HCM CITY — Up to 209 South Korean tourists with vaccine passports will arrive in Phú Quốc Island in the southern province of Kiên Giang on a Vietjet flight on Saturday. 

They are the first international tourists visiting Việt Nam after nearly two years due to the COVID-19 pandemic. They will have a 4-day-3-night package tour covering flights to accommodation and a series of high-class tourism, resort and entertainment activities at Phú Quốc United Centre super complex.

The South Korean tourists will board VJ3749 flight from Incheon International Airport and land at Phu Quốc International Airport at 12pm on Saturday.

The tour’s whole itinerary has been co-ordinated by Vinpearl’s strategic partner, Highland Marketing Tourism Company and Vietjet to bring tourists, who have been fully vaccinated, to Phú Quốc United Centre following the international arrival guidelines of the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism and Kiên Giang Province.

"This is an important step in affirming Việt Nam’s attractiveness and abilities to meet high-class tourism services when the country opens up to international tourists in a new normal context. It is expected to bring a travel experience called “Live Fully” to all travellers across the world when visiting Việt Nam," Vietjet said in a statement. 

In addition to Vietjet’s safe and comfortable air services, the South Korean travellers will also have opportunities to experience an extremely unique journey at the Phú Quốc United Centre, which owns a world-class ecosystem of tourism, experience, discovery, shopping, festival  and art with the highest safety standards, the airline said.

Following their arrival at Phú Quốc International airport, the tourists will need to go through a health screening process and install the IGOVN and PC-COVID applications on their phones before leaving for hotel check-in. All tourists will stay at Vinpearl Resort & Spa Phú Quốc, which has been approved to accommodate international travellers following a travel bubble scheme.

The tourists can also relax and experience Phú Quốc United Centre complex including five-star rooms and villas, sports, entertainment, playground at Vinpearl Golf, VinWonders theme park, Vinpearl Safari semi-wildlife care and conservation park, Corona Casino and Grand World Phú Quốc in close proximity.

During their “4-day-3-night” vacation, the visitors are supposed to conduct two quick COVID-19 tests on the first and last day of their journey. With negative results, they can go for sightseeing, entertainment, dining, shopping at attractive places in the vaccine passport’s itinerary at the Phú Quốc United Centre. Also, they will be always advised to self-monitor their health conditions, practice the “5K messages” and follow disease prevention measures during the trip.

In order to bring maximum peace of mind to each visitor, besides strictly following the instructions in the vaccine passport tourism guidelines, Vinpearl’s facilities maintain the activation of the three-layer shield through maximum 24/7 health control, strictest hygiene and disease prevention process in relevant areas while offering an enhanced set of safety standards.

Following the first tourist group arrival, Phú Quốc Island is expected to welcome 20 international flights each month in the near future. — VNS
