As Vietnam plans to resume international flights and tourism, many say they will wait until the country is fully open.

"Vietnam still insist on 7 days quarantine. Cannot work this way. Look at Thailand, Australia, Singapore... Tourists do not want to stay 7 days at designated hotels, eat their food, stay confined. Sometimes tourists just come for 5 days, 3 days. Vietnam does not understand - foreigners do not HAVE much free time to waste. Foreigners work very hard for the money. No foreigners accept 7 days package tour and designated hotels."

Zar Tan

"If you set too many restrictions like must book tour packages or must quarantine = Not many will come to Vietnam. I would love to go Vietnam. I understand that only 5 localities will be opened to tourists and need to do several tests and to buy the insurance cover. I accept all these minimal safety requirements but please don't place more burden on tourists if we are truly welcomed.

If we are fully vaccinated then lets all come together and get things moving nicely. We mutually need each other."

Christopher Law

"Can't wait to visit Vietnam again. 7 day quarantine will deter nearly all travelers (& me) and tourists. More rules = less visitors. Let the full vax enjoy Vietnam unrestricted. Hopefully sometime soon."

William Buzzby

"If you are a tourist, no hurry as to come now. Better to wait till Vietnam is fully open and enjoy the freedom to explore the beautiful Vietnam.

But if you are coming to Vietnam to visit your family and loved one then it is best to think twice. If you dont come now then you may not be able to come soon, because you will never know when another outbreak will come again."

Vincent Lim

"My wife and i have been waiting to return to see family. As soon as we are allowed in and not confined to a specific resort or hotel we will come. We have been to Spain and Paris in the last 2 months. We are vaccinated and happy to test on departure from the U.K. No point in coming before we can move freely. Fully support the Vietnamese people in managing Covid. Looking forward to the earliest opportunity to return :)"

Grant Ford

"If you don't let tourists being free inside Vietnam and keep telling them where to go, no one will come."
