Holidaymakers are opting for destinations close to Hanoi or in suburban areas while ensuring safety against the backdrop of the pandemic, as tourism activities in Hanoi and many localities are hard hit amid the complexities of COVID-19.

A homestay in Minh Phu commune of Soc Son outlying district is fully booked about one month ago as visitors took the initiative of making reservation and they could not travel far.

All visitors are required to be fully vaccinated and test negative for COVID-19 using rapid antigen test, along with adhering to the 5K message of the Ministry of Health.

To ensure safety of tourism activities amid the pandemic, in addition to complying with regulations in serving customers, many destinations and companies have devised suitable travel tours.

Recently, Hanoi people, especially the youths, are keen on paragliding at Doi Bu in Chuong My district. The site is 40 km away of Hanoi downtown, which is a suitable distance for a day trip. It boasts a pristine landscape of mountains and hills.

The Hanoi Department of Tourism is rolling out stringent preventive measures in the new normal, with due attention being paid to safety.
