Orchid and Monkey Islands welcome visitors back at weekend

Long Phu Tourist Joint Stock Company announced the reopening of Orchid and Monkey Islands on August 26. Accordingly, the 2 tourist spots welcome visitors back every Friday, Saturday and Sunday and during the national holiday (September 2) on September 1-3.
 
Reportedly, there used to be 1,200 – 1,400 visitors/ day, even up to 2,000 at weekend to Orchid and Monkey Islands in the summer tourism season (early July 2020).  However, COVID-19 has surged again, resulting in a sharp drop in tourist numbers. Together with the COVID-19 prevention measures, Orchid and Monkey Islands were temporarily closed from August 10.
