In Khanh Hoa province tourism has been slowed by Covid 19. Local authorities have disinfected travel agencies, accommodations, and tourism facilities, distributed facemasks to tourists and checked tourists’ body temperatures and their itineraries.

Tran Viet Trung, Director of Khanh Hoa province’s Department of Tourism, said "Local administrators and businesses are working closely to carry out disease prevention measures to ensure a safe environment for visitors."

Thua Thien Hue province has strengthened disease prevention measures to protect heritages and ensure health safety for tourists. The Center for Hue Relic Site Management has handed out more than 10,000 free facemasks at the Imperial Citadel and the Tu Duc, Minh Mang, and Khai Dinh monuments.

Dinh Manh Thang, President of the Thua Thien Hue Tourism Association, said "We have implemented measures to make the province a safe and friendly tourist destination."

In addition to disease prevention measures, the Vietnamese tourism sector has also improved its services and increased cooperation to create travel packages more attractive to tourists.

Vu The Binh, Vice President of the Vietnam Tourism Association, said "We have for a long time paid little attention to human resource training and now we should take advantage of the current free time to improve our staff, upgrade tourism facilities and study the tourism market. We think this crisis time is a good time to focus on ways to improve our competitiveness when the epidemic is over."

Travel companies and localities have expanded their markets to Russia, Western Europe, and India, increased their communications to promote the image of Vietnam’s land and people, and upgraded their facilities to ensure greater safety.
