Many hotels in Ba Ria-Vung Tau Province have reported full occupancy as the number of tourists is on the rise, though the holidays of April 30 and May 1 are still a while away, signaling good news for the tourism sector.
Nguyen Van Tuan, manager of Long Hai Hotel in Ba Ria-Vung Tau Province, told Lao Dong Online that over the past one year, the hotel saw few guests and its highest occupancy rate at a mere 20%. However, for some days last week, the number of tourists who booked rooms at the hotel surged, with the occupancy rate at 90%.
For April 17 and 18, the hotel is fully booked, and it is the first time since the coronavirus pandemic that the hotel is seeing some 100 rooms in total fully booked, Tuan said, adding that the hotel was fully booked three weeks ago for the Reunification Day, April 30.
Last weekend, many guests fully booked rooms at Vietsovpetro Ho Tram, said a representative of the resort.
Many hotels at sea tourist destinations near HCM City such as Ho Tram, Long Hai, Vung Tau and Mui Ne are seeing the number of guests soar on weekends.
Do Van Thuc, deputy director of Dat Viet Tour, said that the firm had received rising tour bookings on weekends.
Recently, Dat Viet Tour has been seeing an average 1,500 guests book weekend tours to the sea each week, some 200 kilometers from HCM City, he said.
Apart from this, since March, when the coronavirus outbreak was brought under control in Vietnam, Alo Limo, a transport firm, has become busier on weekends, said Le Gia Thanh Tam, a representative of Alo Limo.
Over the past few weeks, each week has seen some 10-15 groups of tourists book limousines for their trips, mainly to Da Lat, Phan Thiet and Vung Tau, Tam said.
