In the framework of the Promotion Month, the traditional “Tourism Promotion Day" program themed "Discover the beauty of Vietnam" will be held with 60 booths from tour operators around Hanoi.
The program features a series of events during November such as "Golden Day Promotion" from November 14 to 15; "Hanoi Mid-night Sale" with special discounts from 8:00pm at supermarkets and major trade centers; "Promotional Gold Fair" from December 3 to 7 at Times City with 125 booths; "Friday online shopping day" in the first week of December on the portals thangkhuyenmaihanoi.vn and onlinefriday.vn.
