Famous tourist sites in Phu Yen and Hoi An have reopened as the Covid-19 outbreak has been curbed.


Tourist sites in Phu Yen reopened.

Phu Yen People's Committee announced on September 7 that all tourist sites in Phu Yen District would be reopened from September 8. The committee asked management boards of the sites to strictly follow preventive measures of the Ministry of Health such as preparing hand sanitiser for visitors.

Pham Van Bay, director of Phu Yen Department of Culture, Sports and Tourism, said, "We have asked the management boards to follow the regulations to ensure the safety of all visitors and staff."

He went on to say that Phu Yen hasn't reported any Covid-19 case. 170 people are being quarantined and 520 are self-isolated at home.

Starting from September 6, all activities were returned to normal in Quang Nam Province. Even though there are only a few visitors from other districts and towns in Quang Nam, Hoi An Town has become more lively.

Nguyen Ha Vy from Tam Ky City said, "Hoi An is the favourite destination of me and my friends. We are a bit sad though since the historical sites haven't been opened yet. The restaurants and shops have reopened. Let's go to Hoi An everyone, it is safe now."

According to the local owners, they had many difficulties after two outbreaks. Many people have to shut down businesses. Currently, many services including boat trips on the Hoai River are hoping that more visitors will arrive.

Nguyen Thi Tien, a boatwoman in Hoi An, said, "I miss the bustling Hoi An. The streets are so empty now. For the past several months, boat people like us didn't have any significant incomes. I hope more people will come to Hoi An now since the situation has got better."
