Mekong Delta, southern islands are new domestic tourism hotspots
The Mekong Delta and southern islands like Phu Quoc and Con Dao are dominating domestic tour bookings as COVID-19 cases rise elsewhere in Vietnam.
Companies specializing in domestic tourism say about 70% of their customers are opting for Mekong Delta tours, most of which depart from Ho Chi Minh City.
The Mekong Delta boasts many orchards, gardens, rich culture and numerous comfortable resorts. It has also not reported any coronavirus infection so far.
Southern islands like Phu Quoc and Con Dao have also become appealing destinations. A typical tour lasts four days and three nights if customers travel by air.
Tours to the Central Highlands are also popular, but they are less attractive than the Mekong Delta and southern islands, according to travel firms./.VNA
The Mekong Delta has been known far and wide for long as a magnet to tourists thanks to its green space and orchards, crisscrossed by canals.
Around 17 km from the downtown of Can Tho city, Phong Dien floating market is bustling with people and boats very early every day at the first gleam of dawn.
