Holiday Inn brings families together and celebrates joy of travel as 10,000 people attend Joy Festivals in Vietnam

Hosted in Ho Chi Minh City and Hanoi, these upbeat events showcased the spirit of the Holiday Inn brand with an array of activities for all ages

Holiday Inn Hotels & Resorts, one of the world’s most recognised hotel brand, brought summer vibes to families in Vietnam recently with a pair of pop-up festivals that let communities come together in a fun, upbeat atmosphere and delivered genuine warm and heartfelt hospitality, in line with Holiday Inn’s core values.

Hosted at Tao Dan Park in Ho Chi Minh City on  25 June 2022 and at Thong Nhat Park in Hanoi on 2  July 2022, the Joy Festivals brought the spirit of the Holiday Inn brand to life with exciting activities for all ages. In the heat of summer, kids eagerly lined up for their turns on the 50-meter water slide and broke into excited laughter as they sped down the slope, with parents ready with their cameras to capture the expressions of joy on their children’s faces. The mini car area attracted young daredevils as they tried to out-race each other with parents cheering them on as they navigated the obstacles course.

Part of the  IHG Hotels & Resorts, Holiday Inn is one of the most recognised and trusted travel brands in the world, serving more than 14 million guests every year. It currently operates two properties in Vietnam: Holiday Inn & Suites Saigon Airport, which opened in September 2019 to mark the brand’s debut in the country, and Holiday Inn Resort Ho Tram Beach, which launched in January 2022 on the country’s stunning southeast coast.

As the world starts to travel again, we are delighted to invite all our guests, including local and overseas families, to rediscover the wonders of Vietnam.
