After the Covid-19 epidemic, Nha Trang - Khanh Hoa is considered a safe destination. To speed up the recovery of tourism, businesses have launched stimulus packages for the year-end travel season.
 
 
During the past time, Khanh Hoa has always taken the initiative in measures to prevent and control the Covid-19 epidemic. Two surveys carried by the provincial Department of Tourism in July and October 2020 showed that tourism businesses actively implemented epidemic prevention and control; fully equipped medical equipment to prevent and fight the epidemic like masks, body thermometers, antiseptic liquid, warning leaflets and panels. Besides, 20 hotels in Khanh Hoa have served as quarantine places for a fee, helping the province to welcome Vietnamese citizens back home as well as diplomats, experts and foreigners to Vietnam through Cam Ranh International Airport. Thereby, the province has created trust and good impression for people and visitors as a safe, friendly and hospitable destination.
 
 
To speed up the recovery of tourism, businesses have launched product packages to stimulate demand in the year-end travel season. Recently, Vinpearl has launched a super sale package with room price from only 1,050,000VND/night, free breakfast for 2 guests, early check-in, late check-out, as well as an instant 30% discount for culinary services, spa and entertainment at VinWonders.
