Vietnam’s tourism attractions and heritage sites remain open to the public. With the exception of a small handful of cities that have registered infections, Vietnam’s destinations remain virus-free and are safe to visit. Travellers can still take tours of Ha Long Bay and Hoi An Ancient Town, and public attractions such as museums remain open to visitors.
