Clara Ferreira Marques, the author behind the article titled “Vietnam breaks out of the COVID-19 tourists trap”, start the article by commenting “Vietnam is pulling ahead in the race to reopen tourism, which will help convalesce the economy, and may encourage a welcome rethink on leisure industry priorities”.

Being something of a standout case in the world through the pandemic thanks to rapid decisions, Vietnam - a country of nearly 100 million that borders China – is said to be one of the first countries globally to get its citizens holidaying again.

A “Vietnamese People Travel in Vietnam” campaign began just as the country’s airline industry restarts regular schedules.

According to the General Statistics Office, Vietnam’s international arrivals were down 98 percent in May from a year earlier. Last year, however, Vietnam saw 85 million domestic tourists, who made up more than 80% of all visitors, which goes to show the importance of local tourists for the country’s domestic tourism.

On top of that, Vietnam has around 5 million jobs related to the tourism industry, many for lower-skilled workers.

Under Clara’s point of view, Vietnam's domestic tourism promotion trend is more cautious than some European countries that are racing towards the peak summer months by opening the "tourism corridor". with some neighboring countries.
