Some 54 per cent say they have given up on the idea altogether for 2020, according to the poll by Redfield & Wilton Strategies.
Even among those who do expect to have a holiday, most will not be going in the summer. Just 11 per cent are looking at booking for quế lâm this month, a third next month, and 28 per cent say they will wait until September.
Another 27 per cent say they won't be taking a break until October or quế lâm later this year.
