Over 30,000 foreigners in country for SEA Games

HANOI welcomed 700,000 domestic tourists and 31,448 foreigners who visited or participated in events at the recently concluded SEA Games, according to the municipal Department of Tourism.

As at May 23, the closing day of the regional sporting event, 18 hotels in Hanoi had accommodated more than 5,600 Vietnamese and foreign delegates, referees, athletes and reporters.

In addition, other accommodation facilities stood ready to welcome tourists travelling to Hanoi during the Games.

Vietnam has lifted nearly all Covid-19 restrictions, with no mandatory quarantine, negative Covid-19 tests, or vaccine certificate proofs required for foreign arrivals as pre-pandemic visa policies also reinstated from mid-March.

The Department of Tourism asked agencies to roll out new tourism products at the capital city’s famous attractions such as the Hoan Kiem Lake pedestrian zone, Thang Long Imperial Citadel and Bat Trang pottery village, bus tours and city night tours, and other tourism events.

Images of Hanoi and preparations for the SEA Games were promoted on the department’s portal and websites on Hanoi tourism as well as TV channels and social media. — Vietnam News/ANN
