A code of conduct has been issued by Vietnam’s Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism for international and domestic tourists, tour operators and locals at tourism spots, Bernama news reported citing China’s Xinhua news agency. The code of conduct includes rules that tourists should obey such as standing in line and respecting local customs and culture.
In an effort to improve the reputation of the Ho Chi Minh city, the city’s Department of Tourism also released a code of conduct for domestic and foreign tourists on January 5th.
Last year, similar rules were released in several other localities, including central Da Nang and south central Nha Trang, capital Hanoi and ancient Hoi An cities.
According to Vietnam’s General Statistics Office, Vietnam received over 2.2 million international visitors, up 33 per cent year-on-year, in the first two months of 2017.
The country is expected to receive 11.5 million foreign visitors and 66 million domestic travelers, generating 460 trillion Vietnamese dong (US$20.3 billion) this year.
