodwill.

Some industry insiders even said the government should learn from Singapore and start letting all foreign tourists enter the country freely without visa requirements.

Figures from the General Statistics Office showed that foreign arrivals in April increased 11.7 percent from March to 690,440, but down 7.4 percent year-on-year.

The combined number of the first four months was nearly 2.7 million, down 12.2 percent from the same period last year.

Binh conceded that Vietnam's tourism products are boring and not worth the prices, which are relatively higher than similar services in nearby countries.

He asked the government to also offer tax breaks to tourism firms and hotels in the second half of the year so that they can in turn offer discounts and launch promotional programs to bring tourists back.

He said similar programs in 2009 had helped the industry survive a crisis, with foreign arrivals rebounding and then surging 36 percent the following year.

Vietnam's visa waiver policy is currently effective for tourists from Denmark, Finland, Norway, Sweden, Japan, Russia and South Korea.

Binh said the government should consider extending it for another four large tourism markets of Vietnam, namely the UK, France, Germany and Australia.

Under a regional agreement, Vietnam also offers a 30-day visa waiver for tourists from the 10-member Association of Southeast Asian Nations, except for those from Brunei who receive a 14-day waiver.
