4 outstanding Vietnam tourism trends post Covid-19

1- Touchless travel trend

Keeping distance, limiting contact and regularly disinfecting hands are ways to prevent Covid-19 infection that have become our habits. No-touch while traveling after Covid-19 is not only limiting person-to-person contact, person-to-person contact with objects and surfaces, but also travel experiences with automation devices and technologies.

Normally, all kinds of travel documents are handed over when checking in, checking, controlling... This causes people to wait in line and increases the risk of infection. But with no-touch post-Covid-19 travel, all information will be updated with modern technology systems. With this new travel trend, every process at the check-in counter, the front desk will be automated. For example: electronic check-in, electronic payment, electronic customs declaration, facial recognition...

On airplanes, at tourist destinations, at restaurants and hotels, many modern non-touch devices such as touch-sensitive faucets are applied; automatic opening/closing doors… All will make travel activities safer and more convenient.

2- Economical and effective travel

Staycation is a type of travel within close proximity, which means you will experience travel locally. You do not need to go through a long journey in a remote place, nor do you need to use public transport. Staycation is an opportunity for you to discover interesting and interesting things near where you live that you missed before.

In 2020, the UK's tourism industry lost about £22 billion in revenue due to the impact of the Covid-19 epidemic. After the pandemic was gradually brought under control and the lockdown was eased, stay-at-home travel in this country spiked.

In Vietnam, this post-Covid-19 tourism trend has gradually become popular since 2019. And when the covid epidemic has not shown any signs of being completely controlled, this is still a tourism trend that is "followed by believers".

With this form of tourism, you not only limit the risk of disease spread, but also save considerable costs, and at the same time have the opportunity to discover many interesting things nearby.

3- Healthcare tourism

According to the forecast of the World Tourism Organization (UNWTO), tourism associated with health will grow strongly in the post-Covid-19 era. According to the Global Wellness Institute (GWI), this type of tourism could reach $919 billion in revenue by 2022.

Health tourism is a travel service that focuses on relaxation, beauty, and health care. When traveling, visitors can participate in meditation courses, yoga, nursing, hot mineral baths... to balance physical and mental well-being.

This post-Covid-19 tourism trend doesn't just stop at luxurious dining and enjoying beautiful scenery. The core purpose of wellness tourism is physical recovery and mental regeneration.

4- Isolated and little known places

In order to travel safely during the time when the Covid-19 epidemic has not been completely controlled, many people tend to go to unspoiled lands; isolated places. It can be the quiet countryside away from the noisy city; is a resort in the high mountains; are islands and beaches that have not been exploited for tourism.

Unspoiled, isolated locations not only bring tranquility but also bring absolute peace of mind. The reason is that these places are often "cocooned" for tourists, so they reduce the risk of disease spread.
