Quang Ninh tourism to reopen after month-long restriction
Quang Ninh restarted tourist activities within the province on 2nd March, 2021, as the province has gone through 20 days without community transmission of COVID-19. However, it wasn’t ready to welcome tourists from other provinces yet, announced local authorities.
Visitors are required to strictly implement the instructions of the Ministry of Health as well as disease prevention measures. Provincial authorities particularly emphasize on strictly monitoring the tourism activities in Halong Bay, one of the busiest tourist areas in Vietnam as a whole. Meanwhile, other localities must keep their destinations under observation, especially where spiritual activities and traditional festivals happen, to restrict mass gatherings.
On the same day, Van Don International Airport also reopened domestic air routes. Previously, Quang Ninh province has decided to temporarily stop tourist activities due to complicated developments of the third wave of COVID-19 during February.
