“Ho Chi Minh City is an important destination on Fayfay.com and we look forward to partnering with the Ho Chi Minh City Tourism Promotion Centre to showcase the city’s vibrant architecture, rich culinary scene, and authentic local experiences,” said Lai.

As an e-commerce platform dedicated to authentic Vietnamese travel experiences, Fayfay.com not only focuses on curated on-the-ground packages, but also provides all the must-have travel essentials in one convenient place. On the site, travellers will find several resources, such as ‘Visa on arrival’ applications, SIM cards, and private transportation services. In addition, the site is full of opportunities to book memorable hands-on activities, such as lantern-making or silversmithing workshops.
“Hong Kong will be our focal market in the coming years, and we hope that travellers from the city will be inspired to visit Ho Chi Minh City thanks to the exceptional activities and experiences showcased on Fayfay.com,” said Quan. “Together with Fayfay.com, we hope to make a significant contribution to tourism in Vietnam through joint promotional events, roadshows, and media familiarisation trips.”
To celebrate the MoU, Fayfay.com and the Ho Chi Minh City Tourism Promotion Centre led a group of representatives of Hong Kong media agencies to visit Ho Chi Minh City on December 3-7, with flight sponsorship courtesy of Vietnam Airlines.
From the airline’s warm hospitality to the enticing street food, French-colonial architecture, thriving markets, and hands-on experiences, participating media representatives enjoyed an enriching introduction to Ho Chi Minh City.
