The program will be implemented at about 40 hotels of four to five stars with more than 8,800 rooms in the city to promote Vietnam’s fruits.

La Quoc Khanh, deputy director of the HCMC Department of Tourism, said the program was being held by the department and funded by hotels.

Khanh told the Daily that the total amount of fruits to be consumed on this occasion depends on the number of guests at hotels. Three-star hotels in the city are also encouraged to participate in the program due to high potential for fruit promotion.

The Vietnam Fruit Week is part of the Southern Fruit Festival 2017 which is being jointly organized by HCMC’s tourism and trade and industry departments and Suoi Tien Cultural Tourism JSC.

The festival will take place during three summer months at Suoi Tien Park with many activities such as a fruit fair, a fruit floating market, a contest on delicious and safe fruit, fruit plastic art and fruit-based drinks making contest, and other food and music festivals.

The program with over 1,000 tons of fruits, mainly from southern provinces, is expected to welcome 1.1 million visitors, up 10% against last year. The organizers pledge to sell fruits at a discount of 20-30%.

According the Saigontourist Holding Company, many of its restaurants and hotels will offer fruit dishes to introduce Vietnamese fruits. Travel companies have also introduced the Southern Fruit Festival 2017 as part of the city tour program to local and international visitors.
