Due to the developments of Covid-19, Hoi An city’s authorities temporarily suspended all activities at relic sites and the pedestrian street until March 31. In addition, the locality has simultaneously stopped receiving tourists at several places such as Cu Lao Cham, Bay Mau coconut forest, Thanh Ha pottery village, and Tra Que vegetable village.
