Binh Thuan Province eyes resumption of tourism

The Binh Thuan Province’s Department of Culture, Sports and Tourism is discussing plans to reopen Mui Ne, a famous destination in the locality, to visitors from October 20.



Bui The Nhan, Director of the department, said that allowing back travellers soon is imperative for saving the tourism industry which has been closed for many months.

More than 80 percent of tourist facilities in Mui Ne have been closed since February last year due to the COVID-19 epidemic.

But with the situation in the province now controlled, the department has been working with the Vietnam Tourism Association to develop tourist safety guidelines and prepare other necessary conditions for the reopening of the sector.

Among others, the province needs to immediately give the second dose of vaccine to staff at hotels and resorts, Nhan stressed.

To start with, Mui Ne would allow in domestic tourists, including foreigners living in Vietnam, who have received two vaccine shots or had recovered from COVID-19, he added./.
