As Vietnam has gone 42 days without community transmission of Covid-19, authorities of ancient town Hoi An decided to recommence all tourism activities next Monday.
Nguyen Van Son, vice chairman of Hoi An in the central province of Quang Nam, said the 400-year-old town would resume all tourist activities along its pedestrian-friendly streets from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. to 9:30 p.m.
Popular destinations set to welcome back visitors on June 1 include Bay Mau Coconut Forest, two miles from the town center, Thanh Ha Pottery Village and Tra Que Village.
Hoi An, where a British tourist was found infected with Covid-19, had closed its pedestrian streets and suspended all tourism activities from mid-March to prevent gatherings of large crowds and help contain the spread of the novel coronavirus.
The town has resumed part of its tourism activities following the government easing social distancing restrictions on April 23.
