As a locality where the economy depends heavily on tourism, the damage caused by the COVID-19 pandemic has greatly affected the socio-economic development of Đà Lạt and Lâm Đồng Province.
In the first eight months of this year, the total number of tourists to Đà Lạt was only more than 2 million, down by half compared to the figure in the same period last year.
“From June until now, the province has implemented many activities to stimulate tourism demand such as launching tourism promotions and discounts. Many enterprises providing tourism services such as dining, accommodation, sightseeing have offered discounts from 30 to 50 per cent compared to normal days while many flights to Đà Lạt have also offered similar discounts,” said Nguyễn Thị Nguyên, the Director of the Department of Culture, Sports and Tourism of Lâm Đồng Province.
“The province is also a safe destination as there have been no cases of COVID-19 infection. However, due to tourists’ worries and current national economic difficulties, it will take a long time for the local tourism industry to recover and develop,” she added. — VNS
