Three in five said they have visited Vietnam before, and most respondents were impressed by Vietnam's diverse cuisine, natural landscapes and traditional culture.

Vietnam resumed commercial flights to and from Singapore on January 1.

In November the government started allowing in foreign tourists under a vaccine passport program, and nearly 8,000 have arrived so far.

But they are only allowed to come on package tours with limited itineraries.

Khanh Hoa, Kien Giang, Quang Nam, Quang Ninh, and Binh Dinh provinces and HCMC and Da Nang City are the only localities they are allowed to visit.

Various industry trade groups have called on the government to consider fully reopening the country to foreign visitors from May 1 to revive the tourism sector.
