Popular tourism town Hoi An will reopen its pedestrian plaza and other tourist attractions on Monday as it prepares to welcome back foreign visitors.

Thanh Ha pottery village, Tra Que vegetable village, Bay Mau coconut forest, and Cham Islands will also open to visitors from Monday after several months of closure due to Covid-19.

There will be a discount of 50 percent on admission tickets and a series of cultural and art activities and festivals organized to stimulate tourism.

Tourism businesses, restaurants and resorts in the town have upgraded infrastructure and decorative lanterns, which did not cope well with the long closure.

Earlier Quang Nam Province authorities agreed to allow foreign tourists to visit UNESCO-recognized sites Hoi An and the My Son Sanctuary and stay at designated resorts after they got approval from the government.

Kien Giang, Khanh Hoa and Quang Ninh provinces and Da Nang City have also got similar approval.

Quang Nam received over 4.6 million foreign tourists in 2019, the last full year of normal travel before Covid broke out.
