The demands for domestic tourism are currently dominant as many people still worry about their health and safety after the pandemic. Therefore, “Vietnamese travel in Vietnam,” or “Hue locals travel in Hue,” or in other words, staycation, is a trend this summer.

Staycation combined with health care is a form of tourism with resort services, spa, beauty and health care. It is now popular among tourists. Traveling in this way, visitors can enjoy the feeling of relaxation and comfort when they participate in activities such as meditation, yoga, nourishment, mineral bath, mud bath, and massage. The core values of wellness tourism are to regenerate and fill the body with energy, and balance the mind.

“I decided to choose staycation combined with health care at a local resort. This helps to limit the risk of infection and save a lot of money spent on traveling. It is also a chance to explore interesting things about the hometown,” said Ho Thi Nhat Thuong, from Hue.

To young people who are keen on exploring and experiencing, this summer holiday is ideal to get together, plan an adventure trip or trekking, to get physically fit and ready for the conquer new lands.

Ha Khanh Linh from Hue said, “My friends and I took an adventure tour in Tu Lan, Quang Binh this summer. We spent 3 days and 2 nights climbing, swimming, eating and sleeping in the forest and caves, without Wi-Fi and mobile phone signals. We enjoyed every moment and immersed ourselves in the majestic and magical nature. It was the most memorable trip in my life that made me change my mind about what it should be like to experience and to release stress.”
