By this time, the number of visitors to Vinpearl Land has increased by more than 2.5 times compared to the time when the tourism activity returned in early May 2020. 
 
Summer tourism season has invigorated Khanh Hoa tourism, but according to many businesses, Khanh Hoa tourism still faces many difficulties because of the empty in the international tourist market. According to the Khanh Hoa Travel Association, at present, most of the travel businesses have re-operated but are still only at a standstill, with a capacity of only 30% compared to the same period last year because they only do domestic tourism. Nguyen Quang Thang - Director of Tictours International Travel Co., Ltd said: “The pause of international tourism market has made our company very difficult. For employees to have jobs, we have to switch to the domestic tourism market ... However, this is only a temporary solution as the number of domestic tourists will decrease deeply in September when the summer tourism season ends.” Hotels and resorts are also operating in a bid to have income for their employees. 
 
According to Nguyen Thi Le Thanh - Deputy Director of the provincial Department of Tourism, Nha Trang - Khanh Hoa is a favorite destination for domestic tourists; therefore, businesses need to take advantage of the golden time of the summer tourist season to attract tourists in order to create jobs for employees and maintain their operations until the epidemic ends and tourism recovers.
