Tourism hotspots Hoi An and Ninh Binh on Monday renewed tourism activities that had been suspended for several months due to the Covid-19 threat.

Popular Hoi An attractions such as the Pagoda Bridge, Thanh Ha pottery village, Tra Que vegetable village, Bay Mau coconut forest, and Cham Islands welcomed back visitors.

In Hoi An’s pedestrian plaza, tourists are required to scan QR codes for health declarations at entry points.

However, heavy rains on Monday kept people away.

Truong Thi Ngoc Cam, director of the Center for Culture, Sports, Broadcasting and Television of Hoi An, said 91 percent of the town people have got one dose of a Covid vaccine and 35 percent are fully vaccinated, according to the government news portal.

Quang Nam Province, home to Hoi An, is awaiting two charter flights on Wednesday and Thursday carrying over 400 American tourists under a vaccine passport program. They will stay at Hoiana Major Integrated Resort for a week and visit UNESCO heritage sites Hoi An town and My Son Sanctuary among some other places.

Authorities in Ninh Binh Province, home to UNESCO-recognized Trang An Landscape Complex, started allowing in intra-provincial tourists on Monday.

The northern province, situated around two hours from Hanoi, plans to welcome back all domestic tourists starting early December.

Last month Quang Binh Province and Vung Tau, Mui Ne and Sa Pa opened their doors to domestic tourists.
