Bach learnt about the tour from a post on Facebook fan page of the Management Board of Hoa Lo Prison Relic.

During the strict COVID-19 restrictions last year, 75 percent of people living in Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City used online food delivery services, according to a survey of Q&Me, a market research firm.
