The number of people flocking to Ho Chi Minh City has skyrocketed in these days after the traditional Lunar New Year (Tet) festival ended.

On average, about 1,400 trips have carried some 40,000 passengers per day from other provinces and cities nationwide to Ho Chi Minh City .

However, no traffic congestion has been recorded, according to officials from the Mien Tay and Mien Dong Bus Stations.

To meet the people’s travel demand, the Mien Tay Bus Station has prepared parking areas and arranged security guards to maintain the order as well as coordinated with bus owners to increase trips, said Tran Van Phuong, deputy director of the station.

Meanwhile, the Tan Son Nhat International Airport also increased its flights to more than 500 per day from February 4-6 to serve passengers after Tet, according to the airport director Dang Tuan Tu.-VNA
