The festival is held by HCM City Department of Tourisms ahead of and during the Lunar New Year (Tet) holiday to contribute to preserving and promoting traditional cultural values of the nation, as well as promoting local tourist destinations to regional and international friends, thus stimulating tourism demand and attracting more visitors to the city.

It is an event marking the chain of activities in the third phase of HCM City’s recovery plan when the southern metropolis has just been approved by the Prime Minister to implement a pilot plan to welcome back international tourists. It also shows the local tourism sector’s thorough preparation and readiness for receiving visitors this year.

The same day, the HCM City Labour Federation also organized an programme titled “Tet sum vay – Xuan binh an” for workers staying in HCM City to welcome the Lunar New Year./.
