The global pandemic has brought the world to a halt, with everyone advised staying indoors to prevent further infection. This had a significant impact not only on the economy as more stores closed down but also in the way people go about their daily routines. Thankfully, local businesses are adjusting their way to the new normality as social distancing in Vietnam has been lifted, and here are our suggestions for your post-pandemic pastimes.
Having Coffee with Friends
The deeply-rooted culture of Vietnamese is catching up with friends over a great cup of coffee. Even though the gathering of big groups is not greatly encouraged, a ca phe sua da at a streetside coffee shop can undoubtedly rejuvenate your morning.
Coffee is the quintessential part of the Vietnamese lifestyle
Along with that, other food and beverage services are getting back to normal, and as much as people are excited to eat out again, everyone is taking cautious measures such as washing hands constantly whenever they can as well as wearing face masks in public.
Domestic traveling is slowly yet surely welcoming tourists, and what even better is that flights, buses, and lots of tourist services offer attractive discounts. Try looking online for “motorhome hire near me” and gather up your entire family for that much-needed road trip without having to think about where you can spend the night. Rather, bring along your camping gear and enjoy watching the brightness of the stars in the night sky.

Enjoying Nature and the Outdoors
Finally, people surely missed being close to nature, basking in the summer sun on the beach, or hiking a trail to the summit to witness magnificent views. Yes, you can bask in the sun in your yard or walk around your neighborhood while keeping a safe distance from other people. However, nothing beats the solemnity and peace that only nature can bring while hearing the birds chirping, or feeling the wind on your skin.
