Ms Van’s trip to Da Nang was suddenly interrupted as two British who were staying in the same hotel with her were confirmed positive for COVID-19. As a result, all staff and visitors at the hotel were required to quarantined for 14 days.
Then, the schedule of Ms. Van’s family was delayed. She had to ask relatives to help many jobs in her home country. However, the most worrying thing for Ms. Van is that she may be infected with COVID-19.
“We are free of charged during isolation, have daily health checks. The way Vietnam is fighting with the pandemic makes me feel really reassured”, Ms. Van said.

Mr. Ho, another Hong Kong tourist would like to send special thanks to the hotel’s staff for their enthusiastic attention and care in the past these days. Many hotel staff, just like him, had to quarantine for 14 days but they did help a lot, especially in eating and drinking matters.
“We have a memorable memory here, and will definitely come back to enjoy the beautiful scenery and visit old friends here,” Ho said.
Mr. Nguyen Duc Cuong, Vanda hotel’s manager said, despite the sudden quarantine order, we all try to create a happy atmosphere for the tourists to feel satisfied and cooperate well in a bid to fight the pandemic.
Even in an isolated space, a small birthday party was held for a tourist.
