Up to 209 South Korean tourists with vaccine passports will arrive in Phu Quoc Island in the southern province of Kien Giang on a Vietjet flight on Saturday.

They are the first international tourists visiting Viet 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 Phu Quoc United Centre super complex.

The South Korean tourists will board VJ3749 flight from Incheon International Airport and land at Phu Quoc 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 Phu Quoc United Centre following the international arrival guidelines of the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism and Kien Giang Province.

"This is an important step in affirming Viet 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 Viet 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 Phu Quoc 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 Phu Quoc 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 Phu Quoc, which has been approved to accommodate international travellers following a travel bubble scheme.

The tourists can also relax and experience Phu Quoc 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 Phu Quoc 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 Phu Quoc 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, Phu Quoc Island is expected to welcome 20 international flights each month in the near future. — VNS
