The first tour was organized for a group of more than 40 guests and journalists (press trip) on January 29.
“With the desire to contribute to promoting the image of the city during the recovery period of tourism activities at the most beautiful time of the year, Saigontourist Group sponsors and directly organizes the spring flower market tour at Ben Binh Dong, from survey trips, product evaluation to the completed program, thereby spreading the charming beauty of the typical traditional spring flower market of the Southern city to the citizens, the overseas communities and tourists”, shared a representative of Saigontourist Group.
