    Foreign visitors to Vietnam in August and September would receive free visa, according to the Vietnam National Administration of Tourism. The authority said they would also receive value added tax refund when they buy goods in Vietnam.

    In addition, a promotion campaign with reduction of 10-40 percent on goods prices would be run at the same time in Hanoi, Danang, and HCM

    A forecast by the authority said that the 1,000th anniversary of Thang Long – Hanoi, which will take place on October 10, would attract a large number of visitors to Hanoi and northern provinces.

    Luu Duc Ke, Vice President of Vietnam Heritage Travel Company, the official sponsor, said that during the peak period of the anniversary, the hotel system in Hanoi would be preferentially used to serve invited guests, and delegates from other provinces, and other foreign countries.

    So, to prevent a shortage of rooms or the overloaded situation, Vietnam Heritage Travel and other travel companies have designed suitable routes so that visitors would rest in other neighboring provinces.

    It is expected that the number of customers of Vietnam Heritage Travel will rise to around 10,000 on this occasion, 10 times higher than normal, of which domestic visitors account the most.

    Vietnam Airlines will continue to implement the campaign to stimulate domestic tourism demand. The fares from southern and central provinces to the north will be cut by 30-35 percent.

    To welcome the 1000 anniversary of the capital city of Hanoi Vietnam Heritage Travel Company has decided to extend promotional program which gives free visa to Vietnam in the rest of 2010. Festival tickets is also available, please visit website at
