The programme was designed to celebrate the 2021 New Year and restart waterway tourism activities at night, after a halt triggered by COVID-19, creating momentum for domestic tourism development, said Deputy Director of the city’s Department of Tourism Nguyen Xuan Binh.

Fifteen boats sailed simultaneously at 8 pm and the tour lasted for more than one hour. Musical performance was staged before departure.

Nearly 1,000 people joined the tour on the first evening of the year.

A host of cultural activities were also held across the central city’s public locations to mark the New Year holiday./.
