Around 90.6 percent of respondents to a survey said they are making travel plans for this year and early next year as the country’s Covid-19 outbreak has been controlled.

Only 6.4 percent said they would travel again after being injected with Covid-19 vaccines while the remaining said they have no plans to do so, according to a recent survey by VnExpress which polled 3,508 Vietnamese.

Nearly 50 percent of respondents said they intend to make short trips of two to three days while 44 percent plan longer trips of four days to a week. Just 1.3 percent favor a one-day trip while the remainder are looking at trips of more than a week.

A dominant 65.9 percent said they would like to enjoy coastal resorts during their trip while 61 percent said they would discover food culture.

A total 34 percent favor mountainous resorts while 45.5 percent prefer eco-tourism activities.

The survey found 49.8 percent of respondents want to travel with their family, 26.4 percent with friends and 4.3 percent with their colleagues.

Around 4.6 percent prefer to travel alone while the remainder opt for tours.

Nearly 70 percent said they want to travel by plane, 29.4 percent by personal transport and 35.3 percent by rental car. Just 12 percent are considering train travel.

With local Covid-19 outbreaks under control, domestic airlines and railway operators have increased the frequency of flight and train schedules.

The survey also found 42.7 percent of respondents plan to book hotel rooms and tours through online platforms while 33.8 percent plan to contact tour operators directly.

Vietnam has contained its latest Covid-19 outbreak that reemerged on Jan. 28. All 13 affected localities including hotspot Hai Duong have passed many days without community transmissions.

With the Covid-19 outbreak contained, domestic air travel demand has almost returned to normal, with many cities and provinces, including Hai Phong, Hanoi, Ho Chi Minh City, and Quang Ninh allowing tourism services to resume.
