The photos snapped by Tuan Viet on his tours around Vietnamese cities and provinces include shots from Hanoi, Hue, Dong Thap, An Giang, and Bac Lieu, all of which have received plenty of praise from the wider international community. Some said they want to visit Vietnam while others recalled their times in the Southeast Asia country.

Vietnam’s tourism sector has made strides in more than the last 10 years to turn the country into one of the world’s famous destinations for resort tourism, with various prestigious international awards, according to VNA.
Recently, three famous cities of Hanoi, Ho Chi Minh City and Phu Quoc made themselves onto the list of the world’s 100 greatest places to explore on Earth in 2021 as voted by US-based Time Magazine.
Despite the complications of the pandemic, the Golden Bridge in the central city of Da Nang came first in a list of fresh wonders of the world compiled by the UK’s daily newspaper Daily Mail.
Vietnam’s tourism sector has been hardest-hit by Covid-19 as the number of foreign tourists in the first six months of 2021 saw a year-on-year plunge of 97.6% with only 88,200. Tourism revenues only reached VND 4.5 trillion (USD 197.64 million), down 51.8%.
If Vietnam succeeds in piloting the ‘Covid-19 vaccine passport’ policy, the sector can bounce back, welcoming back both domestic and foreign visitors, said tourism experts.
