Flying beyond limitations
The “Lion City” and the land of “Wats” are among the most wanted destinations of Vietnamese tourists in the Asian region. Entering Singapore and Thailand only requires an ordinary passport within 6-month validity as this is one of visa-free countries for Vietnamese citizens.
In this April, representatives of many Thailand travel agencies has predicted a surge in the travel demands of Thai tourists to Vietnam after the pandemic. The online travel Agoda also revealed Thailand is the most sought-after international destination through the booking database of Vietnamese tourists from April 1 to 14, 2022.
Vietnam is also an attractive destination for Singapore tourists as 90% of Singaporean are eager to visit Vietnam in 2022 according to a current survey of CAG. 95% said they would stay in Vietnam for at least 7 days and their most wanted attractions include HCM City, Hanoi, Ha Long, and Da Nang.
As of now, travel restrictions have been lifted to create hassle-free travel for tourists. Singapore has launched the Vaccinated Travel Lane offering quarantine-free travel for Vietnamese with a green travel pass, Vietnam stopped medical declaration for international arrivals, meanwhile tourists with Covid-19 negative result can enter Thailand without any further test or quarantine requirements.
In such context, Bamboo Airways expects every new route connecting Vietnam to Thailand and Singapore will contribute to promoting trade and tourism post-pandemic recovery of countries.
The airline’s representative also stated to commence service between Vietnamese capital Hanoi and Singapore from May 4, 2022. This will lay a solid foundation for Bamboo Airways to operate many more routes from Vietnam cities and provinces to Southeast Asian countries in the future.
