Due to Covid-19’s fallout, the number of tourists to Ca Mau in 2020 decreased by more than 56% compared to 2019, resulting in a downturn of over 71% in revenue.
At the moment, many hotels and travel agents in the locality are offering discounts. Entrance at The Ca Mau Cape area is also offered free of charge to teachers and students nationwide.
Thanks to its increasingly developed infrastructure system, Ca Mau - the southernmost province of Vietnam – has built up 2 tourist areas and 14 community-based ecotourism sites.
