Vietnam tourism has been revived. So what‪?‬ Vietnam and Boba

    • Society & Culture

March 15 was a much anticipated date in Vietnam. You can almost hear the collective relief when the government finally resumed inbound tourism on that day after two years of border closure. Tourism sector accounted for about 10% of the GDP before the pandemic and most of that came from inbound tourism so it was quite a big deal. But is it entirely positive news?

How are industry players going to use this milestone and essentially this entire pandemic to transform an industry that does not exactly have a reputation for being sustainable? In this episode with Vietnam and Boba, behind the headlines, you will get to hear directly from the voices inside Vietnam’s tourism sector.
