Hanoi (VNA) – Discovering the white sand beaches of Sihanoukville, the mysterious Bokor Plateau as well as watching an Apsara Dance performance are just some of what included in the time-saving escorted tours which are jointly operated by Vietnamese tour operator Vietravel and Cambodia’s Angkor Air.

The four-day tours will be launched after the direct flights connecting Ho Chi Minh City and Preah Sihanoukville become operational from June 17.

These tours comprise Sihanoukville-Koh Rong Samloem-Seam Riep starting on June 17, July 28, August 23 and September 29; and Sihanoukville-Bokor-Seam Riep setting off on June 30, July 14, August 11 and September 8. They will be offered at reasonable costs.

Air travel to Sihanoukville will take the customers only one hour instead of eight hours going by car.

Earlier, Vietravel launched two new luxury package tours: five-star cruise package and five-star holiday package.

The five-star cruise package included outbound tours to Singapore, Malaysia, China, the Republic of Korea, Japan, and Russia.

When selecting the five-star holiday package, holiday-makers have a chance to enjoy a number of luxury services at the Vinpearl villas and resorts in the central cities of Da Nang and Nha Trang, as well as on Phu Quoc island in the south.-VNA
