The number of tours booked to Laos for the 25th SEA Games skyrocketed after Vietnam’s U23 football squad beat Malaysia and moved closer to the finals on Sunday, said travel companies.

Saigontourist, meanwhile, sold 400 Laos tours.
Due to the small capacity of seats in Vientiane, Laos’ stadiums, securing tickets to the events has been difficult.
Travel firms, however, said that all visitors who sign up for tours are guaranteed tickets provided by the firms’ partners in Vientiane.
Most tourists have registered for road tours as airline tickets to Laos are already sold out.
A 5 day/4 night package beginning December 13 or 16 is around VND7,630,000 (US$400), including a game ticket worth $40 for the semifinal match or $50 for the final, said Fiditour.
