Many foreign tourists said they are excited and ready to visit Vietnam as soon as possible as the country scrapped entry restrictions after inbound tourism reopening.

Ben Teh from Singapore said he was glad that Vietnam is finally opening with relaxed entry rules and he can plan his trip to meet his friends.

“This is actually good news. It has been two years since I visited Vietnam. Miss my friends in Ho Chi Minh City,” Teh told VnExpress International.

“Lifting the quarantine restriction is good news for those looking for a short trip as no one would visit Vietnam with the previous three-day quarantine rule,” he added.

Teh plans to be in HCMC next week and would visit Hue, Vietnam’s former imperial capital famous for royal tombs and ancient temples
