Vietnam listed among top destinations after COVID-19
Vietnam ranked 13th among CNTraveller's selection of the top 21 holiday destinations for 2021.
This comes after CNTraveler’s publication in the United States released an article stating that due to Vietnam being one of the first countries to impose a lockdown, it has successfully kept infection rates among the lowest in the world.
“To help offset losses to the US$32 billion tourism industry, the Government launched Vietnamese People Travel in Vietnam, with airfares and rates at luxury resorts like the iconic Sofitel Legend Metropole Hanoi slashed by up to 50% in some cases”, according to the website.
The website also suggested a number of attractive destinations to visit in the nation, including luxurious resorts, the North-South railway, and community-based tourism. CNTraveller called Bai San Ho in Phu Yen province as “one of the country’s most biodiverse regions.” Vietnamnet cited.

Miss Vietnam 2020 format changed due to Covid-19
The Miss Vietnam beauty pageant will be shortened from three months to two and a half months. In previous years, there were semi-final rounds held for both northern and southern regions and the final night. However, this year, there will only be one semi-final round held at Hanoi's My Dinh Stadium on a much bigger scale.
Le Xuan Son, editor-in-chief of Tien Phong News and organizer of Miss Vietnam 2020, said "Many people questioned whether it is okay to organize the contest now. We decided to hold it because it is the largest event for any Vietnamese women who are eligible", quoted by Dan Tri.
Pham Kim Dung, deputy head of the organizing board, said they had been badly affected by Covid-19. Several sponsors had dropped out. However, they also had more time to organise and develop a more detailed plan. They have fully prepared for any situation.
