Results of a survey released by leading online accommodation reservations provider Agoda found four out of 10 Vietnamese respondents willing to travel again within four months after social distancing measures are removed.
The survey was carried out by Singapore-based market research company YouGov Singapore Pte. Ltd among a sample of 1,103 Vietnamese adults last July.
Just 5 percent said they would travel immediately after restrictions are lifted, while 14 percent said they would do so within the first month. Twenty-five percent of surveyed respondents said they would wait until the pandemic situation gets better and 16 percent said they would only travel again after 80 percent of Vietnamese population are fully vaccinated or Vietnam achieves herd immunity.
One-third of respondents said they look forward to spending time by beach or exploring nature on their first trip after the pandemic.
Vietnam has closed its borders since last March and most tourism spots at home are also shut down as the country grapples with its most challenging outbreak since late April.
More than 570,000 infections have been detected in the latest outbreak, prompting many localities to impose strict lockdowns and suspend tourism activities.
Over 24.7 million people have received at least one Covid-19 vaccine shot to date and more than 4.1 million people have been fully vaccinated.
