Located in the South Asian continent, next to the Himalayas, between India and China, although the economy is ranked among the lowest in the world, but Bhutan is known as the happiest country in the world.

37 Indonesian citizens stranded in Vietnam flew home Monday via a special flight costing $278 a person, a discount from the normal $385.

They departed Vietnam’s Tan Son Nhat International Airport in Ho Chi Minh City via a Vietjet Air flight, Jakarta Post reported.

The repatriation flight carried the Indonesian citizens who had visited Vietnam for internships, traveling as well as workers laid off due to Covid-19. They had been stranded in the country for the past month due to travel restrictions imposed by the Vietnamese government to curb the spread of the pandemic.

Indonesia is currently the second largest Covid-19 hotspot in Southeast Asia, following Singapore. The country has recorded more than 9,000 Covid-19 cases and 765 deaths.

On Sunday, 105 Vietnamese nationals stuck in Indonesia were repatriated on a Vietjet Air flight that landed at Can Tho International Airport in Mekong Delta. Passengers all paid their own fares.

Earlier this month, 31 Indonesian crew members of two cargo ships that docked at Quang Ninh Port in northern Vietnam since mid-March were repatriated after finishing their 14-day quarantine.

Over 3,000 foreign tourists are stuck in Vietnam but only 11 percent wish to go home immediately, earlier reports revealed.

After Vietnam halted all international flights as a preventive measure to contain the spread of the novel coronavirus, many countries have organized special flights to repatriate their citizens.

The Philippines Embassy repatriated 143 people last week.

Earlier, hundreds of Europeans including British, Germans and Italians were also sent home from Vietnam.

“Gorgeous” beaches and “insanely good food” make Vietnam a great post Covid-19 destination, says New York-based travel magazine Travel + Leisure.

Vietnam and the Philippines are the only two Southeast Asian representatives in the magazine’s list of 17 must-to-go destinations in the world after the Covid-19 crisis ends.

With Vietnam continuing to suspend international flights and halting entry for all foreigners as a measure to contain the spread of the novel coronavirus, the leading U.S. travel site urges its readers to make travel plans to visit the country soon after the pandemic passes.

"Lying side by side with your friends on a gorgeous tropical beach and going to packed street food stalls and hole-in-the-wall restaurants, eating insanely good food elbow to elbow with strangers are not bad ideas," it says Wednesday.  

The Travel+Leisure list also included many famous tourist destinations around the world such as Rome, Australia, London in the U.K., Paris in France, Mexico and Italy.    

Vietnam has eased its social distancing restrictions since April 23 and its popular tourist destinations have reopened. The government has also allowed "non-essential" services except karaoke parlors and discos to resume operation.

A survey released this week by Thailand-headquartered hospitality consulting group C9 Hotelworks and communication firm Delivering Asia Communications says many Chinese citizens keen on traveling to Vietnam after the Covid-19 pandemic is contained.

The country’s infection tally rose to 288 after 17 Vietnamese repatriated from the UAE were confirmed positive on Thursday night. The country has ended 22 days without community transmission of the disease.
