More than 7,000 visitors took electric bus tours around Hoan Kiem Lake and the Old Quarter in Hanoi during the 8 days of the Lunar New Year Festival, according to Mr. Do Xuan Thuy, Director of the Dong Xuan Joint Stock Company, which provides the electric bus service to visitors.

With such a large number of passengers, the company was able to earn more than VND100 million. With 20 buses, the company could only provide services to no more than 1,000 visitors a day despite the high demand of visitors during the Tet holiday.

More than 400, among the visitors, were foreigners from European countries, Japan, and South Korea.

Set-up on July 17th, 2010, the Company has provided its service to more than 100,000 visitors, and it plans to add more buses and improve the quality of its service for tourists in the near future.
