The UNESCO World Heritage of Trang An Landscape Complex in the Vietnam northern province of Ninh Binh will stop welcoming visitors for two weeks starting from March 13 in an effort to prevent novel coronavirus.
The complex management board expressed their regret for the decision and hoped visitors would be sympathetic about the decision. The Dan Tri Newspaper reported on Friday.
This year Ninh Binh was set to host national tourism year. However, because of coronavirus outbreak, the press conference for the event has been suspended.
To date, Ninh Binh has confirmed one coronavirus case. Around 1,430 people are being monitored for returning from virus-hit areas and those contacted with the coronavirus patient.
Earlier, many other tourist sites in Vietnam such as Cat Ba Island in Haiphong City and Ly Son Island in Quang Ngai Province and Ha Long City in Quang Ninh Province decided to suspend the welcome of travelers to help coronavirus prevention.
